This young sorrel mare carries so many great bloodlines, and carries them with ease.
She brings together the premier Long Pines stallion lines of Bettin Yer Smart (Smart Little Lena x Bet Yer Boons) and Judgemental (Judge Cash). Fire is the granddaughter of Sterling’s outstanding cutting mare, Smokin Hickory Girl, known as Smoke on the ranch.
Fire’s dam is Truth and Justice, a pretty grey mare owned by Sterling. She comes from Smokin Hickory Girl by Judgemental, with a linage that includes Judge Cash (offspring earnings of $2.3 million) and Doc’s Hickory (offspring earnings of more than $18 million). She’s a half-sibling to reined cow horse turned rope horse Smokin The Jay and regional barrel racing standout Smoke to Ashes.
Fire’s sire is Bettin Yer Smart out of Smart Little Lena and Bet Yer Boons, and grandson of NCHA Open World Champion Bet Yer Blue Boons. At the 2012 Snaffle Bit Futurity, Bettin Yer Smart won the Hackamore division, the first horse from the Northern Plains to win at this prestigious event. A few months later, he won NRCHA Open World Reserve Hackamore Champion. He qualified for NRCHA worlds in hackamore, two-rein and bridle. In the AQHA, he was 2011 High Point Open Junior Working Cow Horse, earning 36.5 AQHA points plus a Register of Merit in Open Performance. Bettin Yer Smart is among an honored few to be named an NRCHA Supreme Working Cow Horse.
Fire has winning in her blood, and the potential to set the arena on fire.
