Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

As a lifelong Chicagoan and New Yorker, I know snow. I know winter—the cold, the damp, the nasty driving conditions, the salt that rots the bottom of your barn shoes and your aluminum horse trailer. Snow makes driving to lessons hazardous and affects my business in the wintertime. It makes turnout difficult, and it can make riding outside impossible.
 
And I love it!
 
I’ve always been a fan of snow. My brother and I would build these amazing forts at the end of our driveway when we were young, and though we only had one hill for miles around (and as Midwesterners, we use the term “hill” pretty loosely), we’d spend all day dragging our sleds up and coasting down.
 
Here in Virginia, snow is a rarer occasion, and thus is more worthy of celebration, so Douwe the Friesian and I hit the slopes for some playtime. Enjoy!

Let it snow! I love the snow!

Sorry, but even after shoveling 9 inches because my snowblower broke I still love the snow. Here is Green Bay we get a "bit" of it. If you aske me, nothing is prettier than watching my Gyspy Vanner Scout run through the snow like an excited puppy.
