Robert McCarthy: Time off? What’s that? *H&H Plus*

Opinion

With Christmas just around the corner, all hunt kennels and stables will be getting ready for two of the biggest and busiest weeks of the season.

I always smile to myself when people ask how much time we get off at Christmas. The answer for me and most huntsmen, whippers-in, grooms or kennelmen is very little or none. Hounds and horses still need looking after and flesh rounds don’t stop for Christmas.
