Lot 40


2024 “KIDS BID” Scholarship is the absolute BEST and a dream come true for the Blue Valentine & Driftwood Heritage Production Breeders.

As part of the annual BV&D Heritage Production Sale, this scholarship came from auctioning Lot 40, as the “KIDS BID ONLY.” 2021 was our very first-time allowing kids ages 16 & under only, to bid at the Blue Valentine and Driftwood Heritage Production Sale, in September, in Springfield, Missouri. 

The BV&D scholarship was created with the intention of keeping our youth engaged and interested in agriculture and/or educating future generations. The idea for the “KIDS BID ONLY” came from an experience that JD Lauing, one of the BV&D breeders had when he was a kid and his father allowed him the opportunity to bid on and purchase a horse at an auction. The first-ever “KIDS BID ONLY” was so successful, the BV&D breeders’ group decided to use the proceeds to develop a scholarship fund for kids 17 and older that would be going to college for their freshman or sophomore year. The scholarship amount is $1,500 was first awarded in 2022. 

Contact any of the breeders with your questions. LAUING RANCH Quarter Horses (South Dakota), Sunrise Farm Quarter Horses (Alabama), Moonshine Creek Quarter Horses (Arkansas). 

Deadline for Entries: All entries, including accompanying letter of recommendation and a copy of your transcript must be submitted by no later than May 30, 2024. Winners will be notified by June 30, 2024.
