Date of Birth: 3/23/2009
Registered Name: SWF Puccini
We just can’t say enough about this outstanding young gelding. Puccini is out of our great foundation mare, Poppy and is sired by The King’s Good Friday, own son of the legendary Gypsy King. Beside the fact that he stands a solid 14.1hh as a yearling, Puccini has a truly great personality and superior intelligence. His movement is captivating! In the past three years of showing Gypsy Vanners, we have seen only a small handful of horses that move like Puccini. In a world where mutton withers are the conformational norm, occasionally we see a Gypsy Vanner with a strong Friesian influence. These rare individuals are what trainers refer to as “up hill”. This means their wither is much higher than their hip. Because of this, the horse’s carriage, collection and impulsion are more fluid and natural. It is a sight to behold. Simply put, Puccini is a Friesian in a Gypsy Vanner suit! Come see for yourself. Puccini is unique and talented. We are very excited about his future.
