One of the best things about winter is getting the chance to go play in the snow. There’s something magical and sweet about a freshly fallen coat of snow, that just begs for sleigh rides and snowball fights. But it’s not just humans that love a chance to mess around in the white fluffy stuff. Anyone who has an adventurous dog, or a wild kitty, knows that there are a lot of animals who anxiously await the turning of the seasons, as well. Even horses look forward to a chance to run around after a big storm!
These ten horses usually spend most of their time in a spacious pasture back at the ranch. But after a major snowfall, their owners decided it was time to let them run wild for a while, and experience the snow in its full glory. They set their ten horses free, then sat back to film the whole, joyous occasion. The snowfall was so deep that it easily came up to the horses bellies, but their strong legs had no problem moving them through the banks. They act like little kids, kicking up tufts of white and running all over the place, even diving straight into the snow!
As excited as all of them were to be horsing around in the snow, there was one who couldn’t contain her glee. If you keep your eye on the far right as you watch the video, you’ll see this beautiful mare sink deeply into the snow and start kicking her legs as she shouts out her excitement to all her friends. These horses are having so much fun, it makes me want to go spend a day in the mountains!
