This is a personal journey with new age modern travellers. The point being they have no history of Gypsy that’s what makes them interesting to me. That they have chosen to live by the road with horses keeping the tradition alive of really travelling and not staying in one place. They come from our culture so they are like us rather than the traditional travellers who are from different blood.
Not wanting to fit into settled life should mean a bit more than co-opting an imagined Gypsy lifestyle with associated horse and cart trappings. At least the Amish seem to have a reason for eschewing petrol engines.
