Our second short & easy training run with young Rudy.
He's definitely "getting it"!!!
|Beautiful shot of the skijoring trio as they run in set tracks while I glide safely in the side powder!|
This morning's run was PERFECT! Rudy has really picked this up (not that we expected any different). What is most fun to notice about the prior photo is how Zorro, Jack and Rudy auto-aligned for a perfect training setup. Note that I am skiing the shoulder snow to the left and Zorro is also to the left of the 3 pack. Zorro is "setting the pace" in this position and the one I will primarily talk to if any commands are needed. Jack is in second slot - following Zorro's lead but also towing the human. Finally, young Rudy is out in the third slot. He is so far away from me that he is not pulling, his only job is to run & jog at the pace set by his brothers. PERFECT! I planned to try and enforce this configuration; but I said nothing - Zorro & Jack took the 1st & 2nd slots on their own.
Come along for our first "3 pack" skijoring video - WHEEEE!

Time for a quick break for young Rudy and I directed us to some fun "side powder":
|Rudy's first "fresh tracks" (for about 10 yards :)|
|"Break time - serve them up!" declares smart Zorro.|
"Rub a dub dub!" demonstrates silly Jack.
"I'm having a blast!" says happy Rudy.
|As was the case all day: in perfect form and perfect configuration!|
