Another Workplace Scene

The neighbour's sleighride business was busy from morning till night during our snowy season. The top shot is one of the drivers checking the trail after a heavy snowfall.  Their usual trail turned out to be blocked so they made use of another that day.

 

The bottom shot is of a mixture of adults and kids on two sleighs, perhaps a kindergarten class.

 

 ïŽ¼ Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin' 

Monday evening report: There were three sleighs going all day Saturday and Sunday according to sources. Today, there were two sleighs going nonstop. It is a provincial holiday, here Islander Say, some other provinces, Family Day. We had winds of 50 km/hr so the journey was a little brisker than the day shown.
What a great business Mary, I wonder what he does in the summer.
Mary MacADNski: Taken from their FaceBook page: We offer year round fun for the whole family with lots of entertainment options! Sleigh Rides, Wagon Rides, Petting Pen, fire pits, and many more.

I know they have a Halloween Scary Woods event in October too.
What a great way to get around in the snow.
Mary MacADNski: It was the only way to travel in winter at one time.

I reckon business would really boom if there was an icebox on board, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Drinks (hot chocolate and such) are served in the barn after the ride.

A popular activity then
Mary MacADNski: Extremely popular and this spot is not the only such business.
Nice way to travel
Mary MacADNski: I love the sound of the bells.
It's rather a long time since I've seen snow like that in Sheffield!
Mary MacADNski: I think spring is on it's way where you are.
Great fun to ride on I guess but hard work for the horses.
Mary MacADNski: They absolutely love it. Animals that are working animals love to work and thrive on it.

Looks like fun!
Mary MacADNski: It really is. The bells on the horses ring and the sounds from the runners add to the feeling.
Isn't that great! Terrific photo's Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Elizabeth. I did some research and the farm does many, many more things than I mentioned.
