AliciaMae of Crafts and Cooking chose snowflakes as a topic for the EtsyBloggers Street Team January carnival.
No snow here, just rain... but recently I was talking to one of my friends about horses and the snow, something my horses will likely never see. Good thing because Kylie shivers in the mornings if I take her blanket off to get her ready to ride and it is below 65. Since I grew up on the east coast, I had my fair share of dealing with the slippery ice, frigid temperatures, frozen water buckets, and deep snow. I worked at a barn during college and all the horses were turned out each morning all winter long in the snow. They seemed perfectly happy. I can't remember too many days that the weather stopped us from riding. When I was a kid I had "rain gear" for riding in the rain. A plastic hat cover, saddle cover, and poncho. Not here! People do not even like to ride when the ground is damp...may be slippery!
These are my dad's horses. They live in Vermont and they survive in quite a bit of snow.
Here are some horses in winter I found on Etsy.
