Heralding from the British Isles, the Gypsy Vanner is a carriage breed that comes in a beautiful package. With the shape and feathering of a draft horse, they are a bit fanciful in their conformation. Their long manes and tales add to their fanciful look and have made them a popular breed all over the world.The breed comes in many unique colors, but most will recognize the black and white pinto that so many come in.
The 2016 Beautiful Breeds Ornament is showcased in that signature black and white pinto and has been expertly sculpted by collector favorite, Sommer Prosser! His luxurious mane and tail are ever present and a red bow gives him a touch of holiday spirit. He stands proud and alert, with his head held high and his eyes focused, all beautiful traits of this breed.
