This is my mom's gypsy vanner. We have had him since he was weaned. He is now 4 years old. I will have to start working with him and break him to ride this summer. His name is Killian.

This picture is from the day we brought him home. (One of my favorite pictures of him.)

What are their tempers like? Their general work ethic? Are they easy to work with?

Absolutely beautiful. How can you not want a Gypsy when you see those photos. I wish we had more out here, they are absolutely beautiful.

Thanks, He is a good boy. My wife rides him on trail rides. He is very good on the trail. We went on one trail ride, seven riders, one mare in heat and he was a perfect gentleman. Interesting how he wants to be the last in line. Does not like to be up front. In the back, he can keep an eye on "his herd" and that is where he likes to be.

Hi my2geldings - they are so easy to work with and just want to please all the time, they were bred to live with the gypsy families so are very well mannered too. This temperament comes through with the modern breeding as well .

I loved your website especially all the pictures of gypsys in all types of jobs. I want one now : ) They are absolutely beautiful and seem to have great temperaments.

They are such a beautiful breed, how can you not love them eh. Thanks for the info. I've never actually worked with one, but definitely would make me consider them as a next horse. Thanks again for the info.

This is old paddie, grumpy old b**ger but brilliant in the shafts.

This is young paddie and old paddie, one is missing his feathers as they tended to get burnt off stupidly easierly. Young paddie ended up hitting 16.1hh and old was 15.3hh
