This page is under construction, representing the beginnings of our "Virtual Tour". Our goal is to help you better "visit" us online. We hope to add more recent photos and video clips of all of our ponies and horses, our veterinary hospital and mountaintop farm in the near future. Check back again here soon!

(Below) And here's a closer look at two of our "boys" -- Model and Romeo. . . Enjoy your visit!
Waverhead Model IV: Licensed Fell Pony Stallion
Romeo: Approved Friesian Stallion
1999 Imported Fell Pony Stallion
(Waverhead Pearl X Lownthwaite Gary)
FPS Registration No. FP51000C*/Stallion License No. FP289R
Breeder: The late Mr. Jim Bell, Waver Head, Brocklebank, Wigton, Cumbria, England
Back in 1999, after almost a year-long search with the help of the late Mr. Jim Bell, we finally found the right stud colt to add to our breeding program. As a yearling and just prior to export, Model placed 3rd at the 2000 Fell Pony Stallion & Colt Show. His pedigree is exceptional with both champion sire and dam: Model's sire, Lownthwaite Gary, was Winner of the Two-Year-Old Colt Class at the FPS Annual Breed Show. At the FPS Stallion and Colt Show, Gary was also awarded Youngstock Champion and Reserve Supreme Champion in 1993, Three- and Four-Year-Old Champion in 1995, and Supreme Champion in 1998. In addition, in 2002 he won the "Best Progeny" class at the FPS Breed Show for the 4th time in succession! Model's dam Waverhead Pearl has also been a champion many times in the show ring, including 2-year-old and Youngstock Champion at the FPS Breed Show and Reserve Fell Pony Champion at Lowther.
Model has a wonderful temperament and is officially licensed for breeding by the Fell Pony Society (UK). He has been recently trained under saddle and in harness and began competing in driving in 2003. See below for photos at liberty and actions shots in competition, as well as video clips which show off his beautiful movement! Despite not only his young age but also his first year of competition, Model has earned multiple championships in driving already - including the coveted Concours d'Elegance! See the "News" page for more details!

best viewed actual size (thumbnail) rather than full-screen.
a shorter clip first to see if it works for you! If you don't have a media
player on your computer (such as Windows Media Player), you can download a great
little player for free by clicking on the light blue box below.
Video Clips of Model ~ May, 2003
And if you have a high-speed Internet connection, just for fun try this one! This is a computer-generated mix of all of the above clips, set to some "funky" music the computer picked out!! (I wish I could figure out how to delete the psychedelic stuff in the middle but otherwise the effects are pretty neat . . . It was all computer-generated – all I had to do was load the clips and the computer did the rest!)
We hope you enjoy seeing a beautiful Fell in action! And you might even catch a few glimpes of the surrounding Allegheny mountains here in north central Pennsylvania.
