To celebrate (in advance) National Horse Day in Canada (and because I might not have time again), I wanted to do a card to recognize the Newfoundland Pony. Numbering fewer that 400, it would seem, these ponies have been around for a long time, but are numbering fewer and fewer. There are a few farms and families in Newfoundland who are endevouring to keep this pony alive, and I truly hope they succeed.
The background is loosely taken from Western Brook Pond fjord in Newfoundland..
