Help with fluffy horse breed required.

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Does anyone know much about this horse please?  or is it a pony ?

Pictured at a traveller's horse fair in the UK.

It's quite fluffy, and has feathered feet, common with horses belonging to the gypsies.

I guess that it's a bit of a mix, but someone may know more.

Thanks !

Generally these horses are either piebalds or skewbalds. In this instance it would appear to be a young piebald. Eventually it will lose the "fluffy" coat and look like the ones in the background. Was the photo taken recently?

Thank you for the help.

I am now reading up and learning about piebald and skewbald horses.

The photo was taken in 2010. Just had some film scans done, and the lab offered to do more than was requested, for the same price.

Piebald and skewbald are simply the colour combos.  Piebald is black and white, and skewbald is any other combination other than black and white.  The breed of horse is Gypsy Vanner.
