COLOUR WORKS: MY BRITISH ARCHIVE THE 1980S AND 90S

West Bagborough, Somerset. 1997<br />
Tally-ho, she’s blowing a hunting horn at the Quantock Staghounds end of season annual hunt ball held at Bagborough House. The competition requires that you blow a variety of Calls; Moving off, Gone to ground and Blowing for home. <br />
The Calls can indicate that the huntsmen and hounds are moving off, and the days hunting begins. There are different Calls to tell The Field exactly what is happening, out front and often out of site. Blowing for Home, blown at the end of the hunting day, is a long, mournful wail and the most complicated call. Some huntsmen have sounded this call in a special & extended way at the end of the season.
