Gypsy Horse, known as the Irish Cob(UK, Ireland) and the Gypsy Vanner(USA). The breed originates from the UK and Ireland. Members of the breed come in a variety of colours, but predominantly are of piebald colouring and have many draft characteristics, including heavy bone and abundant feathering on the lower legs. There is no exact known history of the Gypsy Cob. It is believed by some that the Gypsy Cobs are descended from a combination of Shires, Clydesdales, Friesians, and Dales Ponies with their origins in the Romani gypsy community of the United Kingdom.

- This stunning Celtic mosaic is part of the gardens at Dundonnell House in Wester Ross, northern Scotland. I particularly like the stag head that has been incorporated into the design.3 hours ago
I'd love to do a MUCH smaller version of this in my own garden...sigh, hours and HOURS of work would be required.
Dundonnell House, completed in 1769, was built by the Mackenzies of Dundonnell. They lived on the vast Dundonnell Estate until the 1940's when the laird of that time emigrated to Australia and sold his estate. The Dundonnell land, at one time, was part of the vast Clan MacKenzie holdings that stretched from the east coast to the west coast in this part of Scotland.
Subsequently, the house and lands have changed hands four times with the present owner being resident for the last ten years, or so.
