PINHOOKING

WEANLING PURCHASE & ON TRADE

In recent years Suman has become more interested in the area of pinhooking which is effectively the purchase and on trade of weanlings.

Suman spent several years evaluating this sector before getting involved and has achieved some exceptional results from his forays to date.

Suman is an advocate of pinhooking as he sees it as an effective trade mechanism where good foresight and understanding of conformation/value can lead to very good returns on investment.
