Winter Hike



Our daily walks often take us into the fields.  We'll spend the first 30 minutes walking down our country road and then we'll turn into a forest trail which takes us into the fields and forest to give the dogs a good run.  In the winter it is much easier when the snowmobiles have beaten down the trails for me but the dogs don't care whether or not they are on the trails or running in the bush. 

There is always the chance of spotting deer, rabbits, wild turkeys or even a fox or two but the Pyr Sheps keep their eye on me and are continually checking back with me as we meander through the countryside.  When the hounds join us then it becomes a hunting party as they are all about the rabbits--which in what they are all about.  So the hounds only join us for the road exercise, or at specific times of year when hunting is allowed.
