||Seven years old|
||Gypsy Vanner, Welsh Pony|
is half Gypsy Vanner, so he is very flashy and very smart. When he
first came to California from South Carolina he was shy and a little afraid of
people. My friend and I have been working with him for several months now,
giving him lots of pats and treats and training him. He is so much more
relaxed and happy! Scotty likes to go out on the trail and isn't afraid of
sheep or water. He loves molasses cookies and being scratched below his left
ear and on his withers. He is a very special horse, and very handsome, too!
He is such a good-looking horse. He is special because his cross is unique -
I have not seen many Gypsy Vanners crossed with the Welsh. He has a wonderful
disposition and is very gentle. Gypsy Vanners were bred to be gentle. He has
the flashy Gypsy coloring, too, and their great stamina. His head is more
refined, though, like the Welsh. He's going to be a wonderful trail horse,
and he is a very fine friend.
