The Gypsy Vanner Horse is a new and rare breed here in the U.S., but for the Gypsies of Ireland this is the ideal horse. The Gypsy people have selectively bred these horses for many years to pull wagons and carry their children as they travel.
The Gypsy Vanner Horse was first brought to the United States by Dennis and Cindy Thompson. In 1996 the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society was started and along with it the breed standard was set.
Gypsy Vanner's are thought to be descended from a combination of Shires, Clydesdales, Friesians, and Dale Ponies. They are a beautiful horse that stands out due to their long flowing manes and tails, as well as the "feathers" on their legs. There are four colors know as the breed standard: Piebald(black & white), Skewbald(red or brown & white), Blagdon(solid color with splashes of white), and Odd Color(any other color). They have a broad chest, heavy hips, and a short back. The typical Gypsy Vanner measures between 14 - 17 hands high. Most importantly though is their generally docile and gentle attitudes. They are known for their sweet and loving nature.
The first time I worked with a Gypsy Horse I fell completely in love and given the chance I know you will too!
The goal here at White Bison Farm is to deliver "true to breed" foals that have been imprinted at birth and worked with on a daily basis. The foals will be started in their training using the Clinton Anderson Method of horse training. Foals will be ready to leave when they are weaned at about 4 - 6 months of age. By the time they leave our home we want them well on their way to becoming "productive horses", meaning they will have a good background into ground work, spooky objects, trailering, tying, leading, and will be able to have a vet check and farrier work without any mishap. We believe there is a perfect horse out there for almost everyone, let us see if your perfect horse is a Gypsy Vanner.
Payment plans are available for all Gypsy Vanner Horses. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding the payment plans, our horses, or the breed in general. We LOVE to talk about horses!
* All of our Gypsy Horses have been tested and are negative for PSSM *
The new man on the block!! Silky Boy Jr. is not only a perfect example of the Gypsy breed, but he also has the lineage to back him up. His sire is the world re-known" Silky Boy" out of "Lenny's Horse" and his dam is "Beauty" a mare from the great Tom Price with lineage back to The Lion King, Sid's Good Pony, and Nobby.
Both his sire and dam are known for their conformation, wonderful disposition, and feathers galore and have been featured on multiple magazine covers over the years.
Silky Boy Jr. is already proving that he is going to follow in their footsteps. His conformation is outstanding with the perfect "gypsy" butt, a magnificent neck and shoulders, and just the most perfect "gypsy" head. Not to mention his fantastic feathering and wonderful mane and tail.
We call him Tareck meaning "he who navigates successfully through life". He is registered with the GVHS (GV02247F1) and the GHA (GHA00367)
His stud fee is $3000. In the beginning of each year we offer a early bird special and give a discounted stud fee. Reserve your breeding for the following year and lock in your discounted price.
At this time we only offer live cover.

BH Shane joined us this past winter and celebrated his first birthday last month. He is a grandson of the famous "Boss" and is beautiful silver dapple!
We are very excited to have been blessed with another fantastic example of the Gypsy Horse.
We have nickamed him "Doubloon" after the spanish gold coin and he is shedding out to resemble just that! He has been blessed with some adorable dapples, a friendly and loving attitude, and a "what's next" outlook to his training.
He had a very good basic understanding of groundwork when he arrived, but has continued to develop and expand his learning! We will be breeding him next year for 2014 foals and are very excited to see what he can produce. Along with breeding, he is also going to be trained to ride just like the majority of our other horses!
Doubloon competed at his first show on June 8th and did FANTASTIC!!! He attened the NE Feathered Horse Classic and took home a first in his yearling colt halter class.
With the combination of both Silky Boy Jr. and BH Shane, we are hoping to produce a beautiful variety of foals!

Ailish is registered with the GVHS and the GHA. She has some of the best bloodlines available with both The Lion King and The Gypsy King in her lineage. Ailish is a complete sweetheart and easily wins over anyone she meets. She is eager to please and wants nothing more then to hang out with you and have your attention.
Ailish is one of our top riding mares - she started riding at two years old and is now doing fantastic. She loves to go out and "explore" and true to the Gypsy form - she is always calm, relaxed, and attentive! We couldn't have asked for a better mare to start our breeding program and she is never leaving our family!
Ailish is everything we could hope for and we are blessed to have her!!!
Ailish is bred to Silky Boy Junior for a August 2012 foal.

My Sweet Teagan is another example of the sweet temperment, gentle attitude, and relaxed manner that these Gypsy Vanner's portray. Conformation is key in the gypsy horse breed and Teagan has it all: a beautiful head that leads into a perfect neck and shoulders, not to mention her butt. She has a mane that reachs well past her knees, a tail that hits the ground, and magnificent feathering. Teagan has a completely different set of bloodlines then our lovely Ailish. Teagan carries the bloodlines of Sids Good Stallion. Along with the different bloodlines, Teagan is heterozygous for both the tobiano and the dark gene, allowing her to have foals with diverse coloring and patterns.
Teagan is triple registered with the Gypsy Horse Registry of America A00000187, with the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society GV02090F1 and the Gypsy Horse Association GHA00746!
Teagan is bred to Sir Royal Excalibur of Gypsy Dance Ranch in Minnesota and we are all hoping for a beautiful silver dapple foal next spring!

Dream is a black sabino blagdon mare with the same loveable personality that we have come to expect with our Gypsy Horses. She is expected to mature 14.1hh and is absolutely breathtaking to look at. Her unique coloring is a remarkable transformation from spring coat to winter coat color. She is a blue/grey color in the spring and her coat has darkened now with the addition of her winter coat, but she is still a very beautiful silver/black color.
Dream was imported from the Tom Price herd and she carries some phenomenal bloodlines with Simon, Bob the Blagdon, Eddie's Old Horse, and Bullseye just to name a few. Most importantly though is her fantastic conformation and gentle, loving attitude.
As with all of our Gypsies, she loves attention and is completely unfazed by the everyday activities here on our farm. From running boys, barking dogs, odd looking bison, and very noisy pigs, Dream just takes it all in stride.
We have been blessed with many top-of-the-line Gypsy Horses and Tomorrow's Dream is no exception!
Dream is double registered with both the GVHS and GHA!

She is heterozygous for the polygenic sabino gene.
Crystal is a piebald Gypsy mare with a "uncanny" resemblance to our Teagan. She is a nine year old broodmare that has produced a couple fillies who have gone on to show ring and are winning championships. Her latest filly, Ginger, just won two ribbons at the NE Feathered Horse Classic in June!
Crystal is full of feather, has a very nice conformation, and is completely peaceful! We are very fortunate to have been able to add her to our beautiful Gypys mares. She is bred to our very own Silky Boy Jr. for a 2013 foal. Due to the genetics of these two horses, the foal will be a piebald (black & white) and is for sale.
Crystal is foundation bred and was imported from Europe.
