"I liked his size, bone structure, and conformation--including a long croup, as well as his movement," Carl Yamber remembers about the young colt. Photo © Kelly Graphics
Breeder Bill Rosenfeldt remembers the day that the special colt, who would eventually be known as These Irons Are Hot, was born. "He was born in a paddock outside. When I went to lead him in, I was taken aback because as big as the colt was, he loped beside the mare all the way in," said Rosenfeldt. "As a yearling, he was always easy going. He was never colty or arrogant. He was left uncut for that reason, as well as his size and big slow stride."

"I knew he was a nice horse, but I didn't know how he would be as a breeding stallion... If I would have known, obviously I wouldn't have sold him," says Rick Cecil. Photo © KC Montgomery
Always a crowd favorite, Lazy Loper was loved by many trainers and spectators when he showed as a two, three, and four year-old in western pleasure classes. Many remember fondly when the gorgeous bay came into the pen with his flashy blaze and huge thick forelock. Lazy immediately demanded attention with his looks, mind and movement. The 2005 AQHA World Champion and two-time Reserve Congress Champion clearly has passed on his traits to many of his offspring.

When you look at this gorgeous and loud colored stallion, one would immediately assume he was a paint. But, when he trots into an AQHA class, you realize there's definitely more to the story.
