Mu’sits or Musets.
 
Gaps in a hedge; places through which a hare makes his way to escape the hounds.   1
       
“The many musits through the which he goes
Are like a labyrinth to amaze his foes.”
       
Shakespeare: Venus and Adonis.
   The passing of the hare through these gaps is termed musing. The word is from musse (old French), a little hole.   2
