Boxing Day Meet by ruthmouch

Boxing Day Meet

Boxing Day always includes a short trip to see one of our local huts Meet. Foxhunting is an important part of country life, a beautiful spectacle and certain aspects of it are often misunderstood by some segments of the population. There was an enormous turnout of spectators and we had a very enjoyable hour of fresh air.
it's such a traditional sight - lovely shot of this

Fabulous traditional scene! A lovely specatacle! Drag hunting is a great alternative these days although Harry would have not been keen if the hunt was riding over our wet fields! Ha ha! That’s the only worry we would have!

Interesting shot of a tradition not shared in my world. I love the look of the dogs - as if they own the place, with some frolicking.

I was thihnking how well behaved the dogs look amidst all that. Fabulous POV

The dogs look like they are preparing themselves for the serious work ahead. For the humans though it looks like serious sport. And you'd have serious work to do if you were to persuade me that their job is worthwhile and couldn't be done in any more humane way.

there are lots of people clapping here - obviously in support. I like to see this but can understand where other's views differ!
