Willowwind Stable

WillowWind Stable is the home of the famous Breyer horse, Faugh-a-Ballagh, aka, Cheesecake. He is the sire of many of our foals, yearly and has been competeing  since August, 2022.

Here at WillowWind Stable, we are dedicated to breeding quality, Proper, Gypsy Vanner Horses. With each match we put together, we expect nothing but perfection a year later with the birth of the foal.

History of the Gypsy Vanner

The history of the breed also includes the history of the people.  The Travellers of Great Britain and Ireland had the need for a stout, power-packed horse that could not only pull a caravan full of their possessions as well as their children but also be the horse that their children could play with after a long day of traveling.
