More Snow but fun

The hugging donkey. Chemmy loves to be cuddled.

Bob and I coming around the barn. It was so fun.

The two "old folks" having fun.

Out on our "road" through the snow. I will have to make some changes to the harness. The tugs (the straps that connect Rosie with the sleigh) are too long and the shaves (the long wooden pole like things that she is in between) are not up where they belong. It has worked yesterday and today but is not as comfortable I know. And the over check broke. The over check, actually she has a side check bridle is the part of the bridle that hooks on the the saddle(the part that goes around her body) to keep her from being able to put her head down. Not a necessity but it makes her hold her head better. It was snowing today so the sleigh did not slide as easily as it did yesterday.

Chemmy and Yuma. If I had appropriate harnesses, I would teach them to drive.

Rusty. Have not posted a picture of her for a while.

My flying dog. He bounces along so funny. Missed his ears flying this time.
One of the reasons I had to sled out today, other than its fun, is a friend of Katie's is fighting breast cancer. She lives in the area and wanted to ride in the sleigh really bad. So she got her ride. She had chemo yesterday and had a hard time getting in and out but I was so happy to make her day brighter.
Other than that, we had fun with Cameron and Katie and our neighbor Theresa. Love it when people come by.
Not a whole lot going on. It is supposed to rain tonight and I hate that. It makes things so sloggy and messy. Then one digit cold again and more snow.


  1. Oh my gosh - you've got a sleigh!!!??? One of my lifelong dreams is to ride in a horse-drawn sleigh...hang on, I'm on my way!!!! (kidding) NOT!! I've missed you too, just have been devoid of the ability to write...poor excuse, I know. But, I'm going to try and post more often as it helps my spirits, and I miss people like you!! Thank you for not giving up on me my friend!!!! God Bless you too!! Thank you. :)

  2. Gotta run and pick up my hubby, but will be back next week and will catch up on some reading here. Bye for now!!

  3. Lorie, if it were possible to get to the reater Spokane area we could have a plast on the sleigh. It is a Portlad Cutter that seats 2.It has rained two days now but more snow is coming.
