Mattie is part of the “Tombstone” litter which was a breeding between my 2015 Yukon Quest Golden Harness Winner, Sound, and a Jeff King dog named Kroner. This is a very exciting litter because it brings a whole new bloodline to the Kennel and all signs point towards these dogs being an amazing addition to our team. Born here at Wild and Free, the litter then spent the first six weeks of their life at Jeff’s Husky Homestead getting loved on by hundreds of guests everyday. They couldn’t have had a better upbringing and it showed as they grew up and into the harness. Like the “Orange is the New Black” litter and the current “Elements” litter, they excelled in their first season in harness and we look forward to them being a force in this year’s Main Race Team. Mattie, like here sister Louise, is very much like her mother Sound. Other than their difference in color, they share all the same qualities as a sled dog, which gives me high hopes for her future. A strong puller with a natural ability to lead and a calm, laid-back demeanor, Mattie is a pleasure to train and an even better at snuggling. In 2016, she ran the Two Rivers 200 and the Quest 300 and had strong performances in both races. I look forward to seeing Mattie live up to her full potential this training and race season.
