The coldest season of the year.
Characterized by freezing temperatures, bitter cold wind, and sometimes icy snow.
Here in central North Carolina we rarely get the opportunity to experience snow fall, especially in large quantities.
So even though the snow makes outside chores less enjoyable, we tend to make the most of it.
Because once you get past the endless driveway shoveling, dangerous icicles, and treacherous footing for livestock, snow can be quite fun! Snowball fights, building snowmen, making snow angels, and of course sledding!
Sledding is a popular winter activity. Particularly for kids.
I haven’t been a kid for quite some time now, but when it snows in North Carolina a little bit of kid comes out in all of us!
We were blessed with a wonderful snow storm in early January that nearly shut the state down. So what better to do when you’re stuck at home than to go sledding!
My husband and I took the opportunity to act like big kids and test out our rusty sledging skills.
Our yard was perfect for the task!
And we had so much fun that I thought the ducks might enjoy it too!
Do ducks like to sled?
I was hesitant to put a duck on the sled at first because I was unsure about how they would react to such as crazy activity.
Would they sit still in my lap? Might they go flying off the sled? Would they hate me the rest of their lives? These were questions I had to ask myself.
But it sounded like too much fun to pass up!
I think, YES!
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the ducks sat perfectly still for the entire trip down the hill.
Are my ducks daredevils?
Most likely not, because a new food bowl can send them into a complete panic as if the sky is falling…
However, I have a theory for why this went so well!
I believe the action of sledding down the hill may have given my ducks the simulated feeling of flying!
Which must have been a great treat for my land bound domestic ducks.
So even though they won’t admit it, I think they secretly liked it!
