1 | Hounds went out 123 times last season.
2 | One litter whelped in 2017, the 'A' litter by Old Chatham Myers and NT Mischief. The Z litter hounds are working well and are "entered" hounds.
3 | The drafted puppies are hunting regularly, Old Chatham Myers, Newbury and Nutmeg; and from Middletown Valley, Jingle.
4 | Weekly summer walk-outs (followed by mimosas and muffins!) were part of the training and exercise program.
5 | At the summer party, after hounds greeted guests, renowned veterinarian Dr. Scott Dove, MFH, explained handling hounds (and dogs) in emergency situations and in the hunt field.
6 | We participated in the trials at Aldie, maintained the N-T B cabin, and paraded the hounds at the Blue Ridge Hunt point to point races.
7 | As usual, the annual fundraiser and dinner at the Millwood Club was a pleasant evening and generated funds to cover the season.
8 | We published the third Huntsman’s diary, a gift to subscribers and supporters, for a third season. Mr. Mitch Zetlin painted this year's over, "Tally ho, and away we go!" The National Sporting Library and Museum added the three diaries to their collection.
9 | N-T B continued the Adopt a Highway program on Westwood Rd. and collected over 41 bags of trash.
10 | Articles about the NTB and beagling were published in three local newspapers.
