The owner, Harry Eyler, began in 1933 selling horses and livestock. At that time, draft and workhorses were a necessity on a farm. Harry would go out to Billings, Montana and buy loads of horses that would be shipped back to Thurmont on rail cars to the local train station.
In the mid 1930's Harry allowed his daughter-in-law, Ruth, to have auctions for riding horses at the stables. Ruth would travel down through Virginia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and many other southern states buying loads of quality riding horses and shipping them back to be sold at the horse auction.
Wolfe Auctions has been in business since 1976 and primarily specialized in heavy equipment and trucks. In 2020, Joshua Ruby, President and Owner of Wolfe Agricultural Auctions, approached Niki Eyler about the lease of her facility as Wolfe Auctions loved its location in Central Maryland. Wolfe Auctions immediately took over the already existing horse auctions at The Eyler's Stables. Which made the entire team here at Wolfe Auctions fall in love with horses. Long story short, this is how Wolfe Agricultural Auctions was born. We hope you will stop by The Stables and see how we are changing the Horse Auction World here at Wolfe Agricultural Auctions!
