Gypsy Vanner History:
The Gypsy Vanner – Irish Cob or Colored Cob is a type or breed of domestic horse from the British Isles. It a small, solidly-built horse of cob conformation and is often, but not always, piebald or skewbald. It is the only broken-colored horse breed of the British Isles, and is particularly associated with the Pavee and Roma traveling peoples of Britain and Ireland. There was no stud-book or breed association for horses of this type until 1996. It is now considered a breed and can be registered with a number of breed associations. It may also be known as the Gypsy Horse, Gypsy Cob, or Tinker Horse.
From about 1850 traveling people in the British Isles began to use a distinct type of horse to pull their vardos, the caravans in which they had just begun to live and travel. The color and look of the breed were refined in the years after the Second World War.
The Gypsy Horse was bred by the Roma of Great Britain to pull the vardoes in which they lived and traveled.The Roma had arrived in the British Isles by 1500 AD, but they did not begin to live in vardoes until around 1850. Prior to that, they traveled in tilted carts or afoot and slept either under or in these carts or in small tents. The peak usage of the Gypsy caravan occurred in the latter part of the 19th century and the first two decades of the 20th. [ref: wikipedia]
