Moonlit Fell Pony Farm is located in Snohomish, Washington, up on top of Wagner Hill. We are the only Fell Pony breeder in Washington state. We are nestled on 5 acres, producing one to two foals per year. We are surrounded by the Cascade Mountains to the East, and the Olympic Mountains to the West.
The name of our farm was derived from the feeling that I get from my Fell Ponies. The moon is mysterious, powerful, and peaceful. This is the reason for naming our farm, The Moonlit Fell Pony Farm.
My goals are to breed traditional quality Fell Ponies, and to give them a good loving start in life with their basic training. I am dedicated to always improve my skills and knowledge about these ponies. Inquiries are always welcomed!
The Fell Pony:
The Fell Pony originated from Northern England, on the western side of the Pennine Hills. They are considered one of the nine native pony breeds to the United Kingdom. Their name comes from the large hills from where they reside. With a harsh climate and rough terrain, these ponies have become very hardy. These tough ponies are known for their versatility, ground covering trot, and intelligence. They are great as an all around family pony.
The upper height limit is 14 hands. They come in a variety of colors such as black, brown, bay and gray. A minimal amount of white markings are acceptable, such as a star or a little white below the hind rear fetlock.

Why Fell Ponies?
As a child, I grew up riding a Morgan, named Charlie. He was a strong horse measuring 15.2. He always had a lot of energy, and always kept me on my toes. Now that I have mellowed through out the years, and have become a mother of three beautiful girls, I wanted something smaller and more versatile. I discovered the Fell Pony in 2004 upon my search for a good kid's pony. Although not all Fells are suitable for children, some are. It all depends on the individual pony and individual child. Fells are extremely smart, and are fantastic to ride! I like that they are closer to the ground, strong enough for a child or adult to ride, beautiful to look at in the field, alert on the trails, and easy keepers.
I love these ponies, and are breeding them out of a passion for the breed.
