Bullitan Board

Ailish is one of our original Gypsy mares. She was imported from Ireland in January 2004 along with
Kiah to be the founding mares of our Gypsy herd. She is a very elegant mare, with tons of mane,
tail and feathering. Her movement is very deliberate and cadenced and she passes this on to all of her foals.

Ailish has now had 5 fillies on the ranch, and in 2012 she is taking time off from being a mom to further
her training under saddle and eventually under harness. She has a good mind and gracefully
acts as the lead mare in our growing herd of horses. We are excited to see what more she can do!
