GYPSY VANNER HORSE FARM in OCALA with/Lunch
Under the shade of age old trees you’ll find historic animals you can’t see anywhere else in Florida. For Florida Native Dennis Thompson, a chance encounter on a vacation to Europe led to a lifelong love. He now breeds and raises these wide eyed beauties with the feathered heals, he discovered in a Northern wales Gypsy camp. He brought the first 16 Gypsy Vanner’s right here to North America, and continues to raise them in Ocala on hundreds of acres of Old Florida ranch property. Take a glimpse into the history of this breed, how their farm works, and an up close and personal experience with the gentle giants of the draught horse breed. While you’re on the farm, you’ll see over 40 different Gypsy Vanner horses along with donkeys, mules and even parrots. Because they’re a breeding farm, you’ll even get to see their youngest horses galloping through the fields. If you’re an animal lover with an eye for history, this day-trip adventure will be right up your alley. This sold out quickly last time.
