Welcome tot he forum!
As far as snow is concerned, if your mare needs shoes, then ask your farrier about borium. It is welded in spots on the shoe to help prevent slipping on ice and on pavement.
One thing I noticed in the third picture that concerned me was the fact that you have the saddle sitting loosely on her back without the cinch tightened but the breast collar is. That can be a recipe for a wreck. If your horse shakes or moves quickly and the saddle slips, the breast collar could cause the saddle to spook your horse since the saddle can't fall off but can get tangled around the mare.
Rule of thumb is to undo the hobble strap, then the tugs on the breast collar before undoing the cinch.
Other then that, I hope you really get to enjoy her! (love the Penn State sweatshirt)
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
