Information in swedish about the origin of my kennelname...

Om namnet...
"ylä" betyder övre på finska och "järvi" betyder sjö så med lite kreativt språkmixande så blir det Ylande sjöns kennel vilket passar bra eftersom det är polarhundar jag har & jag bor precis vid Orsasjöns strand.

Kenneln har ett 20tal Siberian Huskys och både tävlar i drag och ställer ut. Kör främst medeldistans men även sprint och medeldistans

 No competitions due to Covid restrictions.

Jag har under säsongen fått testa MILA:s pannlampa VEGA som är "värstingen" på marknaden när det kommer till ljusstyrka... Den lyser betydligt starkare än både skoter och UTW:n !!
Under VM:s första heat som avgjordes i mörker hade jag Vega på mig och det var inte ett enda av de spann jag körde om som inte reagerade på "strålkastaren" som kom farandes i full fart... Det blir ljust som på dagen och en trygg och säker färd för spannet även i hög fart.
Att teamet även fick snabbaste heattid grundade för det VM-GULD som vi efter tre dagars tävlande kunde kröna vinterns succé med!

Tiger and Grynet in lead
