Talking I'm flying right now. This is amazing!

Feel free to skip this story part:

Sammy has found a home 4 hours from me. He will be going to his new home as soon as the passes clear. I'm so happy about this but I will miss him.

As many of you know I was looking for my second perfect horse well before Sammy. When Sammy was dropped with me I was struggling to keep my head above water and after figuring out to float and build back what I had lost I decided it was time to sell him and start looking for that dream horse.

I've always wanted a gypsy but because for some reason us Americas think they fart fairy dust I had dreams but not expectations of owning one. Long story short within the past week of solidifying Sammy's home and slowly hunting for another horse, riding others, and just looking around it came to my attention a local breeder of Gypsies was downsizing their herd and retiring from breeding.

Long story short after looking at finances, finishing balances, and calling my personal banker about the money I had set aside for just this occasion we decided I had enough for her and would still come out on top of my budget after purchase. I bought Legacy last night after meeting and playing with her this weekend. She's a Gypsy drum 4 year old, broke to ride, ready for show, trained in halter, started in dressage and so amazingly smooth to ride. She's registered Gypsy Vanner and Gypsy Cob. I can register her Gypsy Drum if I want but then I can't do Pinto and they just excepted Vanners so I'm going to register her Pinto for 2011 so I can do the shows. Her mom is a 16.1 Clyde and her dad is a 15.3 Gypsy Vanner. She has 2 blue eyes with white lashes! I pick her up tomorrow afternoon and I'm going to get very little sleep tonight.

She's currently a little butt high at 15.3 at the butt and 15.2 at the front but she should top out around 16-16.1 when she's done.

Here's some pictures of her from baby to now off her site. More of course when she comes in. I'm still swimming this was so fast but I'm not nervous and I know I made the right decision.

Wow she is beautiful!!! Love her eyes, she also has nice extensions in the second last pic good luck with her

GORGEOUS! I also have the pleasure of riding a gypsy. They are so smart and just breath taking! Good luck with her, she's beautiful

Word of advice: check her feathers every so often. Glen (the gypsy I ride/show) has a spot on his feathers and they have to be treated with some kind of ointment.

Her feathers will be cleaned weekly with my Clyde mare. She gets itchy and the dry skin they can get along with scratches can get pretty nasty if not treated at least weekly. I just read that head and shoulders works wonders on dry skin and scratches for drafts. If I had known that last year I wouldn't have shaved off Caleigh's feathers this year. They're almost back and then I'll have two beautiful fluffy creatures!

Wow you are so lucky! I have the opportunity to do a breeding to a Gypsy Vanner stallion with my Haflinger mare. I'm bitting my nails on whether I should or not. I would love to own one.
