With each match we put together, we expect nothing but perfection a year later with the birth of the foal.
The Gypsy people have raised this horse for a special purpose, to pull their caravans, their works of art that they live in. These caravans would have every treasure that they would own in it, including their family. These horses must be a trusted part of the family, and because of this, their horse would become a great source of pride for them.
WillowWind Stable has been raising Gypsy Vanners that the Gypsy people would be proud to own since 1999.
The Traveller’s Horse, aka Gypsy Vanner, Gypsy Cob, Irish Cob, was created in Ireland up to 200 yrs ago. The Traveller people would cross heavy pony breeds with the Shire and or Clydesdale. The process of creating 15 hand heavy cob with a small head and ear, feather, and heavy bone took many decades of skillful breeding. The Travellers horse is exquisite all on its own.
The caravan, much like the horse, was a priceless piece of art that was taken care of with love. Each caravan was unique to the family.
Please come and share with us the joy of the Gypsy Vanner Horse.
Our goal is to make those Gypsy families proud of what we produce from our small herd here in Michigan.
