    Oh, and where I'm registering him is not the best Gypsy place, but it's the only option I have at the moment, once he is registered with them ( Gypsy Cob and Drum Horse Association) I will be registering him with the Gpysy Horse Registry of America, which I believe has a better reputation.

    Hi Draftgrl.

    I don't know who told you that the GCDHA is not good, but they need to stop saying such things. And you can tell them I said so! They are one of the original registries in the US and also put on terrific shows.

    As you know, we unfortunately have way too many registries and there is still much talk going on, about combining them. The term 'Vanner' is a name coined by one original Gypsy Horse owner, who used his extreme salesmanship, to advertise the name. Most true Gypsy breeders in the UK, wouldn't dream of calling their horses a 'vanner'. It is a most derogatory word and used in the old days in England, to describe any old cart-pulling horse. In the US, only those actually registered with the Vanner registry, can rightly call their horses by that name. We do not call our horses vanners. Pretty much everyone else across the world, call them Gypsy Horses or Gypsy Cobs. This except in some European countries, where they are often known as Tinkers.

    About your cute boy. I think I remember who his sire is - The Governor, right? Can't remember if I ever knew the dam. Governor's dam is the gorgeous Tansy, who is a black and white tobiano. The Governor was definitely heavily sabino of one type or another and was also tobiano. We do not have frame in the Gypsy breed. I'd say your fellow is tobiano definitely, with sabino of come kind and possibly splash. Most Gypsies are these patterns, unless solid of course or appy.

    See that is why I told her to talk to you. I don't know gypsy registries fro a hole in the ground. Lol I knew you would know the ins/outs/etc of the registries available for gypsy horses.

    Thanks NdAppy. I suppose it is always difficult when getting into a new breed, to understand everything.

    If I say spotted will I get things thrown at me???

    I would say tovero.... I think he falls under medicine hat... but I am quite sure about the spotted part!!

    Thanks Featheredfeet. I really do appreciate it. Actually no one has told me anything about the breed,m everything I know about it is from my own research. Yea, I know that the term "Vanner" is not correct.

    I really have no idea about any of the registereis especially ones here in the states. Any and all help with the breed is most welcome. I first found out about Gypsy's in high school, and have wanted one since, by sheer luck got Traum.

    His daddy is actually The Royal Tinkers Commanche, and his dam is an unregistered quarter horse.
