Gypsy Vanners

Last year, on my birthday, I treated myself to visting a horse farm here in Virginia. They have Gypsy Vanners! They shipped them here from Ireland. I am a big fan of draft horses in general but these...!!! I love seeing these gentle giants and I can only imagine riding a Gypsy!

I love large, gentle horses too. What I'd love most of all is to watch them working in the fields instead of tractors :-)

I got to see some huge draft horses working in fields in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Amish use the draft horses to farm. It was so amazing to see teenage Amish boys managing a team of 6 draft horses on their own.
