I believe horses of this breed are called Tinkers because it was the group of "wanderers", also known as "tinkers" by the Irish (known as "gypsies" by many other cultures), who developed this breed into the awesome one it is today, very calm, excellent with kids, hardy, and great for both riding and pulling carts.

“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ” ~ William Shakespeare

Hi. I did read the whole thread. The explanation given was not correct, so I was sharing what I've learned. Love this breed! :)

Good Luck on your Judging! Where did you find your halter for him? I am trying to find a black one for my Gypsy (and actually his sire was a "Tinker")
