Blaston Hound Show Results – 25 June 2017

The show took place on a cloudy day last Sunday.  The long journey from Alnwick to Leicestershire with hounds leaving the kennels at 4am was again well worthwhile.

The Old English Classes, so very kindly sponsored by Baileys Hunting Directory, took place in the morning commencing at 10.30am. The judges this year were Mr R Ogden, huntsman to the Essex and Mr G Watchman, huntsman to the South Durham. 

The Percy Results are as follows:-
Single Unentered Dog Hound:       1st -  Linseed walked by Miss Lisa Chisholm
                                                  2nd - Laser walked by the Bridgeman Family
Couple of Entered Dog Hounds:     2nd - Spender and Spokesman walked by the Morris Family
Best Stallion Hound:                     2nd - Porter walked by Miss Lisa Chisholm

Champion Dog Hound:                  Spender walked by the Morris Family

Single Unentered Bitch Hound:      1st - Liffin walked by Mrs Lynn Walker
                                                  3rd - Lanton walked by Mr David Willie
Couple of Entered hounds:            2nd -Polka walked by the Morris Family
                                                          and Landlady walked by Miss Lisa Chisholm
Brood Bitch:                                2nd - Pocket walked by Miss Lisa Chisholm
                                                  3rd - Posie walked by Miss Aimée Straughan

All in all a very good day, 2 firsts, 5 seconds, 2 thirds and a Dog Hound Championship, all good practice, which is the whole idea of Blaston Show, especially for the unentered  hounds. Blaston Show is so well organised by Mr George Stubbs and his team, it is such a lead up to The Great Yorkshire Show on Wednesday 12 July and the Festival of Hunting at Peterborough the following week on Wednesday 19 July and the Lowther Show on Saturday 12 August.
