    Default A sleigh ride...

    This was sent to me, don't know who created it, may be someone here since they live outside of Upperville, but it is just lovely. Enjoy!!!

    Beautiful! Thanks for passing this along.

    Now, how about a reindeer sled ride?

    That was AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. Think it's too late to add a pony and sleigh to my Christmas wish list?

    That was so neat! Even my non-horsey SO watched it with me. Talk about a "Currier and Ives" moment--so cool.

    And Andy the pony is pretty darn neat, too. Looks wonderful for 27.

    I also took a look at her hunt videos. Oh, if only! We have one hunt here in WA and I live 3 hours away. Another wish of mine.

    Smile His Greyness' Christmas Card

    His Greyness was also in his twenties when he took us on a sleigh ride a number of years ago. Baby Belgian hasn't yet learned to drive so I couldn't repeat this with the latest snow, but he likes to play in the snow.

    Hey LaurieP,

    That video was first posted on the off-course forum thread about the recent blizzard. That video just made my holiday season! I simply love everything about it: the scenery, the bells, the ribbons, the fantastically adorable pony, Andy, and the voice of his kind person! Hollywood couldn't have made a more perfect scene. And how 'bout that farm (or is it called an estate in those environs?): gorgeous.

    Spread the wealth and create more warm, fuzziness!

    Awww. I drove carriages for a while for a tourist thing. Awful job but when we busted out the harness bells it really put me in the spirit <33 Adorable video.

    Thanks for finding this and pulling it up again! I had forgotten all about it, but it gives such joy to watch it (and I can use a little joy right now)! I posted it on FB, too, so it will get more exposure and all my Dalmatian friends can enjoy it too. Thanks!

    I saw this when it was orginally posted and saved the link for times when I needed a sentimentality fix.

    Thank you to the OP and Andy and his person.
