<strong>Shey</strong>

Shey is a 17 yr. old Gypsy Vanner.  Shey’s father was the first Vanner stallion in the country.  Shey was a brood mare at Brio Vanner’s & had three babies. They graciously donated Shey to SRA. An appraised value of $20,000. History: Through selective breeding over more than 100 years, Gypsy men & their families in England & Ireland created this breed of horses.  Their goal was to create a unique draft type horse that could pull their caravans in fancy fashion, yet was docile enough to be handled by their children.  Some of the features of a Gypsy are the Black & White coloring, stand around 14.3 hands, an arched crown neck, smaller ears that curve inward, round heavy chest, thick boned legs with feathers.  The feathers make them look as if they fly when they run.  The Gypsy also will have a short back & a very well rounded hindquarter, & crease down the center of the hindquarter that is called “Apple Butt.”
