What an exciting start to 2016 here at Keahi! Since the completion of our first Mid-Distance race in West Yellowstone in December we've been keeping on the trails training for the next race.
Our next adventure took us to Chemult Oregon, where after a 2 year hiatus the Chemult Sled Dog Races were up and running again thanks to a dumping of snow! Our runs were very consistent between the two days. Heavy wet snow fell on us both days, though the weather man called for rain (we happily tolerated the snow!) Deep, heavy, punchy snow covered our trails, and overall we had a great time and really could not be more pleased with how the dogs did! Keegan was back in lead with Mason and the whole team worked seamlessly together.
Once back from Chemult it was time to literally ring out all the equipment. That heavy wet snow soaked us all! Thank goodness for extra straw on the truck to keep the dogs dry and comfortable!
It was back to the trails after a few days of rest and relaxation for us all...But with Priest Lake just around the corner, we didn't want to take too much time off!
The biggest news of the month is the arrival of our latest addition to the team and to the family! We like to welcome, from NorthWapiti Siberians, NorthWapiti's Who Knew "Google"! We are absolutely thrilled to have this amazing opportunity to add this lovely girl from Karen Ramstead!
Google is a young female with a start in leader training, Karen says she's still got some of that young easily distracted. We look forward to continuing honing that natural talent with her as she helps our team continue to grow. Karen describes her as fast and driven with a bit of goofy that she gets from both of her parents. We so look forward to getting to know this girl at home and in harness. Look for her in our team at upcoming events!
Growing up in Montana my love of the Siberian Husky started at a young age. It has been quite a journey so far. There has been much to learn and still a lot more yet to learn! I truly believe that we are never too old, too experienced, or too full of ourselves to learn something new. I also believe that knowledge is useless unless we are willing to share it with others.
