JHB Hunt review – 22 May

It is definitely colder and darker than last time!!
Once again we had a couple of first timers… with about 45 hounds in total!!

We were without our usual huntmaster and whistle blower, so, thanks to Jane for stepping in to lay all the lines!!

We welcomed Dudley and his family for their first hunt – hopefully we’ll see them again!

Jo-Jo was back again – and clearly very exhausted πŸ˜‰

Joey (who was rescued via this site) came along for his first meeting with the pack!

Beagle brothers Billy & Ben:

Beagle brothers Denver & Duke:

AnnaBella came along for her very first hunt! Hope to see you back next time!

Waiting around between lines:


Blake has a new bib and he and his family took some time to have alittle R&R in the veld πŸ˜‰

The grass in parts of our valley has been burnt, so it was very black and very dusty – but at least it’s easier to see the hounds!

There is still a lot of long grass though! (remember to protect against ticks and fleas please!!)

Horatio was there too – we can;t wait to meet his little sister, Callie!

We met another Lucy – hopefully she will hunt as well as our other Lucy, who won the Top Ten challenge last year!!

And Storm… who gave us all a bit of a scare, when she disappeared from the pack, and went on her own adventure!! Our search & rescue party really got their exercise scouting the mountains for her!! We found her, and she was very glad to be back with her family!

And of course, the morning ended with pilchards for the beagles!

Well done to all the beagles! πŸ™‚
