A jolly fine County Show....

Went to Devon County Show yesterday - had a great day.  Lots of pictures to show you but have to start with this... The hunt hounds....sorry, but I don't agree with this 'so called Sport'


My next post will be of the

Better Side of  Country Life!

  1. You mean fox hunting? They still chase after a fox? Don't they just drag a scent through the trail and let the dogs find a treat at the end?

    1. yes, fox hunting plus deer!!! with the fox they chase it to ground until it can't run anymore, then rip it apart!!!! what can I say except to me that ain't no sport. whenever people talk about the pros of it, they say 'oh but you haven't seen how a fox will destroy a coop of chickens', well, to me if that's the only problem then secure the chickens better!!!!

  2. Oh Ann, couldn't agree more. Bloody Conservatives want to scrap the hunting ban (pardon my language)!!!!!!

    1. hear hear!..... trouble is hunting has still continued even with a ban...it'll be no different once the ban is lifted than it has been all along. I think in certain circles, money talks!

    1. ....I think more people see this 'sport' as terrible than those who actually do the hunting, so I can't understand how it continues as it does. like a commented to Eileen 'money talks' !

  4. I though there had been a ban on fox hunting? I remember the horses and hounds driving a stag right through the hedge onto my dad's strawberry fields when I was little, the stag fell down the cliff and swam to Hangman beach.

    1. Yes there is a ban, well certain 'requirements', but they still go on as always!! That must have been awful for you to have seen that poor stag chased like that...just reaffirms how I feel about the 'sport'.
