Snigging? That's a new one on me.
From Merriam Webster American dictionary...Definition of SNIG1chiefly dialectal : to chop off : lop2a chiefly dialectal : to drag jerkilyb : to snake or drag (a log) with a rope or chainOrigin of SNIGorigin unknownThis word doesn't usually appear in AMERICAN dictionary, but the definition from our premium Unabridged Dictionary is offered here on a limited basis. Note that some information is displayed differently in the Unabridged.Tara--obviously an English reference!
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.
I love always tuning in here and learning new things!Tara
