Prairie Winds Racing

Mid-Distance Racing Sled Dogs

Bear

Born: Dec 2015

Position: Team

 

Bear LOVES being a sled dog. He's a big old puppy and is still very puppy-ish in everything he does. This will be Bear's first racing season and will be on Julia's team for the most part.

 

 

Boo Boo

Born: September 2013

Position: Leader/Team

 

Boo is a stellar little dog who is everything you could ask for in a sled dog and now a mom. Tireless and always ready to go, she's a shoe in for the A team but might float between both as a lead dog backup.

 

 

Brandi

Born: 2013

Position: Point/Lead

 

Brandi is all spunk and sass and MOUTH! I call her the kennel tattle-tail most of the time as she's always talking back to whoever's doing something in the yard. very smart little girl who will work into lead some this season.

 

Closer

Born: 2014

Position: Team/wheel

 

Closer is an extremely gifted athlete. Always gives 110% on the line at all times and is a loping machine. He's the daddy to this year's puppies and they're all adapting his sweet personality.

Cora

Born: 2010

Position: Leader/puppy trainer

 

Cora is a very sweet, mellow mannered lady. Due to an auto immune disease she is semi-retired but will still be helping train the next generation of lead dogs for us.

 

 

Fraser

Born: May 2017

Position: Puppy Team

 

Fraser is a very sweet mellow mannered puppy. A lot of his mannerisms remind me of Uncle Rocky.

Hatchet

Born: May 2017

Position: Puppy Team

 

Hatchet is the biggest of his litter, surprise he came out the smallest! He's an adventurous puppy who gets his nose into anything and everything. Looks like his dad but acts like momma Boo!

Kaltag

Born: April 2014

Position: Lead

 

Kaltag is a wise old soul with the sweetest personality you've ever seen. I'm very excited to grow my bond with him over the seasons as we head down the trail together.

Kenai

Born: April 2014

Position: Team/wheel

 

Kenai is a very shy, sensitive lady. We're working on some trust issues and socialization but running isn't one of her flaws. She loves being a sled dog and will be paired up with her son Bear for most of the season!

 

Oopsie

Born: March 2014

Position: Lead/Point

 

Oopsie is Cora's mini-me! All 30 lbs of her. She's my polly pocket sled dog who has taken to leading like a little pro.

 

 

 

Penny

Born: December 2014

Position: Lead/Swing

 

Penny is a character. With her crazy ears and loud personality you can usually find her sucking up to all the spectators around the truck. She ran main lead for me last season and will lead again this year.

Popple

Born: 2014

Position: Team

 

Popple is another little lady who proves the dynamite theory, "big things come in small packages."

She is hard driving and a hard worker.

 

Puff

Born: 2008

Position: Team/Wheel

 

Puff is my old man clown. He's the comic relief in the dog yard and the brute strength in team. He'll be lending his power to Julia's team this year.

Rocky

Born: 2015

Position: Team/started lead

 

Rocky was an outstanding yearling last year and I can't wait to see him mature this year. He's a super star in team but has shown a lot of promise in lead. We'll work on those skills this fall.

Rue

Born: 2013

Position: Team/Lead

 

Rue has blossomed into a rockstar point dog and pace setter and a very reliable backup leader.

Snowbank is a diva with a capital D. The most like her momma Boo she does what she wants when she wants.

Soul

Born: June 2016

Position: Swing/Team

 

Soul is a very quiet happy boy who is new to us this year.

Spirit

Born: June 2016

Position: Team

 

My little psycho princess. She is such a ball of energy and going to be a blast to work into the team.

Storm:

Born: July 2014

Position: Team/started lead

 

Storm is a giant lover of a dog. He's very reserved unless he feels like he's being ignored and then he's got a voice you can't ignore. Great started leader who should make the main team this year.

Thomas

Position: Puppy Team

 

Thomas is the most like his daddy Closer. He's a people puppy all the way and hardly ever leaves my side on our walks.

Thunder

Thunder (ThunderPaws) is an energetic, outgoing and just plain happy dog. Always the first to great visitors to the yard or truck his enthusiasm is contagious on and off the line.

Zephyr

Born: 2010

Position: Leader

 

Zephyr is an incredibly driven lead dog. He's the team gas pedal and he's happiest when he's loping. Surprised me last season and single lead for 15 miles at the end of a 3 day race and upped our speed instead of slowing down. Love this monster.
