About Us
Scotty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Scotty
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gypsy Vanner, Welsh Pony
Home: Northern California
   Scotty 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.
