Newfoundland

From Horse

The Newfoundland Pony was developed on Newfoundland Island in the easternmost province of Canada.

For many years this breed has been essential to the local people for both agriculture & transportation. For the most part they were left semi wild when not needed for work and there was very little controlled breeding, Mother Nature shaped their characteristics. Over the centuries, their physical isolation has resulted in a very distinct type of pony.
