How does your winter look like !!!
« on: January 08, 2010, 04:57:49 PM »

     Today was a nice day to get the cobwebs off the snow shoes and do something different after pushing snow   ::)

   The trail going up to the bush , really nice with all the new snow cliing to the branches.

 



   These two hemoroids make snowshoing a little diffecult at times ...  ::)  They are sitting/standing/walking on the ends of the snowshoe  >:(  :D

 



  Once in a while ya can get them to fetch a stick and break the trail , but seams like it gets old for them real quick , and they manuver back to the broken trail by you know who ...  :D

 


 
These are the snowshoes I use , these have some history behind them , they have walked to the North Pole from Ward hunt island.
 
 



   My girls where waiting when we got back . Some may remember the colt we had about 18 month ago .. well she grew some .  :D  Mother Mousse to the right and Zo to the left.




   If you have some winter pics you want to share , feel free to put them in with this one .

Marcel, is that an old logging trail you shoe on. Out behind my cousin's place, whom lives 30 miles from here, there is a nice old logging road from the 60's that one of the neighbors keeps open by cutting the windfall out. He has also built other trails on timber company land. He hunts and traps out there and has a camp. Anyway, sure is nice trail he keeps open. When visiting with my uncle a couple times before Christmas I would walk those old trails and roads for half a day. Seemed like 6 or 8 miles way back around there. Was a full morning walk. Did it every day. We haven't a whole lot of snow here, it's settled a lot over Christmas. Been so mild, it's crusty here. Can't wait to get out on the snow sled and bust trail.  ;D You don't look to have a whole lot of snow yet, still can see fence and goldenrod/weeds. ;)

Nice horses. I can understand about the dogs getting in the trail breakers way. :D They ain't stupid, and sometimes they get little snacks, they (each one) just want to be the first to get'm. :D :D

It looks like this.
I haven't had the snow shoes out for a few years there has not been enough snow to bother may be this year.
Nice pics by the way, and who was wearing those shoes when they went to the pole?
Need more info, stop teasing me. :D

Beautiful photos.  It got cold here last night also , below 80.  I sure would like to go ice fishing for a few days.

Nice photos everyone.   Marcel are those chocolate labs?   Jim, I seen a fella in town the other day when it got in the teens that looked a lot like your little buddy. What's his name?
Hilltop, she sure looks like she is having fun in the snow.  Maybe I can get some pics up here in a day to two.

Marcel,

That sure is a lot of snow!  Do you normally have that much?   I like your two snow-shoe weights  :D.

Hemorrhoids fowling your snowshoes :o, that must be offal?  

I prefer X-country skis, waxable and metal edges.  That looks like some nice fluffy snow, I am jealous.  The animals are beautiful.

Marcel, my winter looks like yours, only with more snow and steeper slopes.

I use traditional Algonquin snowshoes, Barb likes the 4' long Alaskan ones.

Our Norwegian Elkhound insists on being out front. Unfortunately for us, his idea of breaking trail in deep snow is to leap ahead. That means alternating patches of deep unbroken snow and  a big hole. That's the reason for the traditional snowshoes ;D.

 Bruce , I have a set of traditional snow shoes also, but , these are so much lighter and easier to manoeuver around trees and they dont get wet and heavy .  ;) It would also mean for me to have too dead beat labs on each one .   :D >:( ::) :D

Yes it is an old logging trail that I have somewhat restored it looks closed in , but it really is not , those limbs where just a little overloaded with ice and snoe , once you hit them with the ski pole , they get out of the way
 
  SD, we have close to two feet so far it is ggod enough for me , just right for shoing
  Hilltop, Richard Weber, a good friend of mine , I have a thread here somewheres about the North pole trip he did with these snowshoes . I like the decorations/lighting you hace on the house ,  :)
  Fish , yes , they are a mix of lab and golden retreiver. In the litter there where two Chocolats , two black and two yellars and a black and white  ::) I took the two chocolats , male/female
  WDH , this is only early January , it will get deeper , but usualy gets to about three feet then comes down , and ocilates between two to three feet . Tom, what could we northerners do with out your help  :P :-\ ;D
  Stephen , ya got that horse where we could see the whole thing , is it yours , whats its name ???
  Jim , do you train those to fetch things for you up in the trees ???
