Hi everyone unfortunatly due to the out break of foot & mouth coursing clubs have taken the decision not to course this weekend untill things are clarified and the deseas contained. this is a decision taken by coursing club Commitees and NOT as stated yesterday in the media that the Government were stoping clubs from running.

this just goes to show that coursing people DO care about the countryside and the farmers who's good will all clubs rely on.

It's a shame as it'd have been a nice day for it.

We haven't had any snow in Hereford either, although they keep telling us there will be some.  It is forecast for snow here again tonight, so who knows :confused:I do feel very sorry for the farmers, :sad:  but very relieved that this awful virus doesn't affect our dogs.   :)
Hi June   I think we all echo your comment about us being lucky that this awfull deseas does not affect dogs. but dogs can carry the virus from farm to farm on their coats and all owners need to be aware of this and stay away from farms to allow time for this to be contained.

The farming community have enough problems so I ask all dog owners to refrain from walking their dogs near farmland to help protect our countryside till this deseas is contained.

this does go to show though that Hunt, Coursing clubs ect DO care about the countryside enough not to carry out their sports till this matter is resolved.
