These pretty horses are Lorina and Parzifal, two beautiful (and real-life) Gypsy Vanners. Ever since I discovered Gypsy Vanners I've been in love with their fairytale appearance, so it was a great pleasure to finally get the opportunity to draw them. I hope I managed to get the markings close to what they are supposed to be, and I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did!

I have a friend that would go absolutely nuts over this beautiful piece. Gypsy Vanners are gorgeous all by themselves, but you have captured that beauty and produced it anew for all to enjoy in such a way that leaves me awed.
