2013 GHRA World Show

More Photos

The Gypsy Horse Registry of America’s World Show has crowned new World Grand Champions every year for the last 5 years during the Fort Worth Stock Show, but this year was a very special year for a very special little girl and horse.

Kelly Girl and Hallie had been practicing since November for the Youth English Riding Class at the GHRA World Show. Although Hallie has been showing horses since she was 5 she had never competed in English riding classes and although Kelly Girl was 10 she had never been shown at any kind of show. Hallie and Kelly competed well in the Youth English Class the first night placing fourth and third in Youth Showmanship, but they had no idea what was to befall them in the upcoming days. Brenda reluctantly entered Kelly Girl in the Halter Mare Class after Hallie asked to show her in the class. Hallie dressed in her sparkles and bling and Kelly Girl with her amazing mane flowing stepped out into the arena amidst a myriad of oohs and aahs. With the professionalism and perfection of the professional trainers she was showing against this little 9 year old set her horse up for the three judges. The crowd roared when Hallie and Kelly Girl’s number was announced first place in 5 and Over A Mares. But that wasn’t all Hallie and Kelly Girl went back into the arena for the Senior Grand Championship Mare and again Hallie and Kelly’s number was announced for the Grand Champion Senior Mare. But that still wasn’t all!  They went back in the arena for GHRA World Grand Champion Mare and once again the magical number 561 was read and Hallie and Kelly Girl had won again!!!

4C Kelly Girl and Hallie were then presented the prestigious “Chywoon Stud Trophy” which is awarded to the Grand Champion Mare. In Chywoon’s opinion these mares are the future of the breed and the quality of America’s home bred stock. The winner is proof that a breeder understands the sense and purpose of this unique breed. What a dream come true for this little 9 year old girl and her beautiful 10 year old mare.

The next day word had spread as the stands were packed with spectators waiting to see if the 9 year old and the mare named Kelly Girl that had won Brenda’s heart in 2007 and now was winning more hearts in 2013 could continue their success. The cameras were flashing and visitors were cheering as the duo won again and again. Hallie and Kelly Girl took first place in Broken Color Mares and Youth Western Pleasure. Brenda Hearon with 4C Finn & Fable’s Feather took first place in In Hand Trail and that is a class that Brenda has never lost with a horse she has trained. Corry Hearon with yearling colt 4C Rockin’ Red Boomer placed 2nd in the 2 and Under Stallion class. 4C’s was also awarded the first annual Best Decorated Stall.

Two thousand thirteen will be a year that will not be easily forgotten for 4C’s Gypsy Horses and little Hallie Hearon!!

We love parades at 4C’s so when we were invited we jumped at the chance to participate in the Mustang Western Days Parade. This Parade and Stampede is held each year on the first full weekend following Labor Day. Crowd size is estimated at 30,000 due to the many events and attractions bringing in visitors. This is a large parade with over 150 entries. 4C’s was represented in the parade by CDF Heza Corker driven by Corry, with Ava, Emory, and Bella working the crowd with their blingy cowgirl and cowboy outfits and their waves and bright smiles. 4C Little Gypsy Fable was ridden by Hallie as they strutted down the parade route. At 4C’s we always look forward to presenting the Gypsy Cobs in parades and love the people we meet and memories we make.

   
2012 Oklahoma State Fair Gypsy Horse Show

More Photos

The “Littles” as they are affectionately called by the Hearon family and friends competed in the Lead Line class at the Oklahoma State fair in September. The line-up of youth for this class was amazing with 8 entries so the judge had a difficult job ahead of her. As she studied each entry for their horsemanship and riding skills her decision became clear. Sparkling little 5 year old horsewoman, Isabella Hearon, riding the ever-experienced CDF Heza Corker was presented first place. Following in third place with his skills of working the crowd with his waves and wide smile was 5 year old Emory Smalley riding his trusty steed 4C Little Gypsy Fable. Taking the close fourth place ribbon was super horseman 6 year old McHale Howell showing his riding ability on a borrowed horse the handsome SK Keaton’s Charm. Finishing out the Little’s line up in fifth place was the extremely talented blinged out cowgirl Ava Smalley riding the dazzling 4C Lion King’s Nala with little 4C Nala’s Mirakole tagging along behind. What a successful show for the “Littles” of 4C’s Gypsy Horses! A special thanks to Michelle Simono for riding and placing 3rd on Corky in the large open walk trot class and for all the help!

Randy's Custom Gates

More Photos

While I share a love for horses with Brenda, I also like using my hands to create one of a kind pieces of art, like custom gates. I fabricated the white gates for our main entrance from materials we had at our Steel Company in Oklahoma City. I have decided to share this artwork and now offer my services. I can build off of your idea or I can design for you. I am working on another Gypsy Horse gate now but the sky is the limit! So whatever your love is I can make a gate you can be proud of. Thanks, Randy. For more information email me at randyhearon@aol.com or call my cell phone 405-306-2273.

Just got finished with my new creation for Kathy Ramey in Kansas City  "THE TIMONE GATE"!

   
Our trip to SD Farms in the UK

More Photos

This past summer we were fortunate enough to get to go to the UK and visit SD Farms Gypsy Cobs. Stevie Down and his family are the largest Gypsy Cob breeders in the UK and they have been breeding traditional Gypsy Cobs for generations. Stevie and his family are true Romany Gypsies and their heritage runs deep.

It was totally mind blowing seeing the hundreds of gypsy cobs, but what was truly amazing was listening to Stevie and his children talk about the horses and their blood lines. When asked what they knew about this horse or that they could tell you anything you wanted to know. Their passion and love for these horses that has been passed down for generations is so untouched and so special.

Being surrounded by legends like The Rocking Horse, Wooly Mammoth, Jim, Jack, Flash Harry, Blackjack, and I could go on and on can only be described as unbelievable. I felt like I was in a dream and the dream only got better when they harnessed up The Rocking Horse. Then the next thing I knew was riding along side Josie and she was handing me the reins. I was actually driving The Rocking Horse!!

Stevie and all of his family welcomed us into their fields, their barns, and their home and we feel very blessed that we were invited to share a piece of their lives. The time we spent with  Wylleen May, Stevie Down, and all the Down family was a sheer pleasure and honor that will not ever be forgotten.

 

   
The Next Generation

The next generation of 4C's youth took the Oklahoma State Fair by storm. McHale, Emory, Isabella, & Ava made their riding debute in the leadline class. Five year old McHale on Miss Daisy led the way into the arena with the crowd cheering. Then entering the arena waving and blowing kisses was our next rider, 4 year old Emory riding Fable. Next in, riding Corky was 4 year old Isabella who wowed the crowd with her reining skill. Last in, in a class of six participants astonishing the crowd, was 3 year old Ava riding Maladi.

OOOhs and AAAhs from the audience followed these youth around the arena until they rode up to their positions to be judged. Then came the judge's almost impossible decision. 5th place Emory & Fable, 4th place Ava & Maladi, 3rd place McHale & Daisy, and in 2nd was Bella on Corky. What an amazing and remarkable future 4C's Gypsy Horses has.

Blanchard Christmas Parade

More Photos

Twas a few weeks before Christmas and out on the Gypsy farm all the horses were wondering who’d prance in the parade. Randy was planning on Miss Daisy going driving, but Brenda was reluctant to give it a try, and what about Maya and Maladi or Fable & Beauty maybe take Susan, Scarlett, & Windsor let’s not forget Suleo & Gypsum and of course the bell of the ball Miss Nala herself.

So up to Main Street the 4C’s Gypsy trailer traveled with four lucky Gypsies and their loyal subjects, too. As the trailer pulled in there arose such a gathering and the trailer doors were thrown open to everyone’s Ohs and Ahs. And what to their eyes do they see but the 4 lucky Gypsies—Miss Daisy, Maladi, Maya, & Fable.

Miss Daisy led the way pulling the cart. Maladi carried Cylen and showed Coebe the way. Maya walked proudly letting Gracie & Shelbie tag beside. Fable held Hallie with Richie & Reese following along, and McHale, Emory, Bella, Ava, Audra, & Julie looked on.

As the parade ended we heard the Gypsies exclaim Merry Christmas to All and to All a Happy New Year!!!!

   
2009 FALL EVENTS

We’ve been busy~~~ Traveling to shows, clinics, and fairs. Up first was the OK State Fair with 10 horses! What a great time. We loved introducing our horses to everyone that came by and Randy even gave a lot of lucky kids a ride.  Then it was off to Indiana the next weekend for the Heartland Feathered Classic. We traveled with Mark & Marsha and took Fable, Splash, & Leo.  Meeting Albert & Amy Coates & Christopher Willett from the UK was quite a pleasure.  From there we loaded the trailer with Daisy & Fable Oct 1st and headed to Joplin for the Karen Scholls’ clinic. Amazing is all I can say about Karen. I learn so much every time I go to her clinics. Next up was the Tulsa State Fair where the 4C’s Girls performed their vaulting routines along with their teammates, coach, and of course Handsome Harry Houdini. The girls were simply amazing giving two flawless performances. Randy and I flew to Lexington, Kentucky Oct  15th-18th for the National Gypsy and Drum Horse Show. It was a great opportunity to be able to relax and just watch these beautiful creatures. Back home again I attended a clinic at Four Hoof Drive Ranch in Norman where we practiced extreme obstacles with Jet McCoy. I took Maladi and what a blast we had. Maladi and I jumped a jump that was 2 ½ by 2 ft!!!! She cleared it with ease and it was such a rush. Who says Gypsy Horses can’t jump????

Vaulting & Riding with Miss Darla

More Photos

The granddaughters of 4C’s Gypsy Horses—Shelbie, Gracie, Cylen and Hallie have begun a new discipline for gypsy horses. They have begun vaulting lessons with the Master Vaulting Instructor—Darla Ryder (darlaryder.com) along with the Premier Vaulting Horse—Handsome Harry Houdini. I approached Miss Darla about giving the girls riding lessons and she asked that the girls also join her vaulting team. They have been working with Miss Darla throughout the summer, and will be performing at the Tulsa State Fair in October. The team may also be performing at the Woman and Horse Expo in November at the Lazy E Arena. I look forward to training one of 4C’s gypsy horses to be a vaulting horse. Check back often for more updates, and to see which gypsy will be chosen as the Vaulting Horse.

Old, third in Most Hair Class, & 6th in Color Class Mares. The heat was exhausting, but we enjoyed the show. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing and talking to all of our Gypsy Horse friends.

   
Oklahoma Foundation for the Disabled Visit

On May 29th, 2009 4C’s Gypsy Horses welcomed 41 visitors from the Oklahoma Foundation for the Disabled. Their ages ranged from 18 to 60. From the looks on their surprised and happy faces I think that both the guests and the horses had a great time.  We at 4C’s hope everyone enjoyed themselves and enjoyed seeing the horses as much as we enjoyed having them come to the farm. After lunch under the shade of the tall oak trees our guests loaded their buses with Nala following along and headed back to Oklahoma City.

   
Black Forest Dispersal Sale

We are back from Colorado and the Black Forest Dispersal Sale. What an emotional trip! We came back empty handed but with a renewed desire to promote and show off these amazing creatures. Miss Daisy, Susan, Maladi, Scarlett, & Babe were all purchased from Black Forest, and it is difficult for us to think that I will no longer be able to make that trip to see the gypsy horses. I’ll never forget that feeling when we were nearing the farm and all the horses come into view. It is undeniably one of the most beautiful, tranquil sites we have ever witnessed. I couldn’t help shed a tear or two or three when I saw Babydoll, Dinah, Babe’s sissy, and of course Candi. Dinah was the first gypsy horse I ever touched and from that moment we had a special bond. Every time I saw her after that she’d raise her head as if to say I remember you. We can only hope & pray that someday our paths will again cross

Unexpected Visitor

More Photos

On a routine Sunday morning in November we received a phone call from aconvenience store in town, someone was needing directions to our ranch. We had no idea of who our visitors would be. A short time later 2 cars drove through our front gates, one lady got out of one of the cars and the 2 cars left! How strange we thought. Brenda went outside and the lady introduced herself as Carin Herrick from England! She was in OKC for the World Quarter Horse Show. Carin said that she had found our website and wanted to see our "coloured cobs". Her friends were more interested in finding a place to eat breakfast, so we gave her a tour and visited for about an hour. Carin has gypsies and lives near Appleby-in-Westmoreland. What an exciting day this turned out to be. She has since emailed us and is sending photos of the Appleby Fair. She said she would be back next year and told us we had to come to England and attend the Appleby Fair.
