A relatively new type of small draft horse that exhibits characteristics of the Clydesdale, Shire, Friesian and Dales pony that were mixed to form the Vanner. In appearance the horse looks similar in conformation to a miniatured version of the Shire, with the same long flowing feathers emanating from the knees in the front and just below the hocks in the rear, long flowing manes, forelocks and tails which will drag on the ground.
Colors are generally paint, piebald, and skewbald -- ovaro or tobiano.
