We’re not sure what’s better: the clear, crisp jingling of sleigh bells or the maniacal, joyous laughter of the driver.
When I have bells on my draft horse team, I’m used to the steady rhythm of their big-footed trot. While my team isn’t the best matched in the world, meaning that over the course of a few moments the rhythm changes from a nice, cadenced “ring, a ling, a ling, a ring, a ling” to a sort of percussion-section-falling-down-the-stairs effect, I’m used to the distinctive sound of big horses moving at a trot.
This video, starring a pony named Radar, cracks me up — for one, because the rhythm of the bells on this little guy is “RINGALINGALINGALINGALINGALING” thanks to his little stride and rapidly-trotting little hooves.
For another, the wild, joyous laughter of the driver. If that doesn’t make you laugh along with, you must be having a really bad day.
So the weather has broke enough for us to venture out for a drive. We received around 10" of snow, so I could not go where I wanted to. Have to get the neighbor with his skiidoo to make me trails. Still had fun though. Radar Was so full of it today.
