That looks so fun MIE! |
I really want to go on a hunt within the next year if I head off to the east coast.
It is an absolute blast Strange! If you are ever in my neck of the woods, you should totally join us :)
MIE, I adore you & Nelson. Looks like you had wonderful fun on the hunt! Did they do the traditional giving away of the tail and ears? I think the practice is outdated now, but I would like to get something from a hunt one day :) |
Thank you kmacdougall! *hugs* I adore Nelson so much, I am glad he has admirer's :) :)
No passing of ears and tail - they don't do live kills anymore. But the chases are a blast none-the-less :) If you are in my area, I would love to take you out with the group :) I am sure they'll hand you a flask...that's for sure :) I drank pretty well yesterday, especially since it was quite chilly out. I drank some Irish Baily's Cream..mmmm...and I was handed a flask of rum..oh, that one got the back of my throat...and some wiskey..lol.
No wonder why I had a great time! HAHAH!
I can send you some bumper stickers :) :P
Oh I would love to go on a hunt! Super jealous. Looks like a lot of fun, especially with a sassy horse |
Amir, it is absolutely wonderful! When you see how extactic those hounds are when they get let out of their kennels, and how they group around their Head Huntsman and their Whipper-In's....it puts a lump in your throat! Especially when the Whipper-In's and the Head Huntsman start blowing their horns! That' when the excitement trickles through your veins!
Nelon's ears perk up, and he starts chomping on the bit when those horns blow. He LOVES this sport as much as I do! And he shows it...lol. Everyone was laughing at us yesterday, it was a hoot!
