Forgot to add, that a couple of months ago, I was looking at a Mini stallion I liked. He is a pretty buckskin tobiano, with a nice pedigree. He has produced some nice offspring. However, his $12,000 price tag, is more than we could afford or be willing to pay. I looked at another, who was a bay roan stallion. Gorgeous, but way more than I could afford. Minis are two-a-penny now, with thousands being sold for nothing, given away or ending up in auctions. Very sad for the breed. When was the last time you saw a Gypsy in a public auction or rescue. I know of less than a handful which had to be rehomed and only one which was at an auction in Florida. And this with Gypsies having been in the US now, since the 1980's.
Incidentally, the Gypsy seen in the Florida auction, was bred and sold originally, by a fairly famous trainer, who breeds and shows several other breeds. He also breeds designer dogs. Too bad that he would not agree to get this horse back and rehome it.
Forgot to add, we also have Minis, an Arab and a palomino Paint mare, which my granddaughters own.
