    Can you tell me her breed?

    Hello, I am wondering if anyone can help me with the breed of my horse.
    I know she is a cob of sorts. However, she is a rescue and we are not sure of her background.
    Is she a Welsh? Or "Gypsy cob" ?? Or other?
    She is a piebald, big chunky girl with a lovely nature.
    Thanks in advance!

    I've got one of those! I know he has a lot of Welsh D, a little Shire, and the rest, who knows? I describe him as a Gypsy Cob type, as his passport was originally held with the old Gypsy Cob and Pony Society, but his actual "pedigree" is unknown. Hope that helps. Your mare is adorable, but then I am a little biased in the hairy cob department .

    Thank you for your reply! We believe she definitely has shire in her and Welsh D is probably right, I guess we will never know.. I suppose it doesn't matter what she is as I will always love her a lot! I love hairy cobs too :)

    Not pure Welsh, they don't have tobiano in their gene pool Probably has some Gypsy in there. I can't think of anything else that heavy that has tobiano.

    She looks like pure gypsy vanner/cob to me.

    Thanks guys, she is a very heavy horse.. literally! Thank you all for your help though. She came from gypsies but obviously that means nothing as to what she is..

    I'm going with pure vanner... I'd know a welsh D when I see it ;)

    She's most likely a gypsy cob and very typical of her breed
    It is possible to get a similar look by crossing a shire, clydesdale etc type with a pony breed or an arab though but her head doesn't look small enough for that
    I really like the look of her
