Whippets and Greyhounds 4

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 22 September 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Courses de lévriers
Championnat de France 2012
Les lévriers portent un dossard et une muselière obligatoire pour éviter les morsures quand ils se jettent sur le leurre à l'arrivée .
Les whippets ,la plus petite race de lévriers courent à une vitesse de 50-60km/h et les greyhounds à 70_80km/h
Les Barzoï, sloughis ,lévriers afghans n'ont pas assez de concurrents en France .
Cynodrome de Soissons (northern France - Picardie)

C'est spectaculaire, une très belle image avec ce fond sombre. Certaines positions figées sont parfois très drôle. (Le chien noir)
Bon weekend.
