A pretty smattering

I was very surprised yesterday while at the stable....it was raining , very hard and grey. The mare was on stall rest  still. I was flitting about and realized...I do NOT hear the rain on the roof anymore.
I came out to see.....the horses looking on big ol' FLUFFY FLAKES OF SNOW!
I loved how they were captivated by it's silent- stilling- effect on the world they live in.

They pondered it some...then decided to meet over the gate between their paddocks~

Hiya my Romes...how about a bit of a taste now....

After a bit..they returned to the stall for another bite of hay or two...I also went back in to do some chores...but had to catch them one more time...looking on~

The mare was wondering WHAT?!!

I simply agreed to leave them in the peace of the Silent stillness of snow~

With a touch of His hand, God took a gloomy day of wet...and made it glorious and new; refreshed in a white robe!


  1. Merry Christmas!! May all your dreams come true...big kiss for the beautiful mare for me?

  2. LORI!! H8i there sweet girlfriend!
    Kissing her already!

  3. Loved these close ups! You can see the eyelashes and the sky reflected in the eye. Wow! What a God moment indeed! Like the gift of Christmas visited you in that awesome soiltary moment - just as God revealed His Son on that Silent Holy night in Bethlehem. Glad you captured the moment on film. :)

  4. Beautiful photos, Kacy! Merry Christmas to you and your herd, both human and furry. And Miss Echo sends lots of healing jingles to Miss Wa.

  5. Kacy...that second shot of the chestnut is quite spectacular! Is it still snowing?

    Merry Christmas!

  6. Oh. Wow.

    Those are some really lovely shots KK. You have quite a talent!

    Those pine trees? You made me miss the supreme silence of a new snowfall.....Nothing quite like it on Earth.

    To answer your question: yes, a bruise from stepping not quite right can happen on frozen ground. If it's been wet, and the hoof was soft, it's more likely. Keep feeling her feet. If you find a warmer spot, pack her with Ichthamol, and let her decide how much to move or be still.

    Stay warm! Merry Christmas!!

    And thank you for those wonderful shots!

  7. Snow makes everything look beautiful. And even makes horse more beautiful.

    Your photos blew me away, Kacy.

    Merry Christmas, my friend.
