Wacko Jacko

Our friend Edward has taken both Hector and Charlie hunting over last season and this, but yesterday he truly stepped up to the plate, taking Jacko out in the teeth of hurricane warnings and despite it being a 6.30am start :-)

Although Jacko had been out with Andy several times this month, either the hurricane, the location or a change of rider brought about a deterioration in his manners, and he spent the morning bouncing and fidgeting, although as Edward said, there was no malice in it, just misplaced enthusiasm (!).

Fortunately Edward was calm and unflappable as always, and eventually his attitude filtered through to Jacko - more or less! I wished I'd had the camera out, but if I had perhaps things wouldn't have turned out so well ;-)
