Robert M. Six, a lifelong equestrian with a renowned and contagious passion for hunting, horses and hounds, died Tuesday in a Forest Hill nursing home of congestive heart failure. The longtime Fallston resident was 94. Mr. Six worked as a groom, was a devoted fox hunter, participated in and judged hound and horse shows, founded a jousting club, loved to watch horse races, and kept horses and up to 20 hounds at a time on his small farm in Fallston. Long after he was able to fox hunt or attend races -- indeed, until the day he died -- he would ask friends and family detailed questions about recent equestrian events.

Worlds converged yesterday, as they do every year, at Roedown Farm in southern Anne Arundel County. At least three Rolls-Royces motored over the soggy grass, but so did muscular pickups. Folks in cashmere sipped champagne, while those in jeans hoisted cups of cheap beer. The diverse crowd mingled easily at the Marlborough Hunt Races, a 27-year-old spring tradition where tailgating ranks with the steeplechase competition, in which thoroughbreds leap over fences. "It's an interesting mix of people," said Jeff Smith, as he sat on a blanket with a box of pretzels, a scone's throw from platter after platter of catered delicacies.

The Twin Rivers Sportsman's Club has been around since 1973, hunting the same leased tract in Somerset County for all that time. Members, most of them from the Baltimore area, have done a first-rate job keeping their 900 acres neat and their hunting activities safe. But on Wednesday, Twin Rivers, along with about 40 other clubs with Eastern Shore land leased from the state, will be evicted. To say the majority of the 1,700 hunt club members are upset would be an understatement. "We keep it up. We keep the roads passable.

FIRST OF ALL, fox hunting is really fox chasing. Rarely is a fox caught and killed in the cross-country pursuit of hounds and horses. The hunters and their pack do not dig out a fox from its den, or "earth" as it is called, once it has found shelter.Robert Taylor has been huntsman (hunt leader) of the Goshen Hounds Hunt Club in Maryland for more than three years. He learned from his father and grandfather, who were skilled huntsmen in his native Ireland, so he knows more than a bit about the subject.

And then he began blessing hounds before a hunt.No deer were to be seen in Glyndon yesterday, but plenty of Jack Russell terriers, Labradors, and bassets were gathered.Dozens of people braved the cold yesterday to participate in the pious practice of blessing the hunt at St. John's in the Valley Episcopal Church.Founded by St. Hubert -- the patron saint of hunters -- during Good Friday hunts, the ceremony has become a 104-year Thanksgiving tradition in the area.
