...yesterday to the top job on Exmoor - the huntsman's horse :-)
He has had this honour once before, on another unexpected occasion, and he clearly enjoyed himself being in pole position with "his" hounds all day(!). The huntsman said he was a very good boy, and as an extra special treat he even got to ride home in the hunt lorry :-)
The only problem was that Felix was, according to Richard, mightily unimpressed with Charlie's promotion. Felix is the undisputed king-pin at Rockley and if anyone was going to be the huntsman's horse it should, in his opinion, have been Felix...However as he also got a trip back in the lorry it wasn't all bad, and they both had gigantic teas when they got home.
