Sleigh Ride '11

Also around Christmas, a bunch of us bundled up and went for a sleigh ride. Luckily, there was just enough snow. Our family and friends filled one sleigh pulled by a team of these leggy black Percherons, and behind then you can just see a team of Belgians.



Here most of us are, smiling for the camera,


and here we are in our natural state, which is a kind of constant movement, usually in search of things or people misplaced :)


Here we are, stopped for a breather.


And here we are at the halfway point, stopping for hot chocolate... and hot chocolate with booze in it, for those who didn't bring a thermos of their own.


It's a lovely sight to see two teams of horses parked in the lot of a north woods bar, isn't it? It was nice to get inside and warm up before heading back out for the return trip, which was lit only by the lights on the sleigh.
