This 2020 sorrel filly gets her beauty and brains from her impeccable pedigree. She is out of YOR Flamin Hot by Bettin Yer Smart, and she is both smart and ready for action.
YOR Flamin Hot (deceased), the Appaloosa mare known as “Appy” at Long Pines, comes from a long line of Canadian cow horse champions. Her sire, YOR White Hot, was the 2005 Canadian National Overall High Point Cattle Events Horse. Her paternal grandsire, YOR High Noon, is one of the most winning cow horse Appaloosas of all time, with 17 Canadian national championships in working cow horse, reining, cutting, western riding, team penning and flag picking. Appy’s maternal line is full of AQHA legends. Her dam is a granddaughter of Colonel Freckles and Tanguery Gin, Equi-Stat All-Time Leading Cutting Sire of Foals, earning more than $2.3 million.
Appy, who died in 2021, stood 15HH and was known for her athletic ability, kind eye, and using horse conformation. She was a great mountain and ranch horse, and a great mount for ranch rodeos.
Gin’s sire is the legendary Bettin Yer Smart, son 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 Open Hackamore division, the first horse from the Northern Plains to win at this prestigious event. A few months later, he won NRCHA World Reserve Open 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.
Gin has a promising future with genes that say she will be equally at home in the arena and on the ranch. That's the mark of perfection for Long Lines.
