At Farnley, in White Post, Virginia, we had the pleasure of hosting the largest group of Cleveland Bay foxhunters in recent years on Saturday, November 16.
Many friends and followers came out to see them off, and with the sun shining brightly, we got a lot of photographs to remember this wonderful day.
Within moments after our huntsman, Guy Allman, moved off with the hounds, a fox was viewed for all the hilltoppers to see, and photograph as he went up the fence line to then disappear over the hill. Later on, we viewed a rather good size coyote near a round bail in a pasture next to a corn field in which the hounds were later cast, and luckily, we got photos of him too.
Many of you know Liz Callar, one of the best professional photographers around. She can sprout wings at a moment’s notice to get to the coup on time, and took lots of photographs of the meet. Visit her website, www.LizCallar.com, for her photographs.
Blue Ridge Hunt member Nancy Kleck posts the photos she takes on The Blue Ridge Hunt Share Site on Shutterfly.com, while traveling with Chris Howells, our wheel whipper-in extraordinaire (go to the very last few photographs, he’s in the back of the truck!). Email Nancy Kleck to be added to the Shutterfly email list and she’ll send you back an invitation from Shutterfly. Once you’ve signed up, go to your share page and you’ll see the Blue Ridge Hunt. If you have any problems, please contact Nancy. These photos are free to download onto your PC, or order prints through Shutterfly for all to enjoy! Lots of scenic shots and tiny little riders, but if you scan down the entire lot, you’ll see a good bit of the hunting!
Thank you all for hunting with the Blue Ridge today at Farnley. We hope you had a great time and will come back soon!
