Probably a Welsh Cob or Gypsy Vanner.

With the amount of feathering, the amount of mane/tail, and the overall build/look, I'd be more inclined to go with gypsy vanner.

Here's your horse: Cobs sales and breeding of Coloured Cobs

Although they don't give pedigrees, the horse does look like a purebred Gypsy Horse/Cob. It would not be a Gypsy Vanner, unless registered in the one registry which uses that name in the US.

I doubt seriously, the horse pictured is a Drum. A Drum would look different.

"Cob" has long been used to describe a heavy type riding horse. However, Welsh Cobs and Gypsy Cobs/Horses/Vanners are a 'breed'. I doubt that this horse is registered with the Vanner registry. Very few breeders in the UK register with that or other US registries.

Coloured cobs are very common in the UK and many of them originate from Ireland. A Welsh cob is also known as a 'Section D' ie, it is the largest of the welsh breeds. Section D's are not so feathered as this and I've never seen a coloured one.

Looks like a gypsy cob to me. Far too heavy and feathered to be a Welsh Section D. I've never seen a coloured Welsh, either.

"Gypsy vanner" appears to be a name given to them by Americans, probably to increase their market value.
