Dunitsmart Thistime, AKA Smarty, is a well mannered, friendly, handsome, conformationally correct, 15.1 hh red dun stallion.  Smarty is broke to ride but is unshown due to a wire cut he obtained as a two year old but he is proving his worth as a stallion.  His first limited foal crop in Canada was in 2012.  He passes on his looks and trainable, athletic, friendly nature to his colts.

This video taken on October 21, 2018 speaks volumes....

Smarty is a trained reiner, but not shown due to a wire cut and, he has not been ridden since about 2009.  Wit the exception of a 5 minute bareback ride a few years ago, I have not ridden him since he arrived at D Hanson Ranch in 2011.  But on this day, I jumped on him bareback to accept a bareback challenge.  He handled it like a champ!
