Our mission is to create magnificent gentle and just the right size Grand Vanners. The Shires have a wonderful disposition and are beautiful but they are tall and hard to get on without a tailgate. The Gypsy Vanners also have a wonderful disposition and are beautiful but they are small and many people do not feel comfortable riding them.
To get to the ultimate goal of our Grand Vanners we will start with crossing our Shires with Gypsy Vanners to produce our Foundation Grand Vanners (FGV) which also meets the IDHA definition of a Drum Horse.... (read more) We will take the best of our FGV and cross them back to the best of our Irish Cobs / Gypsy Vanners. These crosses will create larger horses with excellent conformation and dispositions that match the Gypsy Vanner breed standards and they will be over 15.2 HH.
