Blizzard of 2010

The first major snow storm of the season is none other than a blizzard. Beginning early this afternoon here at the farm, the wind is now howling and the snow is flying sideways. Although the horses were all out earlier today, by late afternoon it became apparent that they needed to be put in the barn early for the night, where they will be safe from the wind, the cold, and the snow. Our carriage rides logically cancelled for this evening. Sleigh rides are being booked for Tuesday, as the snow is predicted to continue well into tomorrow afternoon, with a total of 18 inches possible here in New London County. Days like to day, I have no doubt that our horses are grateful for a cozy barn to stay warm, safe and dry in!

  1. Your horses are beautiful! Don't they grow heavy coats in the winter? My Gypsies are pretty shaggy, and we're in AZ. I can't imagine them needing blankets, but then again, it's been awhile since I've been in 3 degree weather! But I'd love to see my horses playing in the snow...
    Stay warm!!
