Exciting tour with children mushers
Four children, between 10 and 14 years old, and five adults started, highly motivated, to a five day wilderness trip around lake Altevatn. Nine dog teams, 48 huskies in total, were all excited during the start. The children rode smaller sledges than the adults and had 3 – 4 huskies in a team. Each one of the participants had been on a huskyfarm holiday before and knew how to dog sled, but a real, several days lasting wilderness trip was new to everybody. The excitment was huge!
The nature did not appear in the best light: warm temperatures and wet snow, difficult snow conditions, a lot of wind and bad sight made wilderness wilder than we had thought.
It was outstanding how the difficulties of the tour were handled with a lot of laughter and always keeping a good mood. Everybody enjoyed the daily work with the dogs and agreed: we were on tour with the best huskies in the world.
Thanks to a wonderful crowd of people and thanks to each and every member of the group for a
The sun is bak!
Adopted puppies ...
… came to the Huskyfarm 10 days ago. As we only got one puppy (Stine) from our own breed this summer, we didn`t think twice when Mario Juric from Skottevik in South Norway offered us seven litte Greenlandhusky puppies. We were happy that our little Stine got friends to play around with.
Mario and his sons travelled 2000 km to take the little puppies all the way to the Huskyfarm and everybody, people and dogs, were quite tired when they arrived. After only two days the adopted
puppies seemed to be fully accepted by the stepmother and stepsister. They are playing around together and when they are tired they are sleeping closely side by side.
