The Blessing of the Hounds

Saturday morning we went to the Blessing of the Hounds. This was our second time going. The first time we went, we were late and missed the priest giving the blessing but were able to stay and watch the hunt. This time we made it in time for the blessing but because of the cold we weren't able to stay for the hunt. Shaker village is picturesque and then you throw in 50 beautifully manicured horses and riders dressed to perfection, it makes for a beautiful morning.

 They naturally stood youngest to oldest.

 The Wirigs- Little Brigham in his car-seat.

Annie walked around taking pictures of the horses..."Mere, Horsies! Cheese Horsies!"

And they're off to find the fox
