MEDICINE-VETERINARIAN FOR HORSES

TURPENTINE AND LARD HAVE BEEN USED BY THE VETERINARIAN OF
FARMINGTON HUNT CLUB OF CHARLOTTESVILLE: THE LARD KEEPS THE

A WAY OF TAKING A NAIL OUT OF A HORSE'S HOOF AND POURING

ENTERTAINMENT AND CUSTOM OF FOX HUNTING

AN INTERESTING POINT OF FOX HUNTING IF A CATCH IS MADE, WHICH IS
ACTUALLY NOT TOO OFTEN. IF A BIGINNER IS IN THE FIELD, THE BLOOD
OF THE FOX IS SMEARED ON THE PERSON'S CHEEK. SIVER FOXES ARE THE
MOST PRIZED OVER RED OR GRAY. THE INFORMANT HAS BEEN HUNTING FOR
ABOUT SIX YEARS AND IS TWENTY TWO YEARS OLD. ONLY A FEW OCCASIONS
HAVE THEY CAUGHT MORE THAN ON FOX A DAY, AND THE USUAL HUNT IS
ALL DAY.

FOX HUNTING RULES

THE RULES FOR THE SPORT ARE UNDERSTOOD AS SAFETY, MANNERS, AND
COURTESY:
DON'T TALK WHEN THE HOUNDS ARE WORKING BECAUSE THE HUNTSMEN
CAN'T HEAR THE DOGS.
IF YOU ARE NEW, STAY IN THE BACK, BECAUSE IT TAKES A WHILE TO
LEARN WHAT'S GOING ON.
DON'T RIDE SOMEONE'S TAIL, ESPECIALLY INTO A FENCE. LEAVE SOME
STOPPING DISTANCE IN CASE OF A FALL.
THE HOUNDS HAVE THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AT ALL TIMES--THEY ARE WHAT
YOU ARE FOLLOWING.
CLOSE GATES WHEN THE HORSES HAVE ALL GONE THROUGH, BECAUSE IF
SOMEONE'S COWS ARE LEFT OUT, IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE HUNT CLUB
WILL NOT USE THAT LAND AGAIN UNTIL AN APOLOGY IS GIVEN.
IF THE FOX'S PATH IS THROUGH SOMEONE'S FIELD, GARDEN, OR YARD,
BYPASS IT WITH THE RISK OF LOOSING THE FOX TEMPORARILY.
