2018 Bay Tobiano Gypsy Vanner Gelding
GFR Silver Spirit x Serenity
DNA: Kota has not been color tested since he is a gelding
Estimated Mature Height: ~13.3-14.0 hands
This is the sweetest tempered little guy who is going to be very much a one person horse. He isn't shy but he is an introvert, so he only spends time playing with a few of the fillies and will really bond with his person. He is not a leader in the herd. He isn't spooky but isn't the bold one who leads the others out of curiosity to see new things. He is more of a follower.
Kota has done a fair amount for his young age already. He has two Reserve Champion wins at gypsy breed shows. He has show points on file with GVHS. He has been to the Minnesota Horse Expo and has spent a month at a local high school horsemanship program. He came in Reserve Champion in the 2019 Year End GVHS Vanner Advantage Awards, and won a buckle and a jacket! He is very well handled and loves people and attention.
Kota is very gentle and will need to be in a herd with gentle horses. While he is young and likes to play, he grew up with fillies and doesn't play hard the way that most colts do. Kota lacks confidence, despite all his handling and would do well with natural horsemanship style training.
Kota is extremely special to me because he was very sick shortly after he was born due to a condition called neonatal isoertherolysis, which is sort of like RH Factor in humans, where his blood type didn't match mom's. He was hospitalized for 10 days at the University of Minnesota when he was a newborn and we didn't think he would make it. He pulled through and is now a very healthy boy. This should not affect his health in the future, as it no longer matters that his blood type and his mom's blood type don't match.
Kota would probably be best suited as a trail horse. Although he did fine at his show, I don't think it's where his heart is. He will do anything for her person, however.
Kota did attend one show toward his required two shows to compete at the 2020 Feathered Horse Classic Nationals.
Kota is up to date on his 2020 coggins and vaccinations and is microchipped.

Colty was the first horse that I ever bred, and was my pride and joy. I've owned him his entire life, and parting with him has not been an easy decision. However, with the gypsies now he isn't being used, so I sent him to training for a tune-up.
He spent 7 years in professional training and showing with Howard and Andi Farmer of Ohio. He showed up to second level dressage and 3' hunters, though was schooling higher.
He has been ridden sidesaddle and brideless.
He is a National Champion halter horse, the 2012 AWS Horse of the Year and Stallion of the Year, and scored an inspection score of an impressive 82.02, which gave him both Elite and Supreme status.
The first star after his name is for a Gold rated inspection score. The second is for a National title.
Once I got into gypsies, Colty sat for a few years so has recently been sent for a tune-up with a local trainer. He is currently in training.
Colty is not for beginners. He is a very powerful horse with a lot of training. He is best suited for an intermediate or better rider. He loves to jump and loves to work and loves attention. He is brave and bold and thinks he is the most important horse.
