Snowy horse photos

We got tons of snow on Saturday, but it was so beautiful Sunday morning that we just had to put the horses outside. It was a little deep but they didn't seem to mind.

Here is Albert, Susan's arabian gelding, in the deepest snow.



This is Marge's arabian stallion, Delane. The snow is almost up to his you-know-what's.



Lastly, here is Kaswyn. He's the only princess in the barn with a blanket on.



Kaswyn had no hives yesterday and the more I can get him outside the better off he's going to be.

The snow is pretty, even though I really hate winter. However, the good news is that it's supposed to get up to 48 degrees by Thursday. The bad news is that all the snow will melt and turn the pastures into a soupy, muddy mess. Blah!

That's a lot of snow for March. It does look very pretty, though. As much as I am hoping Spring will start tomorrow up here in Minnesota I have to remember that Spring in Minnesota means mud, mud, mud.

lol... and people say horses don't like snow...
can you give me a phonetic spelling of Kaswyn?

Wow! I heard that you guys got a lot more snow than us, but I didn't actually picture it in my head. Photos of horses really let you know how deep the snow is. And Kaswyn is super cute!

Katee,

Yeah, we get tons of mud here too. Not a whole lot you can do about it except invest in all weather paddocks or spend lots of cash on drainage.

Lovelee,

It's pronounced kass-win, with the emphasis on the kass. A lot of people say kazz-win, and at shows sometimes they announce his name as kass-whan. Which I think is pretty funny.

Julia,

Thanks, I think he's cute too. :)

It looks to me like Kaswyn is in the least depth of snow. Is that because he is smarter and found a less deep spot to stand. lol

That is so cool. I have never seen that much snow

Aww, I miss snow like that, living in London means even one inch of snow causes havoc ;))
In Poland, my anglo-arab used to love playing in the snow and it was even deeper than on your pictures. He would spent ages on rolling about, sniffing and generally behaving as if the snow was the best thing in the world :)
I agree about the after-mud though!!
