January 29th thru 31, 4C’s Gypsy Horses traveled to Fort Worth for the prestigious GHRA Gypsy World Show at the Fort Worth Stock show. Representing 4C’s was 4C Little Gypsy Fable, 4C Windsor, 4C Flashy Maya, and 4C LK’s Suleo. We knew it was going to be a great weekend when we got to meet the Largest Gypsy Horse breeder, Steve Downs from the UK. We were also fortunate enough to meet his son Stevie and daughters Janey & Josie. What a pleasure it was to meet this family who have been breeding Gypsy Horses for generations. 4C Maladi and 4C Flashy Maya came from SD Farms, and I am proud to own two of their wonderful horses. The information they shared with us was invaluable, and I am honored to now call them friends.
