Denya Dee Leake was preparing to exercise her field hunter Fearnought bareback (under blanket), when Promise, her Jack Russell terrier, jumped onto the horse’s back from the mounting block. This wasn’t the first time!

There must be a message there. If you think you know what Promise is thinking, type it into the Comments box. The best quote will receive a gift from Foxhunting Life!

"Whoa, wait a minute, I'm a HUNTING terrier - I'm going with you.... huh, this isn't hunting attire? How about tomorrow? Would tomorrow work for you?"

If you don't move, you'll get a cookie and I'll get a biscuit.

Fear says he hates his blanket too. Pleeaase take it OFF!

"Mount up fair Lady Denya and Fearnought, and I..."Promise" to escort you on a thrilling ride in the hunt."

You all put some creative thoughts and words into Promise's mouth! However, John Wilkoski's entry got the most "likes," so he gets the prize. Thanks to all who played the game!

John, please email your postal address to me. You may have your choice of either the 2012 Foxhunting Life Calendar or a CD of traditional foxhunting songs collected by the late Alexander Mackay-Smith. (The horse and terrier in the photo belong to his step-granddaugh ter!)
