It may well increase their price in other countries but I also think it's a good description and many of them are still used by the gypsies for for towing their caravans, especially when they go to Appleby Fair in the summer.

"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.

I believe that Welsh Cobs cannot have pinto coloring to be registered... at least not in the US.

Edit: The verbatim rule for Welsh Pony and Cob coloring is that they can be "Any color except piebald or skewbald". >> http://www.welshpony.org/RULEBOOK2.pdf
