'Twas the sound of his horn brought me from my bed

The Sinnington Hunt met this morning at The Wombwell Arms this morning at 11am. It was good to see so many children there who had been taken to see the horses and hounds, a few were mounted. Dawn Otterburn was there with one of her grandchildren on a tiny pony - It doesn't seem long ago that you would see her out with her own children -so nice to see another generation coming along.The horn was blown and off they set through John Richardsons' farmyard and fields,along through ours and into Craykeland woods. They didn't manage to find a fox but stirred 4 deer who we had pleasure in watching from the top of the hill, leave the woods to grace the fields but they seemed quite relaxed about the whole episode.We left then as it was a chill wind and the hounds would be heading eastwards towards Ampleforth College and beyond.
