Suffolk Punch Draft Horse on a Bob-sled.

Winter, our quiet time, is a time we use to keep our horses tuned up, and ready to work as instructors  in our Montana Workhorse Workshops.

We have had snow here at home since mid-December so we get to put the horses on  sleds and sleighs, and in some cases, change out the wheels (for example on the fore cart) for runners.  Here, Doc has Ann, one of our Suffolk Punch Draft horse mares, on a small feed sled.

This sled is great with a small load and a single horse.

We love all seasons in Montana, and especially enjoy Montana’s long snowy winters.  This time of tranquility gives us another  set of opportunities (besides the fair weather and ranch work of summer) to enjoy driving and working  with our horse partners.
