Caitlin (19yrs) our Chartered Accountant/Economist to be and an outstanding
writer and author with fiction novels. Finished school last year
obtaining a double scholarship (Economics & Accounting) Now at
University, we are so proud!!!!
Both girls hung up their riding hats a few years ago and
especially now as they explore life - contemplate their
futures and both studying hard at University.
It was a phone
call that day a few years ago now - when a lady ringing
about a QH broodmare that I had for sale mentioned a Gypsy
Cob stallion available at stud.
We bred a part bred Gypsy cob filly out of my QH mare and she is
the loveliest filly.
In her heavily feathered UGG boots, adorned with her very
thick and hairy double dark mane, large apple bum and
gorgeous buckskin coloured coat she is just gorgeous. Superb
in temperament and very people orientated.
Little then did I know that my world would change and take me on the
beginning of my Gypsy Cob Journey.
our Gypsy Cob stallion in 2009 -
and in December 2009 we purchased Gypsy Magic Quality Star from Deborah Nash,
Gypsy Cobs NZ and owner of "The Gypsy Star of Brackenhill" sire to
our filly. We then went on to import Sydney Harkers best mare, his
Queen of his herd, and another top quality mare from Harkers in
England. We have another World Class quality mare due to arrive in
2013, and they say this breed is addictive!!! :)

I will continue to develop and update this site as and when time permits.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the website.
We welcome visitors and if you are looking
for QUALITY we are only too happy to help find you that perfect match
through our invaluable contacts we have made over the years.
It is in fact the rare stallion
that "stamps" himself or actually betters the quality of
his foals over others. This in fact is our objective at
"Romany Cobs", to provide excellence that gives our mare
owners the exceptional quality in foals they
as a true representation of this breed.
Hope you enjoy the
