The Blessing of the Hounds:
Huntsmen Jamie Green leads the hounds at the start of the first hunt of the season after the annual Blessing of the Hounds at Middleton Place Plantation November 25, 2012 in Charleston, South Carolina. Fox Hunting in South Carolina is a drag hunt which doesn’t kill live foxes.
The hunting hounds here are blessed as well, don’t worry! We’re Protestant of course, so it’s a little more subtle.
