  • The Wellington Advertiser - A versatile athlete: The Gypsy Vanner
    owners take tremendous pride in their horses This inspired Mutti to join the executive of the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society the North American registry for the breed Promoting the breed is important to her Serious breeders should be evaluating their horses and maintaining the characteristics of what the breed is she said noting The more breeders who do the registry evaluation program will make good pairing choices When these horses are evaluated for breed standards they are judged based on their characteristically elegant feathering mane and tale but also their heavy build which includes a draft leg stature that comes together at the hock and goes straight down It is a draft horse so it has more of a draft shoulder Mutti describes noting the muscle in both the neck and shoulder areas and the angle of the shoulders set for pulling The head should be straight with a flat nose and ideally smaller pointed ears Our stallion Alaska has perfect ears she adds proudly Andi is a heavier build with huge feather that spreads out Evaluated for conformation and movement last year Andi achieved the highest five star rating Alaska will be evaluated this fall As the horse grows in popularity Mutti expresses valid concerns about the bloodline People tend to over breed them since they ve come here I am concerned the breed will change in North America because people are mixing them for different purposes she said I am concerned they will change the breed forever Mutti refers to the issue of altering the horse s colouration While the Gypsy Vanner is not a specific colour they are traditionally black and white tobiano or piebald Others can be skewbald You will now find more and more North American breeders choosing to breed for particular trendy colours to distinguish their horses in the marketplace she confirms It is important to ensure that the breed type is not compromised if purchasing for a particular trendy colour Her passion for horses has Mutti currently enrolled in the University of Guelph s equine studies diploma Education about this unique horse is key and Mutti shares hers as acting coordinator of the Canadian Gypsy Vanner Horse Club which includes show demonstrations such as the Spirit of the Horse showcase at the annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and Can Am Equine events She also participates on the advisory committee of the Vanner Fair a Canadian event held every other year to celebrate the breed at DeerFields Stables Country Inn in Caledon People think they are just pretty horses she said But this breed is very adaptable for doing whatever you need because it is such an easy horse to work with We ve chosen dressage with Sasha It was a perfect fit In the show arena driving classes are also an option Mutti said the temperament of the horse comes from its cold blooded background making it relaxed mannerly and respectful of its environment A lot of families looking for a trail horse

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Foreign-exchange student learns the ropes at local Gypsy Vanner horse farm
    opportunity at Wellington County Gypsy Vanner Horses a small breeding and training stable was very appealing I wanted to discover the methods of stable management and horse breeding in Canada Having 10 years riding experience combined with her equine focused studies Daussion is proving to be a valuable part of the Mutti s team this summer not only taking on the bulk of the daily chores but also working on halter training and ground manners of the young horses While feeding horses mucking stalls and grooming may seem like skills that would be universal equine management practices vary greatly even within a region and certainly vary with the breed of horse and its job The particularly hot humid and wet conditions of this summer are especially hard on the Gypsy Vanner Horses with their long thick manes and profuse hair Most work with them must be done in the early mornings and late evenings to avoid the worst heat and the occasional swim with them in the pond gives them a refreshing break during the day During her stay in Canada the Muttis have laid out an itinerary to help Daussion experience as many different equine activities as possible She s already volunteered at a local horse camp for a day and attended harness racing and a rodeo Still on the agenda are visits to the Wellington County Plowing Match and several local horse shows I am very happy to have the opportunity for this exchange without which I could not have discovered the beautiful country of Canada and the Gypsy Vanner horse breed Daussion said July 26 2013 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the

  • The Wellington Advertiser - First renewable energy wind farm approval resulted in first lawsuit
    Power L P a unit of Capital Power Corporation is proposing to build the Kingsbridge II Wind Power Project in the Township of Ashfield Colborne Wawanosh north of Goderich It would consist of between 100 and 150 wind powered turbines to supply up to 270 megawatts of electricity Proponents state it would complement the existing Kingsbridge I Wind Power Project in the same township which commenced operations in 2006 and is owned and operated by an affiliate of Capital Power In Kingsbridge II one turbine will be as close as approximately 650 meters from the Drennans home Twelve more would be located within the surrounding two kilometers After learning that 11 families living amongst two different wind projects one situated in their neighbouring township had their homes purchased by wind companies the Drennans sought to gather information from those former residents about the adverse health and safety effects of the wind turbines They learned that as a part of the buyout agreements residents were blocked from discussing any negative experiences with wind turbines including health effects The Drennans supported by the community group SWEAR Safe Wind Energy for All Residents will ask court to invalidate the non disclosure clauses that stop people telling of problems with the turbines No court date has been set Meanwhile CBC News Canada reported Ontario s Ministry of the Environment is logging hundreds of health complaints over Ontario s 900 wind turbines but has down played the problem According to 1 000 pages of internal government emails reports and memos released under Ontario s Freedom of Information Act to the CBC the government has been trying to figure out how to monitor and control noise pollution The documents were released after a lengthy and costly battle waged by Barb Ashbee She and her husband Dennis Lormand said they suffered a series of ailments after wind turbines began operating near their home in Amaranth near Shelburne The area is now home to 133 wind turbines the largest wind farm in Ontario After being told theirs was the only complaint in the area they learned MOE officials at the Guelph District Office had tracked more than 200 dating back to 2006 when the wind farm first started operating Their home was bought by Canadian Hydro Developers now Transalta in 2009 one of six homes sold to the utility company Each seller had to sign confidentiality agreements The Lormands have risked legal repercussions by talking and spoke to CBC News last week They said they want to warn the public about what they say are the dangers of living near wind turbines and the supposed breakdowns in government monitoring CBC News stated their statement is We were silent I wouldn t say boo to anybody But the longer this goes on nobody s doing anything And now we have an Ontario election two weeks away Nobody understands what s going on out here October 14 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments
