Lone Oak 12 Viking
Raised on our farm.
Sold in 2014 to Seamon Percherons. Went on for sale for $67,500 at the Mid-America Draft Horse Sale in February 2016. This was a record-breaking top sale price.
Bred by Lone Oak Percherons of Birtle, Manitoba, Canada, the horse sold to Brian Thiel & Jason Bexson, Didsbury, Alberta, Canada, consigned by Jeff Berger, Black Gold Percherons, Williston, North Dakota. This makes Viking the highest-selling draft gelding of any breed, any time, anywhere (he replaced Harry, a 6-year-old gelding which sold for $60,000 at the 2014 National Clydesdale Sale).
