Summer with the 3/4 Gypsy foals

Just thought I would throw some of the pictures I took of my lovely little foals to mature in the under 13 hands tall range….I am sneaking my purebred filly (Truffles x Executive) in along with her half siblings (the 3/4 foals from Q.T. and Dolly who are daughters of Toymakker).  Q.T.’s colt has been sold and is in his new home in Montana; the two girls are planned to retain for future high quality cob pony crosses back to our new 12 hand stallion, Wyatt, for excellent 12 hand range feathered cob stock to contribute to the future of the miniature gypsy horse here in USA.

Don’t forget to click on the individual pictures for enlarged view with attached descriptions.

    Hi, I was just cruising the UK classifieds for small Gypsy cobs to get an idea of what is possible right now. Lots of people loosing their grazing or having health issues and selling. Most are too large or too poor of quality to be of use to a mini program but I found two mares, one 13.2 and the other 12.2 with really good conformation and hair. In US dollars they are asking $1914 and $2400. It is not out of the range of some partnerships. There were a couple of colts that might mature small enough but one didn’t have pics and the others were on the so small it was hard to make out details. Of course if purchasing a stallion/colt, he could be syndicated by a group of breeders pooling their money to buy him. It is kind of like buying stocks. For every share a person buys gets a breeding to one of his mares. If no one has a colt that we like for sale we could request a breeding from a stallion that we do like. Specifically to a small mare. Many of the small studs are used on larger mares and the offspring is too large for us. I
