An online breeding auction in aid of Breast Cancer will be launched on 14 February. The Breast Cancer Research Stallion Breeding Auction is the brainchild of Marie-Ann Davies who hopes to raise thousands of pounds for Breast Cancer Research.

“The grassroots horse world is predominantly female and the large majority of us are touched by breast cancer in some way every year,” explained Ms Davies. “I thought an auction would be an exciting way to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.”

The auction is largely centred round Arabian stallions – owners are invited to offer their stallion’s semen for auction. Each stallion will have an online page supplying potential bidders with photos and breeding details. Bids can be made online between the 14 February and 14 March.

Ms Davies has already received a large response: “We had 27 new stallions added in one week,” she explained. “It is impossible to say how much the auction will raise but with starting bids a minimum of £250, we are already looking at over £7000.”
