Dolly is a fantastic mare who has a lot of love to give, she is happy living with other horses and loves to make friends. Once brought back into work will make someone a super hacking mare. In the five years i have owned dolly she has become my best friend so this has been a very hard decision.

Gypsy Cob

The Gypsy Horse (USA), also known as a Gypsy Cob, Gypsy Vanner (USA and UK), Coloured Cob (UK)", is a horse breed. Members of the breed are usually of pinto 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.

Characteristics:

There is no set color standard for Gypsy Cobs, although the horse is often piebald or skewbald, two variations of pinto coloring. In the United Kingdom, spotted black is traditionally called piebald, and any other spotter colouration skewbald. The Gypsy Vanner typically has an abundant mane and tail as well as "feather" or "feathering" on the legs, long hair starting at the cannon bone and flowing down over the hooves.

The build is powerful and compact, with a short neck and back. The Gypsy Vanner is heavy boned, the typical horse measuring between 14 and 16 hands (56 to 64 inches, 142 to 163 cm). There is no height limit in the registry. The cannon circumference can range from 8" to 12". The chest is broad with well sprung ribs, the hips are heavy, they have short backs, strong shoulders, and the withers are rounded. The hair should be straight and silky, kinky hair is a fault. Their legs should have heavy bone set on large hooves, their hind legs should not be too straight. Gypsy Vanners must also have excellent endurance, and be able to go long distances without tiring.
