I didn't really know much about the horses beyond that though. I bought a Groupon to take a tour at a Gypsy Vanner horse farm when we first came to The Villages. We kept saying we were going to go and ended up doing other things instead. So we didn't actually end up doing the tour until the day before we headed out. It was well worth making sure we did do it while up this way!
We learned so many interesting things about the people who owned this beautiful horse farm, and the story on how the Gypsy Vanner horse made its way to our country. You can read about it at their website here: Gypsy Gold. If you get a chance to go and visit, we highly recommend it.
