Short blog, great day

After a lay off of nearly 3 weeks, the gang were back doing what they love, and went hunting today - Bailey, Felix and Charlie, all absolutely thrilled to be out again, and on a perfect day - blue skies, no wind, sunshine, mild temperatures, and everyone - hounds, horses and riders - on top form.

One of those special days when Exmoor looks even more beautiful than usual, and when you can be out on your horse all day and not even feel cold once :-) We had a marvellous time and a good fast day - like the horses, the hounds seem not to have noticed that they've had a break, except to come back if anything fitter and keener than before.

So just over 21 miles on the GPS, and fingers crossed that the weather stays on our side - for a while at least!

It's starting to sound tempting! :-)

On a day like yesterday there's no finer place to be :-)

Paul and Ghost have just got back from a 5 mile yomp round the roads and tracks - he;s nearly fit enough for a short, quiet day :-)

OK, you've convinced me. Lets aim for a short QUIET day before he leaves! :-) you'll have to let me know what hunting attire is acceptable for both of us, I think we're both lacking in that department :-D

Given the weather down here, all you need is waterproofs in blue, green or black :-) I will look for a suitable day :-) :-) :-) !!!!
