The Grazers: Ecology and Behaviour of the Common Stock
In the days when the moors and forests of Southern England stretched practically unbroken from Southampton to Dartmoor, and even possibly to the fringes of Exmoor, wild ponies are believed to have wandered freely over the area. With the advance of civilisation sections of the Forest and moors were cultivated so that the ponies were restricted much more to the areas from which the present-day breeds take their name.
