Our Little Piece of Heaven

As a child, I had always wanted a horse. We lived in a small town and there were city codes that prevented people from having horses within city limits. There were no stables close for me to visit or for me to board a horse, so I just had to keep on dreaming..

Back in the day, we would look through the Sears Roebuck catalog to let Santa know what we wanted him to bring us for Christmas.  My friends would ask for Barbie dolls, clothes to dress them, and jewelry.  I would ask for horse statues, cowgirl hats, boots and broomstick horses. 

As time passed, I realized that owning a horse was not going to be possible.  The next best thing was for me was to visit horses that some of my friends owned when I had the opportunity.  Although it was not often, I was able to be around them on occasion. 

Life went on, I graduated from high school, went off to college, came back to the town I had grown up in, got married, had children and worked on and off. As the children grew up and left home, I had a new mission.  I wanted a farm!

My husband could not understand why on earth I would want to live on a farm.  We, (should I say, “I”) looked for years to find property close to my husband’s work.  Finally, I found 100 acres that we were going to make an offer on.  The day we were going to make the offer, it was taken off the market.  Although we were disappointed, I was somewhat relieved.  There was something about this property that I could never get out of my mind.  The decision was made that day (in my mind) that the “looking” was over.  This is the place we needed to grow old on, have family gatherings and make new memories with special friends.  We purchased the property in 2004.  We built our home several years later….then my dream came true!

In 2010, my husband surprised me with a Gypsy Vanner colt from Freelands Gypsy Horses in El Dorado, Arkansas.  Freeland’s Rolling Thunder (Thunder) was such a beautiful colt.   Later, that same season, he worked his magic again and surprised me with Freeland’s Royal Ace of Spades (Ace), another handsome colt.  He was hooked…..and so was I.  During the 2011 foaling season, we purchased a lovely filly.  Freeland’s Gypsy Jubilee (Jubilee) came to our farm in September 2011. In 2012 we purchased 2 beautiful fillies.  Freeland’s Windswept Fantasy (Fancy) and Freeland’s Mardi Gras Princess (Mardi Gras). They joined the herd in September 2012.  Freelands Miss Liberty and Freelands Midnite Ryder came to live with us in 2013 and this year Freelands Black Velvet joined our family.

Needless to say, we are Freeland Gypsy Horse lovers.  Freeland’s Gypsy Horses are handled from birth and are some of the best the breed has to offer.  The bloodlines are exceptional and the socialization they receive is unbelievable.  If you are a Gypsy Horse lover, visit their website to enjoy foaling replays, baby school videos and live cams of the beautiful horses they have on their farm. 

Our barn, Gypsy V Stables, is located on 85 acres in the rolling mountains of West Virginia.   

We invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy the view..
