Hello all, I am now the proud owner of a 4 year old Gypsy Vanner/percheron mare. She has very little training and as of now has no papers. I was able to contact the original breeder and I will be getting her papered this year. She is out of a gypsy Vanner stud named Governor that is now deceased. She is the only horse I have other than my Spotted mini Jack. I want to start driving her from the ground and will be grateful for any tips you all may have. Thanks
Thank you. I am calling her Sparkles. She is short around 15.1hh. I traded a small puppy for her and was just going to resale her on craigslist. Then I was able to track down her original breeder and he talked me into keeping her. I had horses most of my life and when I sold out a few years ago I swore I would never allow another Hay burner on the place. I also sold every thing all tack and even my big trailer. And that was a big mistake (Never sell your trailer)you don't know how bad I miss that trailer. I am really looking forward to getting this mare broke to pull and I would also like to be able to ride her. I have ridden draft horses in the past and they are like Cadillacs of the horse world.
