Sleigh Ride

One of the many perks of living in Pictou County is that people own horses and sleighs....this means sleigh rides!

We headed to Stellarton last night to a friend's farm, hopped in a sled and was pulled around by two GIANT horses. It was great.

Piled in the sleigh

I've learned that blankets and padded seats are key to
enjoying a sleigh ride. Warm bums = smiling faces

I don't know too much about horses, other than they don't have shoulder blades (thank you 3rd year Animal Physiology) so I was SUPER surprised when our sleigh ride was over and the horses were steaming like a pot of boiling water. They were warm horses! Here they are in the barn, I thought they must have been hosed down or something, but they are wet with their own sweat - amazing!
