Very hairy piebald gypsy cobs for me. I just love them as hey have great personalities, not necesarily great temprements though. I adore all the feathers and mane and tail as they look fantastic.

I also love shires for the same reasons.

Well for me its got to be a traditional irish cob, maybe that decision is a little bias because i have a lovely one lol, but I got him because of his temprement cheeky, friendly and chilled out, full of character, but then i would say that :p. To be fair I have ridden and helped with gypsy cobs and welshies, and i think there is so much varriation its a hard question to answer. But i love feathers so thats it for me :)

My cob, Sammy, is an Irish Cob and an ex trotter, not much in the way of hair and feather but he is rock steady.  My friend has a traditional piebald cob stallion with the most amazing mane and loads of feather, and my filly's mum was a traditional cob too, whose mother was a clydesdale.  So I like them all really.

To me, a cob is an Irish cob, whatever their colouring - I have 2, both bay, and I love 'em to bits.

I'll probably get shot down in flames now, but I don't think Welsh D's really count as cobs - I still like them (my absolute favourite riding stable horse was a 14.2 chestnut mare Welsh D called Roulette) but they're not what I'd call particularly cobby......

I have had the honour to have owned a Piebald Gypsy Cob called Tonka who was such a great character know by many in our area and was loved sadly missed after 21 years together, then took on a rescue ex-racehorse as felt another Cob I would always be judging against Tonka, now have a Belgian Warmblood who is a sort of big Cob type but not if you know what I mean, in fact would love to own another Gypsy Cob but now the prices they are fetching are riducous more that a TB.

 Welshie all the way for me. Although I hate stereotypes I would say they tend not to be for everyone as they are usually more highly spirited than other cobs.


Personally I love their looks too as although 'chunky' they have beautiful heads and fantastic high stepping movement

I love Welshies, some are more traditional than others with more bone and feather.
