This is a Rocky Mountain horse running in snow who was pretty excited to be out for a run in the morning sunshine. Naturally so, he’d been kept inside the barn all day yesterday as the snowstorm came and went. There was a lot of pent up energy to let fly!
Just like a third-grader off from school on a snow day, here’s a horse who knows how to have fun! Mainly, get out and go…make that powder snow fly! Get some wind under that black mane!
As you can see by all the tracks in the new snow, he made plenty of passes around the paddock before coming to a stop. He finally had to catch his breath after running at speed for so long. Big steam clouds of breath surrounded him as he stood, breathing heavily. Then it was off to go around some more. Obviously, he was working a very deep well of horsey joy and enthusiasm.
Of course, we had to get all the other horses out for some running in the snow. Here’s the Rocky Mountain horse’s barn mate, Skippy, on the same day. It’s called Quarterhorse In Snow #12372.
