This elegant-moving mare is sired by Long Pines NRCHA Champion Bettin Yer Smart (Jayhawk), out of Shiney Vaca Reina. Sheba has been started right by the team at Justin Lawrence Cowhorses. Her dark palomino coat with white mane and tail catches everyone’s eye – but we’re just as impressed with her try, grit and kindness. Smart Vaca Reina, "Sheba," can really cover the ground and loves to handle a cow, both in the arena and in the pasture.
Sheba made her reined cow horse debut in Fall 2019, becoming a NRCHA money-earner at her first show. She is really coming along, especially in fence work. As she transitions from snaffle bit to hackamore, we expect she will advance quickly.
She is part of the first Bettin Yer Smart foal crop. We've found that he is consistently passing on his valued traits of talent, trainability and try. His Peptoboonsmal, Bet Yer Blue Boons and Smart Little Lena bloodlines are coming through will all kinds of agility and cow sense.
Sheba's dam, Shiney Vaca Reina, is sired by Vaca Rey, who is a full brother to Wild Thing DNA ($109,558 earnings). The bottom side of Shiney’s pedigree is just as impressive: the legendary Shining Spark and Taris Catalyst.
