2017 Highlights

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.
