can't believe this, I just hope the shops won't stock it.
Hunting ladies strip for sake of hounds
By Sally Pook
They did not go as far as Lady Godiva — and some may think that was a shame.
Women who like to hunt are not known to pose naked in the stables or behind cake stands. But these are modern times and needs must.
July: Lady Thompson takes a discreet dip in aid of the houndsWhen money was required to help keep the hounds of the Oakley Hunt, the women answered the call and threw off their jodhpurs.
Like Rylstone and District Women's Institute, which made the original semi-naked charity calendar, the Oakley Hunt ladies made strategic use of water troughs, horse's tails and the odd bun to maintain decorum.
"The prospect was daunting, but when we started shooting we just took off our clothes and got on with it," said Lady Thompson, who posed naked in a trough.
The Oakley Hunt was formed by the 4th Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey in 1793. Despite the hunting ban its members continue to go drag hunting within the law and the women shed their clothes for a calendar to raise money to help pay for the upkeep of their hounds.
The Masters of Foxhounds Association was "thoroughly" behind the calendar. "Oooh yes, absolutely," said Alastair Jackson, its director.
