We have a passion for the beautiful, sweet spirited breed known as the Gypsy horse…
Welcome to Gypsy Fortune Farm. We have a small farm in the beautiful historic town of Abingdon, VA. Here we produce a small number of top quality Gypsy foals.
The Gypsy Vanner is a breed of horse with its origin among the Irish Travellers or the Gypsies of the British Isles. They possess a powerful and compact build, with a short neck and back long silky main and tail with abundant feathers. The chest is broad, the hips are heavy, and the withers are round. Vanners must also have excellent endurance, and be able to go long distances without tiring.
Gypsy Vanners are also well known for a gentle, kind temperament suitable for a horse pulling a caravan and frequently around small children. Because of this, they make good riding and show horses.
I fell in love with the Gypsy horses in 1998. I began to think seriously about purchasing my first one in 2002. In 2004 I was looking to purchase a Gypsy mare. It took me three years to research and learn all about the breed and what exactly I wanted.
Finally I found the mare I was looking for. Royale Queen of Hearts, affectionately known as “Queenie” at our home.
Our mission here at Gypsy Fortune Farm is to breed to the best quality Gypsy stallions in order to produce outstanding high quality foals to carry on the tradition that the Romany people started and would be proud of what we are going to accomplish.
All of our foals are imprinted at birth and handled on a daily basis. We love and consider our horses a part of our family and it shows in each and every one.
