Gypsy Vanner

I have always admired the beauty of the Gypsy Vanner horse.  The strong, stocky bodies, the beautiful piebald markings, and the amazing, thick manes and tails.  What a stunning breed.  I intentionally gave this sculpture a strong, arched neck and a large head, partly to really show off that mane, and partly for the simply elegant pose.

Gypsy Vanner

– Measures 10 inches long by 7 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches wide, making this my largest horse sculpture to date.

– Made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire and 16 gauge dark annealed wire, as well as some 19 gauge dark annealed wire for the detailed areas of the horse.  I really loaded this horse down with embellishments, because the Gypsy Vanner horse often has a very thick, full, beautiful mane – some even touch the ground!

Thank you for looking.  I hope you like this. 🙂
