There are some breeders of Fells in the USA but I am going to add some links to this reply, for people who want to find out more about the breed.
They are quite expensive in the USA due to their rarerity so might be easier to import direct from the UK where you would have access to a bigger range of bloodlines :). In this country they are a registered rare breed due to the small number of breeding mares. The grey ponies like my Lunan are even rarer. The grey bloodlines used to be owned and bred by the monks.

Am I selling the breed well :) I adore them.

That is awesome! They look like miniature drafts almost. Very cool, I would definitely own one. I actually did look them up but as you said they are not very common here in the US. I'm not sure what costs would be to import but I'm guessing not very inexpensive? At any rate I can't afford another horse LOL but they are very neat ponies and I would love to have one someday!

I'll bite. Mine are nothing compared to Painted Horse's, but I still think where we live is beautiful, and I'm fortunate to have so much land to ride on. We live right in the heart of farming/potato country.

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.

Here's a few pics. :) These are my fave type of pictures, the "ear shots". I will try to get some more in the upcoming weeks. We have alot of trails nearby, and also do some road riding.

This one was taken at a parade. I just think the viewpoint, and my gelding's hat, are pretty funny! Lol
