One of those new

longest time breeders of these incredible horses, owner Linda Brown is excited to bring her horses and her clients horses to this premier event to educate and entertain Fairgoers about this breed as well as present facts and interesting trivia about horses in general. The Gyp- sy Horses’ ridiculously long manes and tails and abundant feather as well as their quiet, calm temperament and extreme


intelligence makes them a huge crowd draw wherever they go. The breeding stock


Gypsy Horses from A Wizards Spell Ranch were imported di- rectly from the Romani Gypsy people in England whose way of life continues to this day. The Gypsy people bred these horses to pull their wagons which are their homes so a quiet horse was mandatory.

Shew is a 7-year-old, 14.3 hand bay ranch geld- ing. This is a really good gentle all-around kind of a horse that everyone from beginners to expe- rienced riders can enjoy and appreciate. He has a real good rein, stop, and back-up, and has not been spooky or shy in the pasture, on the trails, in crowds, or in the pens. This horse has no bad habits, and is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. This is a very obedient horse with excellent all-around manners, and always gives you 100% of his attention. His surroundings and other horses do not seem to distract him. This guy will be a great asset for a stable, guest ranch working ranch or family.

Flash is an 11-year-old, 14.3 hand gorgeous bay roan gelding. This is a horse with a lot of training, and is an absolute pleasure to ride. If you don’t like this horse’s ride and disposition, you need to give up. He is a gentle well broke horse that can be enjoyed by everyone from the beginner riders to the experienced riders. He is an absolute pleasure to be around, and has the nicest one-hand rein, stop, and back-up that I have seen in a long time. He has no bad habits and has not been the least bit spooky or shy. He has not gotten fresh or frisky when I have turned him out and is very comfortable in crowds, on the trail, on the ranch, and in the pens. This is a well behaved fancy horse that will be a real asset where ever he is.

Kross is a 7-year-old, 14.2 hand beautiful sorrel gelding with a good working ranch background. This is a super quiet, laid back (not lazy) horse that can be ridden and enjoyed by everyone from beginner riders to experienced riders. You can use him all week for work and let your fam- ily enjoy him on his days off. He is not the least bit spooky, and has no bad habits. He is easy to catch, load, bathe, shoe, saddle, and mount, and has not gotten fresh or frisky after I have turned him out. He has an easy, smooth neck rein, stop, and back-up, and is a relaxing pleasure to ride. This is an all-around horse that you can ride with confidence in the pasture, on the trails, in the pens, or in crowds, and not worry.
