Pannage

Pannage
At this time of year, it is traditional in the New Forest for pigs to be let loose into the Forest for about two months. They eat up the fallen acorns, beechmast, chestnuts etc, which can be harmful to the ponies. They have two or three rings in their snouts to prevent them digging too deep and damaging the forest floor

Wonderful capture Judith. Never saw or heard of them, I only knew the ponies. Untill now. It a good idea to leave them clear the area a bit.
