You can see lots on my daughter's Harlequin Farms link at the bottom here. Click on Information and it will take you to tons of other pages.

You might also like to see my friend Chelle's stable. She also has Friesians.
Misty Valley Gypsy Cobs

Look here for a top quality breeder in the UK.
Clononeen Farm - Gypsy Cob Horses For Sale
Diedre is Irish but lives in England. Generations in her family have bred these horses. Lots of beautiful animals to see on her site.

Google for Gypsy Horses in Canada, and you will probably find stables near you to visit. There are several big breeders there.

And just a note. I explained here,
http://www.horseforum.com/draft-horses/gorgeous-gypsy-horse-120535/page3/
Why comparitively few Gypsies, are 'vanners'. Most do not call their horses 'vanners' and neither do the Gypsy breeders in the UK. It was a name coined by someone who then made his own registry by the same name.

My first Gypsy Vanner, a yearling colt - stallion prospect - just brought in from Florida... one of the very few Vanners in South Carolina. I should get his color genetics tests back soon... I couldn't wait for him to be breeding age, I have to know now! Haha. Excuse the weird angle that makes his front legs look uneven on the second photo!!! I wanted to show off his cool chest markings.

Very cute boy. What is his breeding? Looks bay tobiano, with lots of splash and sabino of one type or another.

I thought there were quite a lot of Gypsies in your area?

He is by Phantom Knight out of Royale Princess.

Nope, there are very few in my state. A couple of small broodmare bands in the lower part of the state but nobody stands any Gypsy stallions... at least to the public.

Here are a couple, off the top of my head.

Catcha Dream Farm - Paint Horses~Quarter Horses~Thoroughbreds~Gypsy

Enchanted Forest probably still has a website. Maybe Grey Ghost does also. I know there are more. Just can't think of them at the moment.

I quite like the sire of your colt. I've known him for a little while. I wish the breeder would put real pedigrees up though.

What mares do you have, that you chose this fellow for a [possible stud? Is your colt actually a bay silver maybe?

I love the Gypsy Horses. Such kind creatures.

Yes, that's in the lower part of the state... but again they don't actually stand a Gypsy stallion, that I am aware of. I've never heard of those other two... but thanks I'll see what I can find.

Phantom Knight is pretty cool... and an interesting color for a Vanner.

I do not have any Gypsy Vanner mares, so my grand total of about 2 foals per year will be crosses... but I sure don't mind that, and from what I've been able to find they are actually in pretty high demand, too. My main hope is that I'd be able to stand him publicly-limited book- once he is old enough. And of course he will be my riding horse.

I have no idea what actual color my guy is... he is registered as a piebald but I agree with you and think there is something else there... bay or a slight dilution? Or something... should get my test results back from UC Davis soon!

And yes I agree, such kind creatures! I can't believe how easy going this guy is, and he's just a yearling!

Well m'dear, Gypsy crosses are not in high demand. Who told you that? I have been trying to give one away on many public forums, for a while now, for the owner. No takers! Why make crosses of anything, when there are thousands of purebreds of all breeds, being sold to kill buyers?

While so far, we have seen only one or two purebred Gypsies at public auctions, we have seen many crosses. Yes - many.

Why do you wish to become known as just another BYB? (Back yard breeder) A breeder of crossbreds? Who and what breed, are the mares you are considering crossing? What have they to offer?

Yes, many unfortunately think that breeding Gypsy crossbreds is the way to go. Not all find homes. What will be your requirement, as to your colt's breeding worth? Just because he has some background of Gypsy, doesn't mean he will be worth breeding, to anything. What homework have you done on the pedigree of your horse?

Sorry, but this annoys me.

okayyy... thanks for the... well, feels like an attack

You are assuming I'm an idiot. Of course I've done my research on the bloodline, on my market, etc. Unless you are in my position and know all of the minute details, please do not assume that I don't know what the heck I'm doing.... I'll just go back to not posting anything, since this is the reaction I receive.

And I saw the post of the ones you are trying to give away. Down right fugly. My mares are much nicer, as is my stallion. If I produce one that looks like that darn straight I will stop.

Not an attack at all. Just pointing out some facts which most knowledgeable/responsible equine enthusiasts, already know.

I don't remember anyone asking for a critique on the horses I posted for rehoming. It's a big no-no on the net, to critique a dog or horse, without a request by the owner.

You mentioned your stallion. I wasn't even aware you already owned a stallion, but just a few assorted mares, some of which you have shown on this forum as fairly recently purchased. If you are speaking of your colt, then it will be a couple years until you will be able to decide, if he is indeed breeding quality at all.
