In September of 2004, we traveled to England where we visited several farms and selected four mares to bring back to the U.S. Here are photos of some spectacular Dales Ponies we saw.

Charlie Parker breeds the rare roan colored Dales Ponies at his Heritage Farm Center in Cumbria. Charlie uses his Dales Ponies for "snigging" - draging lumber out of the woods - and for working with traditional horse drawn farm equipment.
