Thread Name: What are jubal hounds?
Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
I agree with Nerd - the OED explanation seems to fit the bill perfectly and joyful or jubilant hounds holds good in the context. All a bit academic here in the UK as from Feb 18th there will be no fox hunting with hounds be they ducal, jubal or joyful!! Wonder if there's an archaic term for redundant hounds.....
