Default Success at pulling the sled!

My sister lives in the mountains - and there's a ton of snow. Hooked the sled to the top of the car, packed the gear, and off Ky and I went to my sister's to practice her mushing.

She did absolutely amazing!!!! I was even able to get behind her and she was still pulling. She had an absolute blast!

I told my sister and BIL that they would have to steer the sled and probably not get on it, depending on how Kyleigh was doing. My 6-year old nephew was riding the sled.

At one point going down hill my BIL was standing on the skis and Ky was pulling both of them. (I kept a very close watch on her to make sure that she was still having fun!)

Getting the harness on her:

*** Removed by ADMIN - Oversized pictures ***

And two of her pulling ...

*** Pics removed by ADMIN due to oversized (are you aware that all these pics are 4000 X 3000?) ***
And of course, there's always ONE scene where she completely forgets what she's doing ...

**** Removed by ADMIN ***

I always have problems with this ... so here's the link to my website for you to see them!

I have them set at 400 x 400 on my website, so don't know why they are so big here!

SORRY Admin, I thought I had done it right this time, but apparently not!

The way you have it set up, the photos are still huge, but your web page displays them at 400 x 400.

Yes, my dogs seem to find the deer poop, and rabbit poop, very quickly.

Thanks Mooch. Yes, I bought just for her. I called a guy I found on the internet and discovered that he custom makes sleds. BUT, I can't afford $500 for a sled LOL so he said he'd look around. He asked me a bunch of questions about her (age, height, weight, etc.) and came up with this one. I paid $200 for the sled, the lines, the harness, a lesson from him and a ride on his sled with his 5 huskies ... now THAT was a ride and a half!
