I'm still on my journey to figure out what kind of animals I'm wanting on our farm. So yesterday, I went to visit a friend who has Gypsy Vanner Horses. (This is not a picture of her horse. It's a picture I took off the net. I couldn't get a good picture of her horses because of the weather and it just being dreary.)
I am not planning on buying these horses anytime soon. The reason is that they are EXPENSIVE!!!!!! My friend's horses, that she sells, start at $5000 and they go up from there. And I mean way up! These horses have many great things about them. They're smaller in size than most draft type horses, they have very gentle personalities, and they are pretty. But, I can't see myself paying that much for these horses just so I can put them on my farm. I can just imagine how pretty all that hair would be covered in mud and burrs. lol.
So as of right now, I'll stick with the horses that we have already here. They aren't exactly what I want, but they will work for now.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, exploring the possibilities......NEXT!
