A Bit of information on Gypsy Horses ~
Gypsy Horses have been bred by the Gypsy Families, the Traveling folk in the United Kingdom for a particular "type" for generations. When you hear people refer to a "Traditional" or "Proper" Gypsy Horse they mean their horses have the build, bone, temperament and hair they originally bred for and they are true to type, reproducing the same type consistently for generations. This horse evolved from many generations of selective breeding by the true Gypsy breeders and Romany folk. This horse is strong, baroque, sensible, docile and gentle. They are one of the most loyal horses being incredibly hard working as well as beautiful equines. They exhibit extreme hair/feather. They come in many colors and patterns, the black/white tobiano pattern became the most popular but other colors/patterns are coming back and are highly prized by those that desire more coat colors. We personally are most taken with black/white aka Piebald:)
These horses are magical to look at and watch...like something in a dream...being in their presence is one of life's most beautiful moments are they inspire confidence and beauty. Very few ever exhibit a bad disposition, this breed is bred to be calm in nature and are generally easy going and willing to please. The trust and mutual affection between these horses and their owners in indeed on of life's most precious experiences! We are thrilled to have added Gypsy Horses to our lives and we know you will be too. Ride and Drive horses for the whole family as part of the family, we welcome you to share in a dream come true...
Do not let those fool you by the talks that the Gypsy Horses are different, that the name or registry makes the difference. Do your homework, check out the bloodlines and background of these horses and you will find that it is true, they are all the same Gypsy horse descending from the same foundation bloodlines and Imported from the same original Gypsy Horse breeders.
within any breed, there are those that strive to have and produce
quality horses and those that may get their hands on some that don't
reproduce themselves and of lesser quality. We here at RWF strive for
quality all around, from head to tail to hoof with known traditional
bloodlines and/or from well known Gypsy Breeders across the pond with
quality stock, our first Gypsy's were imported directly from England and
we could not be more thrilled with all of them that have blessed our lives.
(One of our first Imports above in February 2005, now known as Gypsy Wind and our lovely Emma's dam)
at Running Wind Farms, we have done our homework, we have researched bloodlines and have collected over the past ten years top quality Gypsy Horses to ensure in
our program that we will best serve all of you by producing only the
best to continue here in the States what the original breeders spent
lifetimes successfully achieving. We have in the past carried on their Legacy here
in the States as they have blessed us with a phenomenal breed of horse!
Many thanks to the Gypsies and their pride of their Horses we have come
to know one of the sweetest, hairiest and most beautiful horse as the
Gypsy and this horse has captivated our hearts! We have scaled down with our herd size for the next couple of years, we will only be breeding for one or two foals each year but have not compromised the quality of what we produce or offer to the best of homes! See our Gypsy Horse page (link on the navigation bar above) to have a look at what we have to offer.
