The First Snowfall

This morning the snow finally started falling! I am not sure who was happier; the horses or the husband!!

The horses have been dying to get out for a good romp. They have been out here and there over the past 2 weeks, but not very long as the pastures have just been a complete swamp to the point where they were sinking as they stood!

Notice Apollo on the left, other side of the fence, in this photo. And you can barely see Gypsy's head on the right. She has no ambition to romp around like a nut with the rest of them :)

I love Romeo's mane in this picture!

Ahh, Peace & Snow!

We woke up to our first snow also! We have one more day off work and I ran into wake the husband up I was so excited!

I'm sure the pictures you posted just didn't do those moments justice but they sure gave us a glimpse of the joy of the moment.

Last year we had a (rare) snowfall and the dogs just went ballistic.

We've also had a terribly wet autumn and winter. On the few occasions that the ground has frozen, the goats go WILD! :)
