The horses paw and prance and neigh
Fillies and colts like kittens play
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins.
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes
About Gypsy Horses
Gypsy horses were envisioned by the Gypsy peoples of Europe as a strong, beautiful, kind and willing partner. They are all of these things.
The original Gypsy horses in the USA were imported, and some still are to this day. Breeders in the USA have gone forward and today you find Gypsy's in many colors, not just the original black and white that is preferred by the Gypsy breeders in Europe.
Assumptions about the reasoning for black and white coat colors can be made since written ownership records, and stud books, were not kept. therefore Identification by coat pattern was probably important.
