More About Bettin Yer Smart

Passing It On

Long Pines Land and Livestock wasn’t looking for a stallion when they saw Bettin Yer Smart at Justin Lawrence Cow Horses, but they couldn’t walk away from him. Under Justin’s program, this big-hearted roan defined working cow horse in the Northern Plains. His great versatility, trainability and try are carried on in his bloodline.
