Auction Update

Knowing that many of you would like to know the outcome of the auction, we are posting this update.
The turn out was quite good. Some 40 people came to the auction, but, none of them brought the necessary $$$ to be able to purchase the farm, as we did not allow the property being sold undervalued.
Stay tuned for additional updates coming soon.
Thank you to all our FB friends and Supporters

Goodbye Derringer

On October 9th we said ‘Good Bye’ to our retired stallion Derringer. He was the first American-born approved D-Line Hanoverian stallion, the 1989 winner of the North American 100 Day Stallion performance testing, a gentle soul and the most wonderful companion. Derringer was THE reason why Ashanti Farm was created and HE will always be remembered by us and HE will remain the symbol of Ashanti’s success. Good bye, DIDI, WE LOVE YOU.
