Welcome to our 2021 Mahlstedt Ranch Quarter Horse Open House! Our open house started years ago when we invited our neighbors and friends over to see the foals tied up the weekend of halter breaking. In recent years, it has surprised us by expanding into what it is today. It is the only day of the year when all our mares, stallions, and sale offering are on display at the ranch.
We sell all of our horses by private treaty year-round and are happy to have you out to visit our horses at pasture when you are able to come. Please do not feel that if you cannot attend the Open House you will miss out on purchasing an MRI horse! We strive to have horses available for sale year-round to meet the needs of our customers.
To hopefully improve the opportunity for everyone interested in specific horses, we will implement a silent auction process at our open house this year.
Pasture Pick Pricing will end on Wednesday, August 25th. No weanlings will be sold August 26-28th.
A price listing of individual weanlings will be posted for download on this page at 8 a.m. August 29th. This list will have each horse’s individual base price.
Our Open House will open at 2 p.m. August 29th. 2:00-4:00 pm – A clipboard with bid sheets for each horse will be present for progressive written bidding. At 4:00 pm the top 2 bidders on each horse can verbally bid to the winning bid. Any horses with no written bids will remain offered at the base list price.
We will give a 5% discount on the final bid price for all weanlings purchased the day of our Open House.
Youth will receive a 10% discount on weanlings. Must provide documentation of current enrollment in appropriate youth organization and colt to maturity project.
Full payment must be received the day of the Open House to qualify for any discounts.
We will accept credit card payments. A 3% credit card fee will be added to the purchase price.
Foals will be weaned that day and loaded out with brand inspections.
All horses going out of state will be taken to the vet on the 30th (the day following Open House) for Coggins/health and will be ready for shipment from our Glendive location within one week.
We are very humbled by the interest in our horses and our program. We hope this is a process that proves more fair for all who are interested in individual horses. We are happy to take suggestions on how to improve the process in the future.
Please let us know if you have any questions. If you are unable to attend the Open House, just let us know when you would like to visit. If you are interested in bidding on a certain horse the day of the Open House but cannot attend, we ask that you notify Tana as soon as possible so we can help you most effectively.
You can call or text Tana with questions @ 406-939-1890
