What a joy…to share the snowy winter beauty with creatures of such excellence.  Watch as the horses are made ready for the bob sled.  Let’s set off to the paddock….

Karin & Bill are about to take the Bob Sleigh for it’s maiden ride this season.  There are usually a few little things to work out involving horse or sleigh equipment.  Today, the sleigh was frozen to the ground.
