Gypsy Vanner Horse!!
Imported from England!!
This guy is it! His dad, Tubbs,
is a son of the legendary "Shogun Horse”!!
imported from Michael Vines in England
with his dam, Dorian, by Jeff Bartko of
Black Forest Shires & Gypsy Horses
Reilly's sire, is 14.3 hands. Reilly was taller than his siblings, so heading
more towards his dad's height. He was born in England and imported with
his dam as a 4-month-old colt.

Tubbs leaves quality in his
offspring. He's tested and confirmed
homozygous for the pinto, so all of his foals are pinto, no matter what color
the mare is. He's not a little guy, standing around 14.3 hands, and as
stout as you can find in a gypsy cob.
We expect the same from Reilly.
Tubbs, is a son of the
legendary "Shogun Horse", who is sired by the original Old Kent Horse , and is a proven stallion, sire of many
nice foals. He's a big boy, with tons of hair and lots of quality for a big
horse. He's got a gorgeous head (and neck!) for a larger-sized cob too,
what a classic looking boy this guy is.
Now that is awesome! Look at the feather on Shogun, it's no wonder he is the sire of many well now winners.

DORIAN: Beautiful imported Registered
Blue and White Gypsy Cob mare of excellent quality and breeding from Michael
Vines stables in England. Perfectly built, silky feather and hair. Refined head
with tippy ears and intelligent, large eye. Everything the discriminating
breeder looks for in a gypsy mare and oh-that-beautiful-color!.

Couple more pics of Dorian, Reilly’s dam,
Reilly as a yearling before he made his journey all the way up from Texas. He has exceptional temperament. No problem to catch him, lead him, do his feet, and was a sweet heart to start under saddle.
Reilly has brown eyes. Mom is a blue and white mare; she is a very good quality
Reilly's second day under saddle in 2009.
Update now in 2013 and Reilly is so calm, his first ride out this spring and we had to push him to get him to keep up with the other horses. He really does not have a care in the world.
Very typical Gypsy trust and extremely smooth trot for a horse his size. Quite a nice surprise!
He takes everything totally in stride. Never balks, very trusting and willing. The girl riding in this picture had only ridden a dozen times before taking him on these trails!
