Lilly is probably one of the best mares Gypsy MVP has ever had. Lilly is taller than most which is likable for excelling in events. Also her bloodlines are way over the top. She is only meant for the most serious breeders in the world as she is world class. She is currently being readied by our Trainer Morgan for the show ring. Possible for Sale by Private Treaty. She is Tobiano: Homozygous (TT) and Red Factor: Heterozygous (Ee) Black based horse with a recessive copy of the red gene.
DRAGONFIRE: Gypsy MVP is proud to offer Dragonfire for consideration at this time. A phenomenal palomino and white gypsy vanner stallion, he stands over 15h., with the power and presence of Prince Charming. His sire, Romeo is an American icon. Dragonfire is “Magic in motion” with his flowing hair and floating movement. This gypsy vanner produces big beautiful foals with rich colors. As his training continues, he is being ridden both English and Western. He is very willing and is excelling in both disciplines. What an amazing fellow. Here is a chance to make some history. Don’t wait too long.
We received an email inquiry about miniature Gypsy Vanner horses the other day. I thought I would share with you both the email and the response by Anne Beven of Gypsy MVP UK
I am e-mailing you both in the US and the UK hoping maybe you can work together and help me out. I am looking to get into breeding miniature gypsy horses, and I want a tiny, well built, heavy feathered stallion to be the foundation of my program. I am looking for something to stay around 10-11hh (or smaller, if you can find one!) quality bred. Good example of what I am looking for is the stallion Silver Dollar -
Please let me know if you have anything available in the US, or find anything in the UK. I am looking for reasonably priced being that I know import fees are around $10,000 for a colt, and around $15-16,000 for a stallion in addition to their purchase price.
I will also be looking for tiny mares to add to my program down the road, please keep me in mind if you happen to get any.
First off, I need you to know that these smaller horses are not true to the Gypsy tradition given that they should be able to pull a Gypsy Wagon for miles and miles, they are not going to be able to do this, as children’s ponies. People in the UK shy away from them as they want horses/ponies to do a job.
Having said this I can see where you are coming from , people are breeding dogs you can put in tea cups , I have often thought there would be a place for them, the problem is the cost, last year at Appleby there was a small stallion with heavy feather -but obviously with welsh pony breeding. They wanted £45,000 for him, people were just laughing and walked away, I don’t know how to advise you as they are all asking stupid prices at the moment! If money is no object and you want to try the market in the US go for it but I would be careful and do much homework before you invest in this. I wish you the very best and am here to help if you need me .
Warm regards Anne

Early hours Monday morning our home bred Gypsy Vanner filly Jofranka ( Frankie ) gave birth to a little filly onto English pasture , we had spent many days looking out for the birth as all was in place , slack rear end and bagging up of the mare , we did think about bringing mum in as this was her first foal plus there were others in the field , in fact Frankies mum with a week old foal , and the sire to both babies .
For now we are calling new baby Kizzy as it is a Gypsy girls name .
How confused can a little Gypsy Vanner foal be ? so far she has tried to suckle her aunt , her dad , and my husband , i dont know who was more in shock , she is a very sweet baby , all of a wobble unlike her brother a fab colt who is proving to be a real boy , from day one he was an explorer causing his mother to have many kittens each time he went off to explore , Kizzy goes off to explore without her mother knowing she has gone , she then gets lost and cries , all come to her aid ,her mother , her aunt, and her father , gypsy Vanners are a special breed , they look after their own , never in all my years of breeding have i been able to have foals born out in the field with mum and dad , aunt , baby brother and all . Please follow my post as i have much more to share , and please go and take a good look at the GYPSY MVP site , so many great horses to share with you , and a friendly team second to none .
