Those are percheron (big breed of horse) hoof-prints, and the tracks of an authentic one-horse open sleigh, like the one invoked in “Jingle Bells!”
Our neighbor, Don Warlick of Secret Passage Ranch, brings the sleigh out for neighborhood fun when conditions are right…

We had a blast tootling around on it during our last big snowfall.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you, readers!
