THE houndbloggers are in England, not Ireland, this week, but we had to share this beautiful slideshow (with audio) from Ireland’s Waterford hounds. The link below will take you to a photo slideshow in the Irish Times, with commentary from hunt member James Phelan, of a day’s hunting with Ireland’s Waterford Hunt. In addition to the gorgeous photographs of horses, hounds, and the Irish coastal landscape, there is some good audio of the pack, the horn, and the huntsman.
The hounds, Phelan explains, are Old English hounds, and they are black and tan with only a few white markings here and there.
