I think the Gypsy breed is so beautiful. I just can't imagine keeping their feathering on their legs clean and combed out. Thank you for sharing the photos!

Oh, I love the Gypsy horses, they are so gorgeous! I agree with TCavanaugh, a lot of work keeping those feathery legs clean and combed. They are beauties though!

Those are beautiful horses. And they look like they are really movin' in those pics. Interesting attire on the riders. In that 3rd pic, it looks like the gal's clothes are flying right off of her, she moving so fast.

I got to drive a Gypsy horse last summer. It was really nice.

Beautiful horses, I've always wanted one of those. Can't imagine the upkeep on the feathers though. Especially in the rain, snow, mud etc...

Wow! They are so bulky and strong, yet so graceful and beautiful, too.

You captured some gorgeous photos of them in motion.
