Thomas was excited for this eventful day ahead of him. It was time for the annual fox hunting challenge and he, his horse, Trigger, and his two favorite hunting dogs were ready. They're names are Sam and Henry. They have been practicing all year to get where they are now. It's finally that time, they are at the starting line, the foxes are released, and the guns sound. Off the dogs go! The dogs immediately get a scent. They follow it to the mouth of the foxes den. The dogs are barking at it viciously. They stay at it for 2 hours. When they started to see they wasn't going to have any luck, Thomas cuts his losses. Nobody got a fox that day, although it was great training for Sam and Henry. They would go on to win all the challenges they enter after that.
