Meet the Schleich Tinker Foal. Making its first appearance in 600 B.C., Tinker horses have had many different names during their breed’s history. Some of the names include Gypsy Vanner, Gypsy Cob, Coloured Cob, and Irish Cob. All of these monikers point to a remarkable horse bred by travelers to be strong enough to transport their homes or belongings but friendly enough to play with their children upon the journey’s end. Selectively bred with horses such as Clydesdales and Frisians, the result is the strength of a draft horse with the height of a saddle horse.
