The Exmoor Pony Autumn Gatherings
October and November are when most of the semi-feral Exmoor pony herds are gathered from their moorland enclosures and herded to their owners farms, for inspection and selling. So if you’re thinking of having an Exmoor pony, now is definitely the time to get one! There are strict qrazing quotas for farmers and landowners with common grazing rights, which mean that most of the foal crop must be found alternative homes or grazing schemes. While some fillies will be kept for future breeding stock, and the occasional colt kept to run on as a potential stallion, the majority of colt foals and some fillies will be available for sale and re-homing.
