"Gypsy vanner" appears to be a name given to them by Americans, probably to increase their market value.
Not true. ONE person in the US only, originally decided to call them 'Vanners' and made a registry under that name. In fact, one can only call them Vanners, if they happen to be registered in that registry. Seems though, many think now, that is
the name unfortunately.
Most in the US call them Gypsy Cobs/Horses.
