A Feast for Crows

Ser Jaime Lannister leads his force past Sow's Horn. He meets with Ser Roger Hogg, the head of the household, who tells him that during the War of the Five Kings he was attacked by lions (Lannister men under the command of Ser Amory Lorch) who attempted to burn Sow's Horn. There was further fighting at Sow's Horn when the Hoggs were attacked by white star wolves (Karstark men in search of Jaime). Roger shelters six men-at-arms, four crossbowmen, and a score of peasants in his towerhouse.[1]

Behind the Scenes

Sow's Horn may be a reference by George R. R. Martin to the story Three Little Pigs. The earth and timber halls of the brothers Wode are burned down by raiders, but the stout stone of Sow's Horn resists Amory Lorch.
