BRATTLEBORO—Sleigh rides at Fairwinds Farm on Upper Dummerston Road have long been a highlight of the Last Night Brattleboro events, but in recent years the weather has tended not to cooperate.
Monday afternoon, however, was a perfect day for a sleigh ride.
Buoyed by more than a foot of new snow, and with the air at a bracing 30 degrees Fahrenheit, Jay and Janet Bailey put two teams of draft horses to work handling demand from a line of visitors.
The visitors’ reward? A 20 minute sleigh ride through the 40 acres of pastures and woods of Fairwinds Farm. And that’s the way to start a new year.
