    I agree Sailor, that the hard packed snow is not such an issue, especially if its not deep. Here in Maine we do get deep snow, and it often is soft enough that you may sink a foot or two down. I think that may be because our weather varies so much. Earlier this week it was -2 and we had tons of snow, today it was 55 and we got enough rain to wash the snow away...so maybe I only think of it because of where I live?

    Actually, it sounds like your weather is similar to ours! Since there isn't any suction to speak of from snow, I'm not sure how it'd cause a problem--but I'll take your word for it 'cause I'm certainly no expert!

    If the snow is more than a foot deep I won't trot Shandy, let alone canter. I just don't trust the stuff! But he sure seems to enjoy going out in it and wandering around with me more or less directing him where to go!

    Especially if I happen to be directing him toward home and herd. Sigh. We're working on it!
