Come see our NEWFOUNDLAND PONIES … “Shine, Barney, Charlie and Queenie”. The ancestors of the Newfoundland Pony arrived with the Island’s early settlers from the British Isles. They were hardy creatures, already well adapted to the harsh climate of the islands of the North Atlantic. Over subsequent centuries, and with little outside influence, the hardiest of these early pony immigrants to Newfoundland interbred and eventually evolved into one common pony type, now recognized as the Newfoundland Pony. In the past, the Newfoundland Pony was
used to plough gardens; haul fishing nets, kelp and wood, gather hay and provide their families with transportation about the Island. These functions were replaced by modern technology and the pony population plummeted. To protect this special and historic pony, the Newfoundland Government has recognized it as a Heritage Animal. The current Newfoundland Pony population totals less than 400 animals. An ongoing effort on the part of concerned individuals from across Canada has stabilized the population, however, the Newfoundland Pony continues to be identified as a critically endangered species by Rare Breeds Canada.
