    It would be helpful to know what country you are located in. However, just assuming from the photo, I am going to guess Ireland?

    Could be anything really. So many different types in Wales. However, he might have some Gypsy Cob in his background.

    I doubt 'Vanner', since that is just a name coined by an American who made up the name to suit his new Gypsy 'Vanner' registry. The majority of Gypsy owners across the world, do NOT call their horses 'vanners'. It was an old name, describing anything which pulled a 'van' - ie. A cart of some kind. Unless a horse is registered in the vanner registry, they are not called by that name.

    I did not say 'gypsy'. I know what vanner means, a drafty type horse who could pull a heavy caravan. I did not limit this horse to being of the gypsy sort.I was always taught that a 'vanner' refers to a type of horse: a stout, short-legged riding-horse

    A 'vanner' is any breed, which in the old days, pulled any type of cart or wagon. Ie. Delivery carts. They could be from light pony types, to very heavy draft breeds. Delivery carts were called 'vans' - hence the vanner names. Those who drove the carts, were also known as vanners.

    In the old days in London, they even had 'Vanner baths', where those who drove carts, could wash their horses at the end of the day's work.

    The Gypsy breeders in the UK, do not approve of the name.
