Ohio race and training

In addition to the Rig Rondy, we also attended the Farmpark Challenge again this year.  I love the venue for this race.  The people are always friendly and helpful.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any pics of me and the team this year, but got some good starting chute pics of other racers and of Princess:

We again came in 7th in the class (is this a theme this year?), but had the fastest purebred team time in the 4 dog class.  Yay Team Wyrd!

Since then we've been doing some training runs, as we spent way too much on Christmas.  Hoping to get to some snow races later this year, but without time to train on snow (snow?  what snow?), I'm not very optimistic regarding our ability to race on a sled.  I'm only hoping to stay on it and not get myself or the dogs injured.

The one great thing that has come out of this is that I've finally had the chance to get Cowboy out with the team, and the boy is a natural!  He's a little nervous when we get him out on the gangline, but once we take off, he is hauling hard on the tug the whole way with the biggest grin you've ever seen on a sibe.
