This was my Canada family . I saw this and thought of Winter in a horse drawn sleigh seemed the right time to post. Early 1900's In Sask.

    Thank bellin this reminds us of how cold it was to travel in remote areas back then. And they would travel many miles to get to a town .
    Thanks for the love !

    Dogs always seem to find a way to get into the photos :) Now people whine if they don't have heated seats in their cars.

    I thought I would bring up my old post on horse drawn sleigh . This was how my ancestors traveled in winter in their small town in Canada . I was looking at other post of sleigh . I am feeling lucky I have so many old family photo's :-)

    Thanks Bro ,so many of my old photo's are losing their color I am hoping to save some before you can't see them . I darkened this one on PC it is very pale . But I also love it and thought it would show front of sleigh well for recent posting :-) xoxo

    I brought my Canada family back up Bro . I think yours had it better :-)
  10. walksoftly walksoftly, 10 months ago
    They had these as well, but the other were better in bad conditions, or for a large family to travel together.
    My mother remembers riding in a sleigh up front at her Grandfathers feet buried under robes & blankets to stay warm.

    No heater in these Bro to keep your feet warm :-) Darn Canada weather coming down here to freeze us out . Alaska is warmer .

    I think this cold weather is coming straight down from the North Pole, better put another log on the fire Sis :-)

    It's warming up, the temp now is -14°F, with the wind -36°F & 16°F by Thursday. Much better than last night though, when I was out helping my son get the tractor back in the shed, it was 56 below with the wind howling.
