The History on the Gypsy Beauties
The earliest records of multi-colored horses (such as the gypsy horse) are from cave drawings estimated to be approximately 20,000 years old. In past times, such multi-colored horses were believed to be omens of good fortune.
The association of the Rom with horses is almost legendary. By tradition, the gypsy horse is involved in each and every aspect of family life...faithfully pulling the vardo by day, yet sufficiently amenable and patient to be the gentle mount of gypsy children when the day is done. Often staked out alongside the road with the family wagon in all types of weather when not "on the move," the gypsy horse lives and thrives for the most part by partaking of the grasses which happen to be growing where it is tethered. The heartiness and exceptional disposition of the gypsy horse is its trademark and such an animal is generally considered to be cold-blooded, incredibly adaptable from the moment of birth.Hi am Twilight and thank you for reading please vote for me for March HOTM ,heres a vote for you too

Importation
We have 3 Gypsy horses that were imported from England. April is from Darlington, England. I just posted our stallion, Prince Aidan Hawke, who was born on the farm. His dam is April. If you want to see more of our Gypsies, go to www.shadowhawkegypsies.com in about 2 weeks. I'm working on the site right now and should be finished soon.

Come visit me, April Love Hawke & Prince Aidan Hawke.

Gypsy Prices
A Gypsy foal will cost anywhere from $5000 up to $10,000. As they grow, so does their price. A brood mare can cost up to and over $22,500. A Stallion will sell for $35,000 to over $50,000 depending on their sire. They are a very expensive breed to purchase. When I imported my first two Gypsies, the prices were lower. Over the years the cost of importation fees and boarding in quarantine, etc., has increased their value.
Be careful of what you buy. People are cross breeding and trying to sell the foals as Gypsies. Always ask for papers to prove parentage or proof that it is a purebred Gypsy Horse. If you are looking for a Drum Horse, it has to have Gypsy in it's pedigree. To check breed standards, you can go to the web sites for the Gypsy Cob Society, Gypsy Cob & Drum Horse Association, Gypsy Vanner Society, American Drum Horse Association or the American Gypsy Horse Breed Association.

Vanners?
Vanners is a nickname given to Gypsy horses by a man living in FL. He imported Gypsy horses and decided to call them Vanners. The rest of us call them Gypsy horses or Gypsy Cobs. We raise and breed Gyspy Cobs. We have 4 mares and a 3 year old stallion named Prince Aidan Hawke. If anyone would like to get in touch with us to come see our Gypsies, email me at qhawke@aol.com. We love to show off our Gypsy horses and they love the attention. IT's a great breed for a sane, sound and gentle horse. I wouldn't own any other breed horse again, and trust me, I've owned a lot of breeds in the past.
Diane
