Adults are boring, no one really cares about full-grown mushers ;) Pee-wees, that's exciting! Requests have been made to see the smallest mushers at our kennel at work. To appease the masses, I present Mushers in Training:
Early season ATV training.
"What do you mean I should be helping mom harness the dogs?!"
"I just run the team. She's my handler."
"Is my team ready?! Cause I am!"
Aren't I cute?! I'm named after a checkpoint in the Iditarod! Rohn.
I'm ready for running dogs on snow with the sled! Let's go!
Gotta have the goggles! Down in the sled you're more likely to get little snowballs kicked up by the dogs
He was very serious about watching his dogs and making sure everything was going right. Very serious faces, unless the dogs were pooping, then, in typical boy fashion, it was hilarious!
I loved having this guy along on runs this season. We talked about a lot of stuff. Mostly which dogs we had with us.
What a view, what a ride!
Running the team with a free runningn leader (Blue) up front.
Unfortunately, Keegan put in all that work with the team but only one person could run the team at the races.
When mom and Keeg would run the dogs, Dad and Rohn (being too young to ride in the sled this season) would ski.
"Are you sure I was too young this year? I could have done it!"
Let's go Slush, we'll start our own team!
