Smokin The Jay made a major mark in reined cow horse events in just a few months, winning two championships and earning money in reined cow horse, versatility, and AQHA Ranching Heritage, shown by 15-year-old Dallie Lawrence and Justin Lawrence.
His near-perfect conformation is just the beginning. He is a huge stopper, does beautiful reining maneuvers, and has plenty of control plus speed. “Amos” has all the skills for an awesome versatility, cow, and rope horse.
In late 2021, "Amos" was sold to Chris Wehling of Colorado, who needed a new heel horse. Within a few months, Chris was winning money on him at the tough Arizona winter numbered team ropings. In Summer 2022, Chris' son won 3rd heeling on Amos at a tough numbered roping.
Amos has always been a willing learner. As with all Long Pines horses he’s proven himself on the ranch, too. He’s gathered in big pastures, worked cattle in pens, doctored in the pasture, and done his share in the branding pen.
This classy, athletic gelding is by Long Pines' NRCHA champion, Bettin Yer Smart, out of Sterling’s high school cutting mare Smokin Hickory Girl. Out of our first Bettin Yer Smart foal crop, he quickly showed us the value of this line. Smokin The Jay's pedigree is literally the “Who’s Who” of cow horses: Smart Little Lena, Peptoboonsmal, Freckles Playboy, Peppy San Badger, Doc's Hickory and Doc O’Lena.
AQHA Ranching Heritage and SDRCHA eligible.
Heeling in Arizona March 2022.
