Christmas Day Husky Mushing

We haven’t been out training for at least week due to the snowy weather conditions closing our training grounds. Snow is great, but it closes roads and makes trees fall down over trails.

After a late start to the day, we took the dogs out for a training run on some very frozen trails.We split the team up and ran two teams of two; Mookie with Benny and Basil with Snowy.

The frozen trails were very uncomfortable. vehicle tyre treads were frozen into the trails, making it a real bone shaker of a run.

It’s been some time since I’ve run a two dog team and I really missed the extra power  a third (and fourth) dog gives you.

We both relied on our Sorel Caribou boots to keep our feet toasty warm.
