Irish Cob or Gypsy Vanner

The Irish Cob Breed Standard
The Irish Cob is compact and powerful, ample both in muscle and bone, yet, with an ability to perform as a good all-purpose animal. Some Irish Cobs tend to be more "stocky" than others. The Irish Cob is well balanced and proportioned, standing straight and square and offering an imposing appearance. General appearance including topline relates to animals in good condition
My last horse was an irish cob and my new mare is an irish cob.
I see these horses have made their way to America.

Opinions welcome.

I lost the black cob last year to colic, But he was fantastic to ride a real gentleman , I found him very comfortable to ride, Jump he could do a bit of everything.
The coloured horse is my new mare and she isn't broken yet.

I paid 3500 for the black cob and 4500 euros for the coloured mare.
