Latcho Drom's "Caymus"
Latcho Drom X Shampoo Girl
Born: July 1st, 2004
GVHS Registration #:  GV00222F1

-Stunning at Two -
Breeding great horses is a passion at Gypsy Gold. We achieve our goals by embracing another breeders simple but profound philosophy. When asked his secret to success, Federico Tesio, the world's greatest breeder of Thoroughbred race horses said, "Breed the best to the best and hope for the best."
We do that at Gypsy Gold and the result is colts like Caymus. A DNA son of Latcho Drom and Shampoo Girl, Caymus holds the genetics of two of the most dynamic Vanner horses in the world, and as a bonus Caymus is black.
Some of the most famous sires and dams in the history of the Vanner breed are black (The Lob Eared Horse, Tyson, The Old Black Horse, Bob The Blagdon Horse, The Crymere Mare, etc). Gypsies believe that black sires and dams produce deeper black and white babies. 
To a Gypsy color is the icing on the cake, not the cake. A body born from the vision that created the perfect caravan horse, or Vanner is what dedicated Gypsy breeders demand first. We currently stand two extraordinary black Vanner stallions at Gypsy Gold, (BB King and Caymus). 
Caymus was sold as an embryo and then we purchased him back. Caymus is stunning and only turned two July 1, 2006.
Caymus is extremely gentle and has excellent semen for shipping. 

2013 Stud Fee: $2500
The above text was written in 2007, back when Caymus was being introduced as a breeding stallion.  Today, in 2013, I'd like to add a few things.

Caymus is a fantastic producer, and a way of passing on his quality, consistently, similar to that of his own Sire, Latcho Drom. 

Bellow are pictures of Caymus' offspring, so you can see for yourself.
