First South African site added, below New Zealand in the links.....

Call them what you want; Traditional Cobs, Coloured Cobs, Irish Cob, Tinker, Gypsy Cob, Gypsy Vanner or just plain "Gypsy Horse" they are all the same horse. I hope that we can retain the vision of the Romany people and not let the desire for huge amounts of feather and hair override all else and detract from the wonderful personality and temperament of this breed of horse.

I have compiled over two hundred links to Gypsy Horse breeders plus Drum Horse & Gypsy Sport Horse breeders in the USA grouped by states. In the table below Drum Horses breeders without any pure Gypsy Horses will have [DH] after their listing and Gypsy Sport Horse breeders with no purebred Gypsy Horses will have [GSH]. I have also listed Gypsy Horse breeders in several other countries, breed associations, and some interesting UK links to horse fairs, museums and articles about Romany people's lives, their vardos, language, books etc.

There seem to be more and more horses advertised as "Gypsy Drums", "Gypsy Shires", or even "Gypsy Cobs", "Gypsy Horses" or "Gypsy Vanners" that have no "Gypsy Horse" blood in them. I have seen people selling Spotted Drafts with varying amount of feather as "Gypsy Drums" & "Gypsy Shires".

Please don't get me wrong, The Spotted Draft is a fine horse and I have no idea why some people breeding them feel the need to jump on the Gypsy bandwagon. I have seen smaller paint horses possibly with some Shire or Clydesdale in them, giving them moderate feather advertised as "Gypsy Horses", they may look a little like Gypsy Horses, but that doesn't make them one.

The horse known by the above names is called a "Coloured Cob" in the UK, it was originally bred by the Romany people, Gypsies, or Travellers as a smaller draught horse for pulling the family Vardo. Given the close proximity to family life temperament was of huge concern, so the breed became perhaps the most docile horse ever seen. It is not just about looks... so no matter how much some crosses might look like a Gypsy Horse, don't be fooled.

Don't rush into a purchase, if the advertisment says "registered" check it out. Here are
the contact email addresses for all of the Gypsy Horse and Drum Horse Registries:

Claudette Griffith - Gypsy Horse Association

Jan Easter - Gypsy Horse Registry of America

Gypsy Cob & Drum Horse Association

Laurel Eaton - American Drum Horse Association

Joyce Christian - Gypsy Vanner Society

The American Livestock Breed Conservancy has regrettably changed the status of the Shire Horse from "Watch" to "Critical". Please think twice before removing a Shire mare with papers from the Shire Horse gene pool, extinction is forever.
