Gypsy Cob vs. Gypsy Vanner

Can someone please tell me what the difference is between a "cob" and a "vanner". I was under the impression that a "Vanner" was a purebred, and a "cob" could be a crossbred (at least 50% gypsy).

Horseluver, see the Gypsy Vanner Debate thread on this forum.

No need to rehash what's been discussed ad nauseum on the other thread.

I read through some of that, just seems like everyone argueing and I didn't bother reading the whole thing.

I was really just interested in the US registry ONLY, what can be registered as a vanner vs. cob, nothing more than that.

Is this the registry you are interested in? Gypsy Vanner Horse Society

Maybe give them a call.

They are the same thing, Vanner is the American term for an Irish/Gypsy Cob.

"Did I not just use the word 'puzzling'?"
