Frosty muzzle

Is it ok for a horse to have a frosty muzzle?

I would imagine so. Ours are pasture kept with not much cover, and frequently run around with icicle beards and snow on their backs when it is snowing. They lay down in it happily to sleep, so I am sure they are comfy. As long as there is plenty of hay to keep warm, bring on the icicle beards! :P

lol. My horse has little icicles hanging from his whiskers and his eye lashes are a frosty white in the evening. So he looks really funny and kind of cute.
I can remember a while back when I was eight, I saw a team of draft horses that had long icicles hanging from their nostrils. They were pulling a sleigh for kids. I couldnt help wondering if that was uncomfortable for the horses.

On the one or two times each winter when we have snow/sleet here in NC, all our mares have icicles on their muzzles, forelocks, manes, tails...everywhere and it doesn't seem to bother them at all.
