Thanks, all. :)

Northenstar, yeah, he's very confident of himself and clearly feels totally safe among his herd to sleep like that. He also lets any person he likes to approach him when he's sleeping and doesn't even bother to raise his head - just gives a quick look and snores away.

Got a new camera (I have a camera, at last!), so here's a couple of my first pictures with it:





And we left some vegetables on a haybed in the forest for the wild animals as a present in winter Solstice.

We use this blanket only to cool off after rides, but boy it looks fine on him!



Now just for some winter fun at liberty. His rears are getting better, as he's started engaging his hind legs more. Of course, rearing can be dangerous and you shouldn't try it out unless you really know what you're doing. :)








And something I'm quite proud of - I taught him this stretch from a scratch and mostly at liberty - he enjoys it very much and we'll be proceeding to learn bowing from this point:

Lovely! Snickers looks like he's having so much fun in the snow! What a happy boy he is!

Yay for the new camera and Snickers pics! He looks great!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks, guys! Snickers is indeed a happy horse - he loves nothing more than fun and games, and I try to let him feel like that about everything we do. :)

Beautiful photographs!!
I say it all the time, but I just cannot even fathom that sort of cold. Here in South Australia, we think we're all going to freeze to death if it hits 0*C at night, in the middle of winter!!!! - Which is rare, usually about 6* is the coldest it gets!

At the moment of taking these pictures, it was rather warm - well, for our winters, at least. It was about -10 by Celsius during daytime, and about -15 by night. This was after a couple of colder days with -15 by daytime and -20 by night. -35 is about the coldest it can get here during daytime (not speaking about windchill, though). Currently we have an unnaturally warm period with 0 - +3 - even +6 during daytime and all the beautiful snow is melting away. :( That being said, I can imagine living in a warmer climate with mild winters, but I guess I wouldn't enjoy them as much. I have grown into liking freezing temperatures and our horses adapt to them well, too.
