Unscheduled meet!

We had a meet here this morning, at very short notice but it was a nice way to start a beautiful Saturday morning, and I think the field and footies appreciated egg and bacon butties and cups of tea at 7am - it woke us all up a bit anyway.

For the first time in weeks it was a stunning, sunny morning - with the bonus of a full moon (or very nearly) last night, which made it so much easier to find the boys at 5am ;-)

As an added bonus, 3 of the hounds out were puppies whom we'd walked last year or the previous year, and they were on terrific form and there were joyful mutual reunions all round.

The horses who weren't hunting did the equine equivalent of watching widescreen tv, standing in the yard where they could get the best view of the Stig and the hounds, and drinking in all the action. Sam had her camera out and took these beautiful photos, so thanks to her - it was definitely a day when Rockley was looking its best!

It was such a special day :-) Maybe you and your boys can come up one day? You'd be very welcome!

Oooh, thank you, I think that would be very fun for Mr T. maybe not Boy the psycho pone though ;-D
I may just be in touch about that at some point!
