Did You Know Horses Can Grow Mustaches?

Updated July 30, 2020 1.6k views10 items

Yes, there are horses that grow mustaches in this world. That's a thing. Go ahead, take a moment to let that sink in.

There is something both elegant and hilarious about a horse mustache, kind of like an animal that always has great hair days or a dog with dreadlocks. It might look a little ridiculous, but a horse that can rock a handlebar is somehow inherently awesome. This particular horse, known as the Gypsy Vanner or Irish Cob, is known for its stocky build and elegant appearance but wasn't officially recognized as a unique breed until 1996. A Florida couple first discovered one during a trip to England and the internet discovered this amazing breed soon after. The masses instantly fell in love. While not every member of the Gypsy Vanner family is born with fly horse facial hair, the ones that are wear their mustaches with pride.
