With enough dogs to satisfy the dog fanatics among us this fine photograph from the Poole Collection shows a hunt about to begin! Mr. J.P. Longfield, Master of Fox Hounds is getting ready to lead the hounds out while in the background his retinue prepare for a days sport. Regardless of ones views on fox hunts such occasions were wonderful photographic opportunities and Arthur Henri nailed this one!
