If you live in the New Forest and have horses, then you need to be aware of a very real threat to the way in which you look after them. This threat is posed by the New Forest National Park Authority's recently published 
"New Forest National Park Plan Consultation Draft".

EQUIFUN 2008

Tetuã's Display telling the story of 
The European Cup Football 
Semi-final 2006
ENGLAND .v. PORTUGAL
Having flown the Flags, kicked the football, we then asked what else can we do with
 a pole and a row of flags  ......
The answer: Jump them!! So here goes with reins in one hand and a flag in the other, off we go!

"Hello Piggies!"
Forever inquisitive ...
... though keener on foraging
Snout to Snout
Pigs are turned out in the New Forest in the Autumn to forage on the fallen acorns. This Forest tradition is called pannage. Pannage is no longer carried out in many areas, but is still observed in the New Forest of Southern England, where it is also known as "Common of Mast". It is still an important part of the Forest ecology and helps the husbandry of the other New Forest livestock as pigs can safely eat acorns as a large part of their diet,
whereas excessive amounts may be poisonous to ponies and cattle.

Not every horse likes pigs, some can be quite terrified,
so it's worth making sure your horse gets used to them first in a safe environment.
