Flynt Hylls Gypsy Horses is celebrating TEN YEARS of involvement with these beautiful and majestic horses. We could not imagine our lives without them, and plan on expanding our farm and operations in the future. Watch our website for updates and details.
It takes a champion horse to make a champion team!
Flynt Hylls Gypsy Horses continues to be committed to breeding a true proper and TRADITIONAL cob or vanner (as they are more commonly known in the US). You won't find "the latest fad or fashion horse" on our farm, just true to type tradition.
Flynn is the basis of our breeding program, and a champion he is! Flynn has numerous show ring wins to his name including SEVERAL Champion Stallion and Supreme Grand Champion Gypsy Vanner/Horse. He has been a superb choice as a herd sire.
Flynn continues to be one of the broadest, best boned Gypsies in the US. He has proven himself an amazing horse, competing and winning in all competitions; halter, driving, western pleasure, dressage, even race events! I couldn't imagine a better choice for a stallion. Flynn is DNA confirmed bloodlines to include Watson's Old Horse AKA Lad, and the Producer.
Our mares have a nice range of size and abilities. Fee Bee and Glory are bigger boned and shorter; the more traditional body types. Fee Bee is proving herself in her own rite as a performance horse, doing very well in halter and saddle classes. She is a very bold and forward mare, and one of the most affectionate we own. Fee Bee stands 14.1 hands and has more mane than I've seen on any mare.
Glory came to us in the summer of 2014. She is a daughter of Syd's Good Stallion aka the Frainey Horse; good "old" bloodlines. She has been a broodmare all her life, but is a very sweet, quiet girl. She stands her ground around the other mares, but she doesn't cause trouble. And she is great with the other babies. Glory stands 13.2 hands with abundant hair.
Flash is an older mare and the herd matriarch. She stays on the farm and makes babies, but she enjoys her one-on-one time and grooming sessions. Her babies from Flynn have been some of the best put on the ground anywhere, and they seem to be getting better every year. Per DNA comparisons, Flash appears to be from the Lion King and Rose bloodlines. Wow!!!
Tribecca is a bit more feminine but still a very nice, proper mare. To her credit, Becca is currently being used as a Dressage lesson horse by a local barn. They borrowed her for a week long camp and fell in love with her! Tribecca has one of the prettiest heads and softest eye I've seen on a Gypsy and she passes this on to all of her foals. We have tried to do DNA searches for her lineage and keep coming up short. While we may not know much of her bloodlines, what we do know is it is rare, which means you won't be "accidentally" inbreeding with any of Tribecca's offspring!
Rosie is a daughter of the Sundance Kid, acquired while in Tennessee. Rosie is bay and white and BIG!. She is 15.2 hands and as broad as she is tall! She has really filled out this last year and is truly a breathtaking site. We will have Rosie x Flynn offspring available for sale.
Serenity (Saoirse X Flash of Gold), a very flashy red and white mare, comes to us from our friends at TNT Gypsy farms. She is the traditional size, about 14.2 hands, and very easy going. Serenity will receive saddle and driving training in 2015, and will be introduced into our breeding program with a confirmed foal for 2016.
Lindi, a youngster of only two, came to us from our friends at Chocolate Horse Farms. Lindi is a Falcon daughter, and our second buckskin. When old enough we will put her under saddle and start driving training as well, then introduce her to our breeding program.
Emma Peel comes to us from our friends at Bandera Gypsy Horses in Florida. She is a big, solid mare with a beautiful, delicate head. Her babies by Flynn should be HUGE! Emma has been bred to Flynn for a May 2017 foal. This one should be extra beautiful!
Avondale is a daughter of SD Cotton Eyed Joe, grandaughter of SD Wooly Mammoth. At just over one year old she is very long-legged and sweet, sweet, sweet! She has her mother's beautiful face. When old enough she will be put under saddle, then later put into the breeding program as well. With her bloodlines she should produce some amazing babies!
And, in 2014 we have acquired two new stallion prospects. One from our own breeding program, Flynt Hylls Gypsy Dark Superstitions. He is an amazing and flashy colt, following our goals of breeding a true proper Gypsy Cob type horse. We are excited to watch him mature and develop into a stallion as amazing as his father.
Northern Lights Cosmic Cyclone aka Cy, has joined us from our friends in Ohio. Cy is a buckskin paint colt, and from one of the very few horses of color in the US that ALSO possess our requirements of a traditional cob conformation. Before acquiring Cy we searched across the US and found only a small handful of stallions of color that met our high standards. Cy should finish around 14.2. We are excited to introduce him to our program in the years to come.
We are very pleased to boast a well-rounded herd of the highest quality Gypsy Cobs/Vanners, with a great selection of off-spring. We are sure you will find exactly what you are looking for. And, if we don't have it, we'll go to our nation-wide network of fellow Gypsy owners and breeders to help you find exactly what you are looking for.
