Spring season came and went and like most areas, our hunt country was very wet.  This made maneuvering to follow hounds difficult.  The cool damp weather allowed scenting to be very good however and, on numerous occasions, our pack was in full cry.  The field was up close and personal to the action throughout the season thanks to the skillful handling of the Field Masters.

JamieHunting at Reviresco today was once again filled with wonderful music from the hounds however the pesky quarry hit and swamp and made it very difficult to maneuver and follow.  Pensive and Crocus started the chorus with many of the hounds joining in with their own music and the run was on—or as good as it could be for spring hunting.  A wonderful meal followed headed up by chef Belej who did the main course and Marion, Suzanne and Jordie (desserts to die for) completed the ensemble and a beautiful day was enjoyed by all.  Thanks to Master Killoran who served up stirrup cup to the thirsty mob!! Great to have some new members out today and wonderful to watch them enjoy themselves. There is nothing like the enthusiasm of “newbies”to remind us of why we participate in this great sport.

Adopting a Foxhound

Our pet hound, Lawful (a.k.a. Lawfy) came to us in 2005.  She was about three years old and things were not looking hopeful for her future as a hunting hound: this was the perfect opportunity for her to join our family. 

Let me start by telling you a little bit about her life at our farm.  A very subdued young hound was greeted by Chloë, our rescued Australian Shepherd, on the day she arrived.  These two dogs immediately formed a close bond. Being young and adventurous, they explored their new domain within the bounds of the two acre Invisible Fence around our farm house. Read more…

Beaver Meadow Fox Hounds is fast becoming one of the most respected and known clubs in the hunting world; we should all be very proud.

JamieAs summer blends into fall and fall dips into winter, life at the kennels continues to be an exercise of mixed emotions.  Winter hit us full force with – 20oC (some days below – 30oC with wind chill).  Working with hounds in this weather is paramount to cutting of one’s right hand. It is not a fun task!  In addition to this, every other day, the slaughter house beckons before 6:30 a.m.  I get the delicious task of searching for juicy pieces of dead animals to nourish our hound.  All this makes me ponder, on occasion whatever possessed me to say, “Yes,” to this job?
