Snow Day Shenanigans!
By: Brittany Bevis
When you were a kid, there was nothing better than a snow day. Remember back to your childhood. You’d wake up early in the morning, prepared to get ready for school, only to look out your bedroom window and discover that the world had turned into a winter wonderland over night!
Well, if you’re a horse, the exuberance is similar. Horses love running in, rolling around, and even eating snow. Granted, this week’s conditions have been particularly intense in the Central U.S., and we wish all of our horse-loving friends in Texas and Oklahoma safer weather and a resolution to the energy crisis in the area.
But, sometimes snow means fun! Several of our The Equine Chronicle readers answered the call when we asked them to share their horses enjoying the recent winter weather.
Scroll below and enjoy! Stay safe and warm out there.
Snow kisses! Kirstie Marie Photography.
