We had a glorious day, bright sunshine and temps around freezing but the first real sun in about a week so I put the herd out and they had a great day too. The "lake" at the bottom of the field has frozen and the ice is an inch or more thick. The horses did a bit of ice skating but I think generally enjoyed the fresh air and mud. The ground stayed pretty frozen so it wasnt too bad.
Cayenne trying her hand at ice skating. Ice was not quite thick enough and her hooves were breaking through LOL.
Dee decided that licking the ice and bit of snow on top of it was quite good, she pawed at it a bit to try to break it but it was shallow there so was solid.
Piglette, Daen and Dudette were hunting for tasty morsels.
Here are the 4 mares and Dosie doing a hunting exercise too and testing the ice. This is really the first time that Dosie has been out in this type of weather so it is a learning curve for him. I am really glad that I got Larry to have him gelded, he is such a happier horse now and gets on well with all the mares.
Just a quickie today. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day and enjoyed your meals and relaxed and had fun with family and friends.
