Goodbars N Hot Irons ("Brownie") is a very attractive, well-built and extremely good-natured dark grown gelding by the 2012 #1 Equi-Stat Hunter Under Saddle stallion, These Irons Are Hot. His dam, Good Bar Smokey Too, is an own daughter of All-time AQHA Leading Sire, Zippos Mr Good Bar, and has an ROM and over 40 AQHA points in a variety of disciplines. She is an AQHA and NSBA money earner and multiple qualifier for Hunter Under Saddle and Hunt Seat Equitation at the AQHA Select World Show.
"Brownie" is a very handsome, talented and good-minded All-Around. After being started last spring, he has recently completed approximately 30 days of training under saddle.. According to his trainer: "...he is a sweetheart of a horse, he wants to please and be in your pocket! He is very trainable and could easily be finished by an amateur. His nice slow movement is mesmerizing and he feels like a big rocking chair. This gelding has all the potential to be a top notch show horse!". His under saddle performance clearly demonstrates that he has the willingness, disposition and, most importantly, the carriage and great movement at all 3 gaits. He is an excellent novice/amateur prospect and, with his great disposition, suitable for 4H as well.
Handled since birth, "Brownie" has all of the basics including leading, tying, farrier, bathing, trailer loading and hauling (does great!), round pen, de-sensitizing, ground work, etc. He has a super disposition, is very easy to work with, and a ready and willing learner.
Currently stands 16.1 hands over the withers; 16.1 over the hip.
Has no vices or behavioral issues. Up to date on all vaccinations, worming, etc.
Note: "Brownie" exhibited lameness in the fall of 2018 and the examination, including full body nuclear scintigraphy scan, revealed only that the location for his soreness was in the area of the right lateral split bone in the right hindlimb. Conservative management (pasture rest for 6 months to a year with reevaluation) was elected for follow-up. A follow-up reevaluation (including visual inspection at all 3 gaits, palpation, and flexion test) was conducted in late summer of 2019 and showed no lameness. He was then put into training last fall for approximately 30 days and no lameness issues were detected. Veterinarian reports are available upon request.
