Huntsman Mick Wills right in his 16th season with the Grafton Hunt leads the hounds at Whittlebury Golf Club this morning, the traditional Boxing Day meet could not be held on a Sunday. (There is no hunting on a Sunday).
Easton Neston near Towcester normally provides the venue for this very popular event, but the hunt decided to relocate to The Atrium at Whitlebury because of snow.
The hounds looked very impressive as they came up to the clubhouse.
The recent weather has devistated sporting fixtures with the loss yesterday of Towcester Races and country pursuits including hunting and shooting have also been affected.
The wind made it feel cold today, although in was about +2C which seems quite warm compared to yesterday's -7C.
