Look at this beautiful horse

The Gypsy Horse  is also known as an Irish cob, Gypsy Cob, Gypsy Vanner, Coloured Cob or Tinker horse.

The breed originates from the UK and Ireland. Members of the breed come in a variety of colors but predominantly are of piebald coloring and have many draft characteristics, including heavy bone and abundant feathering on the lower legs.

There is no exact known history of the Gypsy Cob. It is believed by some that the Gypsy Cobs are descended from a combination of Shires, Clydesdales, Friesians, and Dales Ponies with their origins in the Romani gypsy community of the United Kingdom.
