We're in Manitoba. Our winter has been fairly mild, but when we DO get snow, it's been some pretty big wallops. It hasn't snowed in awhile, but was warm enough today to comfortably ride in the deep snow without the horses crashing through an ice barrier.

My horse is currently in France and will be shipped out in about 3 weeks time to me (in Quebec, Canada) and I kind of hope that there will still be snow on the ground as I'm keen to see what he makes of it!

Nice pictures. But that snow's not real deep. We have a horse that loves deep snow. The deeper the better. He loves plowing thru snow up to his chest! I think he might have some deer in him because he likes to leap thru it.

I was riding one of our other ones and he decided to go along the trees. He sunk in so far that when I got off, the snow was up to the saddle, and he's 16hh! I wasn't sure if we were going to get him out. Maybe he'll listen next time when I tell him it's too deep!

Lol, Gizmo is 16 hands and the snow was up to his chest at one point. It was back down to his knees, but we got a foot and a half so now its probably back up to his chest, but boy does he hate it. We will go so far and he will just stop and be like, "Mom you turn me around because I am NOT walking through this crap anymore" Sorry for the language but that is what he looks like when he stops, lol. He is like me, he loves the sun. When its out he knows all the spots where the sun hits his pen just right and he will stand there and soak up the sun, and he has a full winter coat, with a blanket on! He loves being warm. And I do too. I am so sick of snow right now. I could live in 80 degree weather all the time. Why I want to move to Texas :). But I am glad to see someone having fun with the snow.

Refer to the pics of the gate. We have tons of places where we would lose our horse in the snow. Hence why we avoid those spots because I really have no desire to try and dig my horse out of a 4 foot bank of snow. I've had to deal with stuck horses before and it puts a real damper on an otherwise fun day.

Definitely not the deepest part of that field, we stuck to the middle to miss the drifts! Over by the treeline they would've sunk to their chest! I rode Eve last week just in the yard and there were a couple spots where as she bunny hopped through the drifts, my feet touched the snow! Haha, it was awesome but she was less than impressed!

LOL, I checked and we've had about 4 feet of snow fall from November 1, 2010 to January 28, 2011. That's not including the snow we've had in the last month. We've already passed our average for the year and have a good month left to go!

Combined with winds, that makes our drifts well over 5-6' in places!

Wow that is a lot. The drifts have been HORRIBLE this year. My problem now is ice. The snow I don't mind so much that is easy to ride in. But ice yuck! I like Gizmo going bare foot so I didn't want to put studded shoes on him, so I was told to get easy boots with ice studs. But I might have to wait it out. We have probably three weeks left before spring really starts to come, so its not too bad, but not riding has been driving both of us nuts. And of course right now its raining/sleeting/snowing. Yay!....not. Lol
