This is where the fox trotter horse addiction started. "Gypsy" was my first fox trotter horse. I painted a watercolor for half of her payment. She also was the first horse that I trained. I used a mix of "John Lyons" and "Jerran Flinders" training. "Jerran" was our neighbor at the time and helped me with training past groundwork. (I wasn't comfortable with how fast "John Lyons" got on his horse back then.) He also let me use his round corral. We kept "Gypsy's" first foal-- "Business" who I also trained. He is currently Morlin's fav. hunting buddy.
