Our Gypsy Horse Program
Our Gypsy horses have been selected only from the best available stock. Our prime selection factors are genetics, health, and temperament first, then conformity, size, and color. Each of our horses are treated as family members and we give as much attention to each horse that we are able. We purposely keep the number of yearly breeding down to the size we can handle, giving each foal the amount of time it takes to produce a gypsy horse that is fully family integrated, this is something that cannot be provided by a large breeder, that just pumps out the horses. If you are looking for a family oriented gypsy horse, please take the time to visit a small dedicated breeder and see the difference in the horses for yourself.
Each of our foals are imprinted at birth and handled daily to ensure a close human bonding, I literally become the second mom to the foals. Every horse goes through and continuous bonding and training process starting as foals, each going through kindergarten training, de-sensitizing, loading, lifting of feet, crossing tarps and bridges, having their heads covered, clipping, and patience, daily interacting with them to maintain the connection.
· At year old they are taught the basics, of patience, attention, respect, ground training, and very light round pen work.
· As they reach two years old, they are started on driving training.
· After they reach the age of three they are scheduled for saddle training.
We believe Gypsy horses are healthier fed on a natural diet of grass and grass hay, with a minimal amount of supplements and grains,
for slower growth leading to healthier horse with stronger bones, muscles, and joints.
We are members of the GHA and working the members to advance the Gypsy horse breed in quality, recognition, and status. We operate a small Gypsy horse farm about 30 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah with enough room for the horses to stretch out, or to have their own quiet space. Our goal is to become the premier breeder at providing the best traditional Gypsy Vanner horses available at a fair price.
We welcome and encourage all visitors, please call to make arrangements for your visit.
2013 Cooper, a beautiful, well proportioned silver bay colt., arrived on 4/6/2013, right on his schedule, a little late on our schedule. Ginger, Karen, and Cooper are doing well after a good night sleep. Cooper looks very similar to Arianna and Boomer and hopefully his personality is the same as well.
We want to thank Karen for her dedicated work in taking care of Ginger and welcoming Cooper to the world. Karen has done a fabulous job with Ginger, and it is plain to see, they have built a mutual trust in each other.
Broghan, our 6 year old Silver Dapple -Gypsy Stallion
Broghan has been a wonderful stallion, each and every foal he has put on the ground has been nothing less than fabulous, better than him or the Dams, this separates the really great stallions, from the rest of them
This is planned to be the last year for breeding Broghan, he is scheduled to be gelded after this breeding season, and will be devoting his time to pleasure driving and riding.
This spring will be the ”Last call” for cooled semen or live cover, there will be limited frozen semen available.
2013 Heart Breaker, a fantastic, beautiful, well proportioned chestnut foal (possible silver chestnut) colt, arrived on 4/24/2013. He took almost a year (364 days) to decide to come out and see what’s happening on the outside.
Breaker arrived with long legs with heavy bones and feather, two very blue eyes, a deep red tail, a medicine hat, eyeliner, and a red-frosty chest.
Breaker is one day old in this picture and is shown with his Mom Bandy standing with him. This colt is also mostly legs, as he will also be a tall boy.
2013 Dartanyon, a beautiful, well proportioned silver dapple colt, arrived on 4/14/2013.
Baby D is one week old in this picture and is shown with his Mom (Shades of Envy) standing behind him at Golden Oak Gypsy Horse.
Lacey and Envy have a great working relationship and they are both taking great care of Baby D.
