Meet Gypsy Lynn (AKA. Gypsy)
"My papa got her for me when she was a baby. She is a full-blooded mustang but loves it when I ride her. Her dad was sold to someone and her mom had died . My papa talked with the women at the store and he bought her for $25.00! She was a cheap little bit but I love her more than anything. She had a sister who did not make it. I have had her for about 2 years now and she has been the best horse I have ever had. She gets along very well with my other horse, Brave Heart. I have the best horse anyone could ever want! She loves to be riden, mostly a western horse but she does some english. She likes Barrel racing and loves to chase cows. She has been in one jumping contest and got 3rd place. I was very proud."
