September

Pigs go out for pannage

 

In September the Forest quietens down. The heather begins to fade and the drifting season is in full swing. Commoners usually attend the drifts where their animals run, helping out on foot or on horseback to round up the ponies for their annual health check. For commoners it is the most social time of year.

The ponies on the Forest look well and the pigs are usually let out for the pannage season towards the end of the month.

The barns are full with hay and straw, with just the bracken left to be baled. Those commoners with strong Forest roots are also filling their wood sheds in preparation for the cold of winter. Commoners have always earned their living in multiple ways and many commoners continue to sell hay and logs to local customers.

The daily chores of tending to the riding horses and animals on the holding continue as well as preparations for the winter including hedge cutting and fencing.
