Gentle Gypsies is dedicated to producing gypsy vanners with gentle and willing temperaments, and ideal conformation. We know that it takes 2 to make a foal, and genetics are 50/50 , so we ensure our mares are just as high a quality as our stallions. We are highly selective in what gypsies we add to our program and never settle.

This family is as cute as can be. Salem still gets to hang out with his mom and new sister out in the pasture every day. He is so gorgeous. However takes him home is going to be so lucky.

Amazing news!!! Since Tweetie is such a great mom, I thought I'd reach out to the community to see if there were any orphan foals in need and I found one! We got the foal over that day and attempted to graph her on to Tweetie, and to everyone's pleasure it was an instant success! She loves her new baby and the filly is doing much better mentally and physically now that she has a mom. She lost her mom at only a few days old and hadn't been doing well. Now she is bright, alert, happy, and packing on the pounds.
Salem isn't so sure about this girl coming in and stealing his mom, but Tweetie still watches over him and considers both of them her foals. This mare is worth her weight in gold.

Poor Salem is having a hard time, he had milk coming out of his nose, so we took him to the CSU Vet Teaching Hospital. After running some tests and using different imaging methods we found that his nursing technique wasn't quite right, causing him to get milk into his lungs. So we have taken him off of his mother, and put him in an adjacent stall and removed some of the boards so he can still see his mom whenever he wants. But can't nurse from her. He'll be getting a mare's milk replacer for another couple months until he is fully switched over to hay and equine junior feed.
The doctor at the hospital said he gets a gold medal for best foal she's ever worked with and the students all fell in love. It's hard not to with this sweet boy.

Say hello to GGV Stray Cat Strut! This handsome colt came into the world at 3:30am May 24. He is so handsome and soooo sweet. He had a rough start though. It took him a week to figure out the whole "nursing" business. But thanks to Charleen's quick response and many sleepless nights, he is now nursing like a pro and 100% healthy. We will share more pictures soon.
