With a long flowing mane, tail and feathering, this magnificent cross bread of the Shire and Dale pony by the Gypsy people of United Kingdom are as gentle as they are muscular.  The Gypsy people wanted a muscular horse (the Shire) but smaller (Dale pone) to pull their Gypsy wagon called a Vardo.

These horses have beautiful coloration from black & white, brown & white, black and brown, etc.  When I first saw this breed in a magazine, they looked like there were whimsy carousel horses.
