with Horse and Hound

Portrait of a Foxhound

Denya Clarke captured this compelling and artistic image of North Cotswold Mousetrap—an English foxhound with aristocratic bearing, royal bloodlines, but perhaps a less than regal name!

Nigel Peel, MFH and huntsman of the North Cotswold tells us she is a star in his pack. We asked about her unusual markings.

“I suspect the colouring comes from her lines to Blencathra Glider and possible from Duke of Beaufort’s Mostyn,” Nigel writes. “Her sister Monday has brown spots. Both are both very good hunters and way back have lines to New Forest Meddig.”
