Chestnut horses and the unblemished snow - it's a pinto landscape!

You are so talented. The horses stand out so well against the snow. The picture reminds me so of my grandpa. In his later years, he loved for us to drive him around in the country to see the horses. Thanks for the memories today. Have a quiet, lovely evening.

What a fantastic photo and I bet they are happy to have that nice big round bale of green hay.

Oh, how we miss living on the horse farms. All my husband's working life he ran the broodmare or stallion divisions of horse farms. We miss the sights, the sounds, the smells and the closeness of this animal. We miss it much.
Thanks for the beauty.

I love horse though I've never ridden one. Great shot. It always amazes me that we have to get all bundled up to prevent hypothermia while the animals need to do nothing.

The contrast of the brown horses against the white background is gorgeous!
