Whew. You had me scared for a second. I thought he had died. Lee Dunn is one of those exhibitors who I will forever remember! Just love to watch him drive. Congress will not be the same without him there.

My wife spoke with Bev Dunn. Dunn Haven is reducing numbers but this is not a dispersal sale and Lee has not had any recent health problems. Apparently he mentioned to someone that he needed to reduce numbers and the rumors began. I don't think Bev even knew that there was anything on the Hackney web site.

OH, that's good! Any chance they'll be making the trip to Congress? I so enjoy watching him drive.

That came from the AHHS website and it does not state a dispersal sale, only a reduction in breeding and show stock. Where did someone come up with dispersal?

We draw conclusions from the words we read.

So, from the headline "Sad News - Dun Haven Farm" and the line "After years of being in the Hackney industry and due to health concerns Lee Dunn has decided to sell his breeding and show stock," it was not a leap for some folks to conclude it was a dispersal sale.

That's the conclusion I reached ... until there were other posts clarifying the situation.

It is a sad news Bob - Lee has been actively involved for over 60 years in both the Hackney and Shetland show rings. The entry came straight from the AHHS website, so if they had it wrong, then someone did come to a bad conclusion. Kay I don't know if he asked for it to be run, it was blasted out to the AHHS community though. I got it through several yahoo groups as well.

It is true they are selling some of their breeding and show stock.

Oh well, I agree, if the health concern was in error, hopefully that will get corrected.
