Another Use for the Hunt Whip

A new use for a hunting whipWhile hunting with the Old Dominion Hounds on school break, Denya Dee Leake's horse came into a fence offstride and took care of the situation by catapulting itself over, launching Denya Dee skyward.

“I went so high I could look down towards the ground and think, ‘Oh god, this is going to hurt!’” said Denya Dee.

It looked as if she may have broken her wrist, so they stabilized it with her hunt whip as a splint and secured that with a member’s necktie and the whip thong. Another necktie provided the sling. Fortunately, she had just given a her thumb a bad sprain.

[We’ve all read time and again how a stock tie may be used as a bandage in the hunting field, but I never heard of a hunt whip as a splint. Good to know!  -Ed.]

Pet Fox?

Whipper-in and pet fox out for a stroll? Not really. To capture this intriguing image, photographer David Norman used a long lens which foreshortened the perspective. The fox, he says, moved out smartly!

Loving His Summer Job

Buzzy’s parents—Drs. Phoebe and Rush Fisher—arrive by trailer with horses and ponies for the rest of the family and join Buzzy and other hunt members on the morning hound walks through their beautiful Unionville hunting country.

Puppy Show Exclusive!

With privacy now a quaint relic of the recent past, we paparazzi can tune into intimate conversation wherever we wish. Recently our hidden camera and super-sensitive parabolic microphone caught Toronto and North York huntsman Antony Gaylard and his favorite hound Barter in an unguarded moment.
