About the Book
The local people, granted the title of Commoners, have kept semi-feral ponies in the forest for centuries and there is a long history of breeding, racing and selling ponies. The pictures in this book record the sales yard and its activities during the September, October and November 2012 auctions and aim to document the event through informal portraits of people and animals, alongside observed details.
