liveoakhannibalGrand Champion Live Oak Hannibal 2009 (Live Oak Hasty '06--Their Asset '03)   /  Jim Meads photoThe sixth annual Southern Hound Show, held on April 28, 2012 at Live Oak Plantation, Monticello, Florida was once again blessed with perfect weather. Ten packs from as far away as Tennessee and Palm Beach competed under the watchful eyes of Richard Sumner, MFH of the Heythrop Hunt in England and Dennis Foster, Executive Director of the MFHA. Robert Ferrer, MFH of the Caroline Hunt was apprentice judge.

English, American, Crossbred, and Penn-Marydels all show in one ring against each other. As there are two Crossbred rings at the Virginia Foxhound Show (based on number of hounds in kennel), this is the only occasion that Fox River Valley, Live Oak, Midland, and Mooreland go head to head in every class.

A reader asked what is meant by "tail male" and "tail female."

Tail male is the top line of a pedigree – all the sires and sires of the sires going back through the generations.

Tail female is (you guessed it) the bottom line of the pedigree – all the dams and dams of the dams going back.

Many breeders feel these lines are the most influential contributors to the traits of the offspring, as opposed to the many relatives that populate the middle spaces of the pedigree.
