    Though you can't see it here, it's an interesting note that this AQHA mare has partial-blue eyes.

    oh fun!! Love the QH's and Paints BTW...

    Here's my sweetie... "Emo" Emo is a Gypsy Horse also frequently called Gypsy Vanners (which is another registry) Gypsy Cobs, Tinker horses... There's also a "Gypsy Sport horse" (Gypsy crossed with another breed) or "Gypsy Drum horse" (Gypsy horse crossed with a Shire or other draft breed)

    Gypsy horses are a range of sizes, just like QH's or Arabians... often they are in the 13-15 hh range, although many of the taller ones are prized by those who want taller horses. Once you pass 15+ hands though, you're getting into the Drum horse sizes.

    Emo is the only Gypsy horse I have met but I communicate with many people who own them and the most common trait we share is how good natured, willing to learn (versatile) and "people loving" these horses are. Of course, the trait that strikes most people is the HAIR... they are one hairy beasts, from their bell bottoms to their thick, long tail & mane to the tip of their mustached nose.

    (The first picture is when I first got him... his forelock is thick, black and to the end of his nose now, his mane is to his knees) ... I really need to upload more recent pictures, these are all from last year.
