In times when colored horses were unfashionable, the Romani were more than happy to take them, including colored Shires. These crosses produced solidly built animals strong enough to be work over long distances yet placid enough to be tied up for long periods.
Hackney horses were also cross bred to bring high stepping knee action but these finer boned horses were not robust enough so the cold-blooded Shires and Clydesdales crosses remained in favor.
While previously status symbols among the Romani, Gypsy Vanners are now fashionable show stoppers with flashy feathers.
