I've always loved Fells and Dales (more Dales, though)!! I almost bought a Dales pony.

As for the colt, I'm not a good judge of babies, but he's not impressing me. Something about his head, and his hind end, too.

They're like Friesians, they're bred to drive and that's what I would love to do!!

Wish Upon a Ster Friesians in Maryland has a bunch. The one picture you have of the Friesian and Fell looks like it might be from there? It looks like their head trainer on the Friesian? They always take on Working Students, if you want some hands on time!

I just came across this breed today! I was searching for a horse for my husband and saw a picture that looked like a Friesian and I clicked on it and they were Fell ponies. Now I want one because I absolutely LOVE Friesians! Man the more and more I look I want so many different breed horses lol. I need to close my eyes from now on.

I don't really know much about Dales ponies, I want to learn more about them too. But for some reason I'm more drawn to Fells, not sure why since they are very similar breeds.

That first pony did indeed come from Wish Upon a Ster. I've checked out there website before and even considered interning with them (decided to go somewhere else for basic Dressage training first). They really focus more on Friesians, they don't have very many Fells (actually, I can't find ANY fells on their website except for the one in the video which they have already sold... I think his name is Hinter). Don't get me wrong, I love friesians! I'd love to own one someday but I don't think I'd want to breed them. Ponies are my thing. I found another place in Wisconsin that breeds fells and offers an internship program. I may go there after I finish up the internship program I'm doing this year.

WildHearts, I'm glad you like Fell Ponies too. They are great all around ponies and they are more than able to carry adult men, so I think it would be perfect for your husband (plus you could play around with it to ) Just keep in mind that even though they look like Friesians they are NOT Friesians. They may be related way back there but they have very different characteristics. Have you checked out the Fell Pony Society of North America website yet? If not, go look around :)

Oh I know Jubilee, I liked them because they look just like them but I know they are not related.

I think I found the pony you listed! Is it from a place that needs to sell their ponies due to an illness in the family? They have one on their website that looks exactly like the one posted! If it wasn't the website let me know and I'll send you their website, they had a 3rd picture on there too.

I inquired about the 2 year old filly but she has already been sold. I really wanted a black one :(

Yeah, that's the same website. It's tragic that something like that would happen and make them have to sell all their horses :(. I really like their stallion, there aren't very many Grey stallions in the USA.

I liked their 2 year old Filly too. Too bad she is already sold. The good new is that black is the most common color for Fells so you should be able to find one. Are you seriously looking into buying one? I can try to help you find one. Send me a PM with your price range and what you want in a horse. I'll see if I can find something for you.
