The Horn-cry of Buckland, also called the Horn-call of Buckland, was used by the Shire-hobbits in times of danger. The words were recorded as "Awake! Fear! Fire! Foes! Awake!"


Prior to the War of the Ring, it was last used in the Fell Winter when white wolves invaded the Shire. It was used again when Black Riders attacked Crickhollow; Fredegar Bolger escaped the house before they arrived and when he reached the nearest house and the neighbors understood that enemies were present, they sounded the Horn-cry.[1] Meriadoc Brandybuck also blew the Horn-cry, using the Horn of Rohan, when he roused the hobbits of Bywater.[2]
