Gypsy Cobs

Isn't he a lovely fellow? His name is Chief and he's a Gypsy cob. I've found some fascinating websites about these horses, which the Gypsies bred for their compact strenght, gentle nature and endurance. The hair around the fetlocks is called `feathers' and a wild mane and tail and full lush feathers are three of the marks of a Gypsy cob, as well as the piebald/skewbald colours.
I have fallen in love with the Gypsy Wizard at
Take a look at this bloke, he's magnificent, a horse to carry you in your dreams.
Another fine Gypsy Cob stud is at Don't forget to check out `the boys".
Gypsy cobs bring out the romantic in everyone.

Gail this was so wonderful. How beautiful to see the young one, too. I learned a lot from these links and am always glad when traditions that are great are revived. Thanks for these interesting links.

What a dear: I've always loved the pinto patterns like those on the Ranch when I first taught. Tradition is so satisfying. Fran

This fellow is a picture of strength and endurance, a companion on the gypsy highway of life. I love him.
