Origin of the Irish tinker

Because of its nature, Gypsy Vanner or Irish tinker has been regarded a type, not a breed, for a long time. Due to its origin, there are no clear signs of ancestry or pedigree for this breed before the first registries emerged in the 1990s. Perhaps this horse breed started in Ireland, which is why one of the breed's names is Irish Cob. Other names are Gypsy Horse, Gypsy Cob and Tinker Horse. The "vanner" is the sort of horse that attracts omnibuses and trucks, the main function of the Gypsy Horse. Some individuals just call them "Cobs," but the most common name for this horse breed is still Gypsy Vanner.
