breaking trail

Some pictures from one of our last training runs before the Sheep Mountain 300. 2 feet of new snow, fresh trail & a bit of sunshine made for a really nice, fun run. I was proud of how well the dogs did in the deep snow... good honest workers, the whole lot. I had Robber in lead with Ruby. He is a Kozy son and always impresses me with his good cheer & work ethic. He has not had much experience in lead, but from what I can tell---he loves it! He seems like a natural leader... very forward oriented, automatically lines out. When I stop and make my way up to the front of the team, he jumps up for a hug, happy in the moment.
