I didn't liked Gypsy Cobs before meeting one for real. They weren't my kind of horse, to stocky and feathered for my liking. But after meeting one I became very attracted by their wonderful personalities and disposition. I've never seen a horse more laid back and well tempered before.
It's not my horse but I would love to own him. He came to us as a 3 year old stallion, green broke to saddle. I was expecting to see a strong horse with study behavior. But he was very people oriented, very curios, laid back and willing to do whatever you asked for him. You could and still can walk him with a leash around his neck near any other horse you want without having a problem. He doesn't even turn his head to the other horses when you're leading him. He is a wonderful horse for beginner to learn on him, it's a great trail horse single or with other horses, child safe as can be. And another great thing about them is that they are extremely easy keepers. You can feed them only hay and they will still be chubby.
I don't know a thing about his quality, I bought him for my employee with 5500 Euro from France. He was originally from England though. He is from this stallion Lloyds | Kent Gypsy Horses
. Luckily he is bigger than his father standing around 14,2 hands.
The price for Gypsies is indeed bigger but if you really want one I'm sure that you will never regret buying it. They are extremely versatile. I've seen lately Gypsies in England start at 900 - 1000 £ . The same happening to Frisians.
