The fabled American foxhound who, along with his get, cornered the silver market in North America has passed on. Potomac Jefferson 2005 was the MFHA Centennial Grand Champion Foxhound at both the 2007 Virginia Foxhound Show and the Bryn Mawr Hound Show one week later.

That year, 2007, marked the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Masters of Foxhounds Association. The entire year was filled with special exhibits, competitions, and events all across the country, attracting large and enthusiastic crowds of foxhunters, horses, and hounds. The classes of all the hound shows were swelled with the best examples of foxhounds that could be mustered, along with their supporters. The year 2007 was a big deal.

A great salute to an outstanding hound who was as much a champion in the hunt field as he was in the show ring. Thank you, Norman.

Thank you, Norman. Jefferson was a pleasure to hunt behind. He was very steady with plenty of drive, always business like, never a problem. He hunted for 9 seasons & part of a 10th. Rarely lame, he missed very few days.

Jefferson was one of the greats. I know the Pitts family feels his absence greatly. He left a wonderful legacy with his progeny.
