Cumberland

Merry Christmas everyone =)

I hope this finds everyone healthy and ready for some relaxing time away from work.

We hunted on Saturday from our Cumberland country and although we didn’t view any coyotes, we had a great time =)

Huntsman Dave and Bre always do their utmost to bring joy and fun to each and every hunt.

We have dressed up for Veterens Day, Halloween, Ugly Sweater Day, St. Patrick’s Day and yesterday was Christmas Day.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were there

along with Santa’s helpers

Alabaster Snowball (Holly B), Sugerplum Mary (moi), Skinny Upatree (Brit V-G)

Pepper Ministix, (Jubilee M) texting orders to the elves back at the North Pole

We had around 30 people, between staff, riders and road crew. We rode in some different territory, which was fun to see.

The hounds saw some deer. They were very naughty and they won’t be getting any presents this year. Probably some coal in their stockings….

One of the whips was running full throttle, when on a sharp turn the girth on her reindeer slipped. Santa’s helper hit the ground and skidded.

One of Santa’s elves picked her up and met up with Dancer who had caught Vixon, fixed the harness and all was well. End of story.

Actually, the field stopped three times to enjoy the whoppee wagon and then End of Story.

Thank you Kate for the interesting information!

MFH Monte and Diane, Jay and Camie provided a scumptious brunch. Chilli, bread (I had three slices with butter and honey), crossiants, tortilla soup (mmm, good! ), chips and brownies.

Please don’t forget Huntsman Dave and Professional Whip Bre this coming Boxing Day.

Looking for an idea?

Amazon Smile =)  Cash is always a welcome gift. Gift cards to a fun place to eat. Hand warmers, foot warmers. If you’re short on cash, how about offering to do some work around the kennels. Spring will be here in 87 days and the flower beds will need sprucing up. A group gift: pitch in for a night away and do chores in the morning.

Thank you Holly Barrett, Kim Hughes, Jenny Wheatley and Kate Kaminsky-Murphy for the use of your pictures.

Have a wonderful, blessed, fun filled Christmas.
