Sleigh Me 

Lucky hackie got booked for a fare into the Eastern Townships of Quebec. My customers and I tooled around the border towns just north of the Richford crossing. At one point in the festivities, we visited a stable for a sleigh ride. 

The horses were magnificent! A white and a brindle Belgian, the size of medieval dragons, huffed and puffed and snorted as they dragged the Americans through the white countryside.

Our Vermont Justin Morgans are a gorgeous breed of equine, but - let's be honest - they're kind of shrimpy.

These Belgians, man oh man, them are horses!
