Preserving the future, one Newfoundland Pony at a time.
Despite efforts to
save them, misconceptions and a general lack of understanding landrace breeds and conservation practices, still threatens their survival.
Our small sanctuary is working hard to turn the herd away from the brink, while preserving what nature created through survival of the fittest, the healthiest, hardiest and most wonderful of ponies.
Welcome to Villi Poni Farm (Finnish for "Wild Pony"), a safe haven for the critically endangered Newfoundland pony.
Not long ago, thousands of Newfoundland Ponies were slaughtered for meat, nearly to extinction.
Today only about 250 breeding ponies remain in the world. 34 of those reside in the USA.
10 live at our sanctuary, in New Ipswich, NH.
