While rabbit were not abundant there were plenty but scenting condition were far from ideal Hot, and breezy with little cloud cover and no rain for day ground was very dry on saturday and sunday No solo's qualified ( ran 6 Saturday, 5 sunday), Only one brace Qualified ( ran 9 sunday and 9 saturday), There were two Packs one of which is ours and the other consisting of all grand champions the First pack qualified and In ours Eowyn and Hermione qualified

Sunday was even worse as far results no solo The same brace would have qualified on Sunday but each dog got their titles on saturday so sundays run did count for anything. Two out of the Four on the First Pack Qualified and our Modified and Improved pack consisting Of Eowyn, Hermione, their Mom Leila and Macey, may have set a Record for Most Bunnies Produce ever in a single hunt test session at 5. But that is not a good a thing as one might think. Hunt test usually conclude when the dogs prove they can run a line(the scent trail the bunnies leave behind) Unfortunately all the bunnies they produced except one were tea cup size or smaller. ie tiny and with little scent. The one large rabbit they produced was the result of the split and they went with the tiny one and lost it soon after. Even though Eowyn was on fire producing bunnies she and the rest of the pack did not run a line well enough to qualify on Sunday.
