FarmWife went sledding at Mt. Baker with her human family today. She saw a man skijoring with his huskies, and it stirred her heart.
I could do that. I have a harness (different kind, but surely workable!), I have enthusiasm, I have tenacity and a tolerance for cold weather! FarmWife says, "now, Fenny, we haven't time for a new hobby." I say, "now, FarmWife, galloping through the drifts beats grinding round the track." If she wants me to burn calories, I'd say slogging through a frozen wasteland would do it!
Here, for the curious, are skijorers in action. (Note that these movies were selected quickly and are not neccessarily the best representations of the sport—FW is rushing me tonight!)
Your fleshy friend,
Bent Barrow Farm
Bent Barrow Farm is NOT a charity. We are not rescued animals — we are family pets. With that said, I will accept gifts of money towards my veterinary care with brayful gratitude. If it is within your means to give, I thank you. ______________________________________ ______________________________________
