Born 1-16-18 “Smarty” is a sorrel stallion with probable roaning through his belly and flanks. He has a big white blaze and 2 hind white matching socks. He is definitely stamped with his sire’s stance and look as well as the added size and thickness of his mama. His dam is Anyware who was purchased October 2016 from Wagonhound Land & Livestock Co., LLC as a consignment at the Return to the Remuda Sale at The Four Sixes Ranch in Texas. We had been looking for a daughter of Playgun for a couple years and are very pleased with the purchase of ‘Jewels’. We feel her pedigree speaks for itself. She is about 14-3, very feminine and stout and thick. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She was purchased open for 2017 but with an inclusive 2017 breeding to WR This Cats Smart. We enrolled her in the embryo transfer program which resulted in 2 full siblings by WR and two more expected full siblings by Bet Hesa Cat due early May.
WR This Cats Smart is a 1999 Sorrel Stallion (High Brow Cat–The Smart Look, by Smart Little Lena) and an Earner of $236,514. His accomplishments include making the finals of 24 Major Aged Events at 4, 5, and 6! NCHA Open Finals Champion (Winning the 1st (tie) and 2nd Go-Rounds), 2017 NRCHA #1 and NCHA #8 Leading Sire, 2017 #1 Leading Ranching Horse Sire, an NCHA All-Time Leading Sire and an Equi-Stat Top 25 All-Time Leading Reined Cow Horse Sire. His foals have earned $10,200,000! "A star all the way - so very smart and stylish," as Tim Smith described WR This Cats Smart upon winning the 2005 NCHA Finals. Tim has trained many greats, but few turning in this sheer number of memorable performances. Dam is, The Smart Look, the only mare to have produced an NCHA Open Futurity, Open Super Stakes and Open Derby Champion. Her foals have earned more than $1,800,000!
Smarty is a flashy foal with all the right moves and the pedigree! He was injured as a newborn and unfortunately lost is eyesight in his left eye. Although he is handicapped, this foal is getting around great and is put together right and will make a great stallion prospect! We can provide pictures and video upon request. Keep in mind that even though he most likely won’t make a cutter or cowhorse prospect without two good eyes, he may make a reiner or roper with a rider he trusts and brings him along slowly as well as definitely being that stallion prospect in our opinion.
Please note: The mare in these pictures if the recip mama not genetically related to the foal.
UPDATE 6/9/21: Smarty was 3 in January. He has been handled regularly in training since May 2019 to bring him along and prep him for life with only one eye. He has been handled and ponied from both sides. He has been started under saddle and coming along nicely and getting good muscling. He doesn't miss a step even with his eye. Smarty is athletic, quick and smart and still a good candidate for roping training or ranch riding or a ranch stallion. He has now been sold to Illinois and will cover some mares & also have a potential show future.
