Hickory: December 30

Wishing you a Happy New Year as we roll into 2024!

Following the Christmas storm that started on Sunday & lasted through Wednesday, we spent our time playing in the snow & with the sled on the ground. It's taken Hickory more time to become consistently comfortable with the sled at the start of each day. By the end of our sessions, he's much more comfortable & while I don't have the rope go completely behind him, he's okay with it coming across his hip. Today, Randy was using the wheelbarrow to bring some boxes from the house to the shed & that worried him so we spent some time following him around until that wasn't such a big deal. I'm able to turn her away from the sled & let her feel the rope come across her hip & she's cool as can be. Next week, we'll see if he gives me the green flag telling me he's ready to have me climb aboard yet.

Next week's update will be posted on Saturday.

I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
