jimmy young.doug leesDouglas Lees photoFoxhunting lost one of its most notable Masters of Foxhounds with the passing of James L. Young, age seventy, on Friday evening, May 25, 2012.

Urbane, articulate, literate, trim and handsome both on and off the horse, Jimmy Young did everything with a flair, whether leading his field, presiding over the Virginia Foxhound Club Show, writing or speaking on his favorite topic---foxhunting as a noble art form.

Master Young was the dean of etiquette and turnout. Always a perfect example.

Thank you Norm, for that moving tribute to a great gentleman, leader, foxhunter, writer, and wryly amusing humorist. Douglas Lees photographs were a lovely coda.

Master Young was incredibly kind to this brand new huntsman at her first puppy show. His anecdotes stick with me to this day. Godspeed Master Young,

I hunted behind Jimmy many times with Orange County and enjoyed every outing regardless of the weather. Sally and I got "lost" on a hunt at one point. We had gotten turned around in a part of a field neither of us recognized and we just sat there and laughed. Jimmy was such a wonderful hounds-man and studied the breeding making sure that the Orange County hounds lines continued. The pictures are wonderful and I hope that more will post remembered stories here for all to enjoy.
