    Pretty horse but I wouldn't pay $35,000 for it:

    Gypsy Vanners are indeed a very lovely horse, I've been a fan of them for a while. I'm a sucker for anything with feathers. I would love to have one if I had the money (then again, if I had the money I would have as many horses as possible). I too am a poor college (art student actually. That's even worse money-wise) so I feel your pain.

    I love them, but I can't see spending what they want for them here when you can go to Europe and ship them back here for less. Even with vet checks and quarantine it's much cheaper to ship them then it is to buy them here. They are also a better quality.

    I have no experience with them but they are easy on the eyes. I've never seen one in person.

    Exactly! I have some pals across the pond and they are always giving me a bad time about how the yanks pay so much money for horses that aren't worth much there in England.

    They said you can often find them left tied to a fence on the side of the road. They are absolutely beautiful but not at all worth the amount of money people are charging for them. Talk about a huge rip off.

    Sadly it is a status symbol for a lot of folks as to how much they can spend. Yes, they are very pretty. However $35,00.00 for one horse!?!?! Please....... There are so many good horses going to waste right here that that amount of money could save, or at least help.

    I do love the look of the breed, however.......I'll stick to my mutts and my rescues and be very happy with my $500.00 horses.

    I also love this breed, and own 2 adult mares, 1 yearling filly and a filly. Do you like to see them?

    The prices in the USA are very high indeed.. Here in Holland a good breeding mare will cost around 7000 euro`s, that is around 10000 dollar.. But the flight from Europe to the US is expensive..

    I think they're cute, but way too expensive. I would just get one imported from Europe where they're cheap =P
