We finally hitched our new sleigh up this past Sunday and went for a drive. It was fun! I had never been on a sleigh ride before at all so I was really having a blast. We probably have about 6 – 8 ” of snow so it was pretty deep off the beaten path. Of course this time of year, in our country, it’s hard to keep a horse in good shape for that much physical exertion without an indoor arena. We hooked up our stallion, D&S Tom Collins, as he always has an exuberant amount of energy, literally. He hadn’t been hitched in over a year and he did a great job. He took to pulling the sleigh like he was an old pro! The only drawback was that we forgot to attach the sleigh bells so we missed all the musical notes. 🙂 I think there will be lots more sleigh rides in the future & I can even see red bows and maybe a gentleman in a red suit before next Christmas.
