A major US importer and breeder of Gypsy Vanners is in Texas (it gets pretty hot in Texas), and I am sure they do just fine in warmer climates, like any draft breed would in the southern US.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

Well, when I made a call asking for more photos from the specific horses they sell , they told me that there are so many horses that it's impossible for me not to choose and that it's not easy for them to make photos for 40 horses.There are 3 foals up to 1 year old and they are expecting births in the next months.Of course they don't mean crosses ,they talked about very good pedigrees and blood lines but if I don't visit them everything they say are only words.
I red about cpl problems when you firtst mentioned it and as I can see,it's a very hard disease, and diagnosis, can be only foun by visual examination isn't that right?Or blood examinationcan or something would be necessary?I have to find a vet I can trust there to be with me.

Hmm. Odd. They are obviously in the racing business. I would think an enormously large stable as this, would post pics of all their horses and that of foals.

Plenty of people in horses, with a large number of animals and who sell offspring, have pics of their stallions and mares, plus the pedigrees. I see they have pedigrees of some of their Thoroughbreds but none of their Gypsies or even pics of their Gypsy mares.

We don't have Gypsy breeders in Romania. The breed is becoming more popular day by day but nobody is breeding them yet. Last year when I was searching for a Gypsy for sale I found a person that was selling 2 mares and one colt or filly but nothing spectacular. The horses were not well cared for and I'm sure that they were a very low quality. The only possibility that I found was importing one from another country. I searched for breeders in France, Germany, Spain and Netherlands. I found a breeder in France and I was really impressed by her site and horses. She has photos with all the horses that were put to sale, and she has around 50 - 70 horses. If you have a Facebook account you can take a look at the horses that she's selling. https://www.facebook.com/corinne.eisele

We just talked to a guy that had a truck and trailer, so not a professional transporter. Is very hard here to find a professional livestock/horse transporter and if you find one is usually an international name that transport horses and is a bit on the expensive side. We payed around 1500 euros for almost/around 3600 km. You should think ahead if you decide to import a horse from such a distance. They want you to have a transport plan, to know exactly when and where do you intend to stop and let the horse rest. The lady that we bought the horse from asked us to tell her at what location we will stop on the road and let the horse rest. So you certainly need a transporter that knows places where you can stop for the night with the horse.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1431660&type=3 This is the horse that we bought from her. We bought the horse from photos and I was the one in charge with buying it. So I was really worried. But he was a sweetheart and still is. Very smart and willing horse without a mean bone in his body. You wouldn't guess he's a stallion if you don't check. He was green broke but well started. Wasn't pushy or scared, just very curios, well socialized and willing. So I would really recommend this breeder.

Gorgeous horse! He is so sweet! And with this personality you are very lucky!
For 3600 km only 1500 e?? This is a very good price! The transport plan is difficult to be made..I didn't think that I could find another way to transport them except these professional international agents.. I don't think I can find somenone here in Greece.They asked this price bulgarian agent from Varna to Athens much less km than 3600!The price is doubled with Greek agents.
I found one more site in Italy .They seem serious breeders but I can't see so many choices of horses.Though there are some very cute :
IN VENDITA/FOR SALE
