Oh my, where have the last 6 months gone. From the last post, Nina gave birth to her beautiful babies. Splinter, Ember and Twiggy live here with us. Hopefully soon they will have their first outing in harness, but just waiting on temperatures and humidity to cool down.
In late December and early January we lost brother and sister Fizz and Jo within one week of each other. It was heart breaking and not a day goes by when we do not think about them.

After much careful thought and consideration we have decided to bred both Nina and Willow 2013/2014.
Nina will be bred to Buddy, owned by Sue Blake & Graham Good (Rykalov). Buddy is a hard worker, great in lead, and has a lovely natured temperment. Buddy has run on Grahams winning 6, 4 and 2 dog.
Nina is a fantastic lead dog, which came from her father Frosty (Brushbows Maroznay), and the great pedigree behind her. She has help teach younger dogs lead, includ...Read Full Post »

This weekend we attended Rondy by Night organised by ABSA.
What a great night, love this trail.
Both Rogers 6 and my 3 dog ran well. Dogs really enjoy this trail.
However, Rogers team did have a few turn issues, so Queenie will be joining my team to learn from Auntie Nina - who is a fantastic lead dog.
Queenie is a young girl, and only started training at a year old (November 2012) She is learning her turns but just needs that added reassurance from Nina wh...Read Full Post »

Well, it seems a little while since I last posted on here.
Three weeks ago Roger and I attended our first race since March 2011. This was Iain Hutchinson Memorial rally held in the Forest of Dean under the ABSA organisation. This was a night rally followed by a morning rally.
Roger ran 6 and had a few issues with turns on the Saturday night, but his Sunday run was much better.
I ran in 4, and borrowed Scarlet from Sue & Graham (Rykalov). What a great fo...Read Full Post »

Well, this is the first time in a very long time, we trained on a Saturday and Sunday.
Have to say it was very interesting and did not go without any issues.
Saturday - Ran 2 threes and 1 four. The two threes just seemed to be the wrong combination, so will be putting them back as they were.
Changing trails each time is quite interesting to see if the girls know their turns or are just taking them as they know the trail. Wel...Read Full Post »

Wow, I know I seem to say this every training session but yet again fantastic runs.
I finally picked up the courage to run four dogs on a 3 wheeled rig (usually run a four wheeler with that number of dogs). But not once twice :D.
My first team consisted of - Willow and Flo in lead, Doyle and Queenie in wheel. Set of and only a few moment on the trail I see another team coming towards us. Fantastic time with head on training. Willow and...Read Full Post »

Finally decided that I had best update the website, with the pups details on the "Our dogs" page.
Also added all of Queenies Show results. She is doing great in the show ring.
We haven't forgotten about the boys. All three pups will be worked in harness once the cooler weather gets here. - roll on colder weather.
The other Snowarriors kids are taking things easy.
Keep checking back for updates.
