Steve then led his pack of 18 ½ couples which included five puppies Nightcap, Nimrod, Nimble, Nitro, and Lancer around PM and Phil’s hay field, and back through our farm along to Runyon Mill Road and around a couple of Wielenta's fields. By this time 3 foxes had been spotted by our whips, but none in which our hounds could lock onto. We then turned left along the edge of the newer houses, greeted by waving from some new owners and lapped back on ourselves. Steve F worked the cover and the adjoining fields but Charlie Fox evaded up this time out. What didn’t evade us as mentioned before, were the bombers, quickly tallies were being made of “kills”. I am pleased to say Master Brendan back from his duties at the London Olympics scored gold with 12 zaps, Silver was won by Katie M and bronze is still in contention!
Ok you get the idea it was a little slow going for us riders, but for our hounds they worked their hearts out in the unbelievably hot humid conditions. But after 1¾ hours we were all pleased to drip our way back, hounds to take a bath in our pond and humans to take refreshments which were kindly provided by Jeanne.
Question- where was Lynette?
For those of you not up to Master Brendans Gold winning standard this was your target.
