Gypsy Vanner Blog
Our crew did an amazing job getting the horses ready for their June Photo Shoot with Mark and Jackie Barrett.
We are very excited to introduce our three new amazing foals! Meet SWF Prince of Pearls aka Junior, SWF Briella's Blue Angel aka Ellie, and SWF First Kiss of Summer aka Bruce.
We had an amazing foaling season this year. Five fillies!! All gorgeous and most importantly, all healthy.
Our spring foals are due any minute!
Stillwater Farm was well represented in Perry this year.
Vintage Vanners has agreed to sell us their 2013 colt out of Zanna and Don King. V. V. Bacio Divino Bacio is one of those colts that just take your breath away. As a breeder we look for that special aha moment with the new babies. Bacio has that and more.
Can a winning halter horse be a winning performance horse among Gypsy Vanners? There is quite a bit of debate regarding the ideal weight of a mature Gypsy Vanner. Stillwater Farm believes the ideal weight is determined by the horse's discipline and type. A big heavy traditional broodmare maintains a different weight than a working performance Gypsy Vanner. We have both here at the farm. But we breed a more modern performance Gypsy Vanner. They need to move!
We are thrilled with our new foal crop! Three gorgeous fillies and one handsome colt are the newcomers to Stillwater Farm.
Plans have been finalized and now we start our breeding season.
