Gypsy Vanners

Hello!
We want to get a new horse, but my dad is allergic to cats, dogs, horses, etc...
I know Curlys are Hypoallergenic horses, but I heard someone mantion that Gypsy Vanners are too, is that true?

Thanks in advance :)

I have personally never heard that about any other breed besides the Bashkir

We keep our 'Gypsy Vanner' on my in-laws land and my father in law is extremely allergic to horses. (he still agreed to let us have him there cause he loves animals) And he did react hen we first got Frazer but it wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. Now he doesn't react at all, they both keep themselves to themselves. He just knows not to go near Frazer when his winter coat is coming out.
There are always ways around things :)

There is nothing special about a cob's (gypsy vanner) hair, there is usually just a lot of it!

Except for one cat breed, which people have been working on for years now, to try to produce a truly hypoallergenic animal, the rest of animals are not hypoallergenic.

Now, 'some' animals seem to be more or less hypo than others and to different people. I have heard that some 'seem' to be less allergic to Gypsies, but I have no idea if this is true. The next person quite well might be very allergic to them.

The best way to proceed, is to spend time around any animal you intend to purchase and not listen to tales that they are hypoallergenic. Lots of the time, this hypo thing, is a selling gimmick.
