Exactly, BRA.

Just one of the reasons, breeding should be not taken lightly. Difficult enough to produce top quality offspring, when breeding two top quality parents, who compliment each other. Breeding crossbreds is even more of a risk. The f1 generation can look like one or other parent, a little of both or something of neither. Even more of a gamble, if the two breeds used, are completely different in type.

It's odd, that these days I see many breeding Gypsy crosses and asking more for them than purebreds of a decent background.

OK, this is a thread for OooOOo'ing and AAAhhhhhh'ing over gypsy's- not bashing anybody else for their breeding crossbreds, or their ugly horses.

I love gypsy vanners. I can't wait to see more pics.

Sweet Gypsy

Hi All and especially Lizzy,
I am excited to be on here. This is my first post. I am a new horse owner (two quarter horses), but a lady boarding next to us has a Gypsy Vanner (at least she calls it that). I have loved her since the moment I met her and was mystified by her beauty. Sadly enough the owner is sick so we are now talking about purchasing her. I am excited to learn as much as I can about the breed and have loved reading your posts.

Hopeful Gypsy Vanner Owner

Lizzie,
I am not sure of her breeding (I should find out today). The only thing I know is they call her Jazz. She is all black, white feet and white stripe down her face. I truly don't know anything about her other than she is super sweet and only 3 years old. Her owner has become very ill. Our other two horses are quarter horses, one 9 yr. Old dark buckskin mare (gorgeous little thing with alot of reigning training), and a big beautiful 6 yr old palomino gelding-not much training but we have had about 60 days training since we got him and he is doing great. We are beginners and having a blast.

I just learned all her information. Her name is Jasmine, Sire Taskin GV00557F and Dam Lenka GV00728F. Do you know them? I love reading all your wealth of knowledge about them. I met with the owners today, so sad she is so sick. It's a tough decision, although I love this horse, just need to be smart financially too. Now I am just pondering it hoping to see the light!

I can tell you a bit.

Look here for Lenka.
Welcome to Villa Vanners

She was originally sold by Gypsy MVP. She was resold by June Villa.

Look half way down the page here and you'll see your girl I think. Villa Vanners June Bug.

That's her

Lizzie,
Thanks so much...I never expected that! Her sire is gorgeous. What are your thoughts of her breeding/genetics/lineage (not sure what you call it). I would love your opinion of her. I didn't realize she was chocolate, but now that I read that yes, she is. I really thought she was black and needed grooming. She has a sweet disposition, as I see others online I see some that are much more beautiful than her but I really love her personality (just don't want to be stupid financially). The ill owner wants what she paid $12K, do you have any advice? Thanks so much!
