I had no idea there was a Gypsy Vanner breed. It is relatively new, and this stallion is a prime exemplar. The phrase "effing gorgeous" comes to mind. Originating among the Romany of the UK & Ireland, the breed is a blend of the Shire, Clydesdale, Friesian, and Dales Pony. Bred, of course, to pull vardoes, the breed remains a Romany symbol of power & strength.
