It runs in the family

Out snigging today, and, below, the view of the Tamar valley from Greenscombe, with a snowy Dartmoor in the distance

I use the term half jokingly to refer to the dogs' habit of dragging large logs out of the wood, often with a great deal of effort. Locally it is used to refer to horses pulling tree trunks etc out with the aid of chains in places where tractors would do too much damage to the ground.
