You Might Be a Foxhunter If…

John Harris AndersonJohn Anderson, writer/editor/foxhunter  /   Douglas Lees photoIt’s been said that a “highbrow” is someone who can listen to Rossini’s "William Tell Overture" and not think of the Lone Ranger. In the hunting world, that might be said of anyone who’s never heard of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You Might Be A Redneck” jokes. Leader of the Blue Collar Comedy genre, Foxworthy’s shtick consists of such gems as:

If you can recognize your friends by the sound of their mufflers, you might be a redneck.

If your school fight song was “Dueling Banjos, …”

If you’ve ever cut your grass and found a car, …”

If you refer to the sixth grade as “My senior year, …”

Borrowing from this concept, herewith are a few examples of “You Might Be A Foxhunter.” (Some of these apply to horse people more broadly, but all of them apply to foxhunters.) So here we go.
