“Han” is a yearling gelding by When in Chrome and out of a gorgeous Hot Ones Only mare.
For those of you that like to look farther down the line in a maternal pedigree, Han’s dam, Hoos Paying the Bill, is herself out of a Real Bonanza x Marked IV Real mare who produced multiple APHA performance champions and 2 Reserve World champions.
Back to Han…he’s got that When in Chrome metronome at the trot and canter (IYKYK), in other words, he’s got cadence to spare. He will excel in the hunter under saddle pen and try really hard to bring you home good checks from all the exciting programs he is paid into:
- Premier Sires,
- NSBA Stallion Incentive,
- Color Breeders Futurity,
- and, of course, the APHA Breeders Futurity.
This is, obviously, why his registered name is Dolla Dolla Bills. (Well, that and because Han’s breeders are millennial farm kids who grew up listening to a very specific mix of Don Williams, Garth Brooks, and the Doggs, both Nate and Snoop.)
Like his namesake Han Solo of intergalactic fame, Han is a charismatic fellow with a flaxen mane and a lot of swagger. Han’s been learning life skills this summer and has done all the basic training you’d want to see to get him ready for the next phase of life under saddle. He is on track to mature somewhere in the 16.1-16.3 range.
To be honest, we don’t really want to sell Han, but we made a critical parenting error and got our kid a pony. And you all know, if you get your kid a pony, eventually she’s going to want a show horse to go with it. So, here we are, Han needs a home so we can put a down payment on a youth horse.
