Step into a captivating world where artistry meets equestrian charm, and passion weaves its way through every tale. Join me as I embark on an extraordinary adventure, sharing my love for these majestic creatures and unveiling a shop dedicated to their enchanting presence. Prepare to be spellbound by the Gypsy Horse brand and its collection of delightful gifts and treasures that celebrate the beauty of this extraordinary breed.


 


The Beginnings of a Love Affair


In the late 80s, amidst my quest for Appaloosa Draft crosses, fate intervened. A horse caught my attention, a Tinker with a language all its own. Its stunning snowflake Appaloosa pattern, luxurious leg hair rivaling the Budweiser Clydesdales, left me in awe. The desire to own one burned brightly within me, and it wasn’t until the late 90s that I stumbled upon a website that unveiled the splendor of Pinto Gypsy Vanners in the United States. Black Shire Forest Gypsy Horses, with their resplendent beauty, captured my heart completely. Thus began my extraordinary journey.


 


Finding My Tribe


Hair care, temperament, feeding—every detail mattered as I delved deeper into the world of Gypsy Vanners. Eager to connect with fellow enthusiasts, I immersed myself in groups, forums, and websites. Finding my tribe was a serendipitous moment, a culmination of shared passion and profound knowledge. Surrounded by like-minded souls, I knew I had discovered my community.


 


A Feathered Horse Dream Come True


With prices beyond my reach, I yearned for a Gypsy Vanner of my own. In 2004, I took the leap and purchased the first pick of a group of mares, opting for an in-utero foal from a stunning Gypsy Stallion named Jack Flash. My favorite mare was Midnight. The anticipation and excitement were palpable as I expressed my whimsical dream: a small, black and white pinto filly from Midnight. The owner was sure it would never happen, she had only 15 plus hand foals, and never pinto. April came along as did the first foal I had my pick from. It was a beautiful buckskin colt out of Midnight's full sister! But against odds I held off, waiting for that certain mare to foal.


 

A Magical Bond Named Saoirse


As May unfolded, the phone call I had been eagerly awaiting finally came. Midnight had given birth, and to my delight, a healthy, tiny black and white filly graced the world. Tears of joy streamed down my face; Saoirse, as I had already named her, was mine. From South Dakota to Michigan, we brought her home, and the moment she stepped off the trailer, our hearts were forever captivated. Our love affair with Saoirse and the Gypsy Vanner breed had just begun.

 


From National Champions to Gypsy Horse Brand


For 14 remarkable years, we embarked on a journey showcasing our Gypsy Vanners across the Midwest, achieving the prestigious title of National Champions. Sharing them with public everywhere we went, through 4H, Draft, Breed, and Open Shows. Yet, amidst our triumphs, I noticed a void in the Gypsy Horse world. While other breeds had an array of merchandise celebrating their unique traits, the Gypsy Vanner breed lacked representation. This realization ignited a spark within me—to fill this void and offer enthusiasts and breeders alike a range of items that truly captured the essence of Gypsy Vanners.

After 20+ years of passion and dedication, I am thrilled to unveil my art shop, a treasure trove of Gypsy Horse brand items. Embracing the Gypsy side of these enchanting horses, each creation showcases the breed’s essence with grace and style. From exquisite illustrations and graphics to an array of charming gifts and presents, my aim is to share the magic of Gypsy Vanners with all who desire it.
