This is the first time in a week the sun has shone…so Sluggy and I went for a photographic walk in the nearby woods. Pru & Jazzy had to stay home because they are not meant to be bouncing around.
Took lots of pics, as you will see, so easier to put them all in a blog!

Just leaving the garden…snow on the viburnam..

Snow everywhere!

This part of the walk was particulary pretty in the sunshine…

Fed up with monochrome? Daffodils!! And they smell wonderful.

Well that’s it for the snow pics! Hope that soon I can get some foal pics, all bouncing around in green paddocks! We had one foal yesterday and two are due any day now.

I can't even pick one picture to say it would be my favorite as they're all so beautiful! Each one seems magical to me, the lighting, the snow covered branches, the colors, your dog looking happy as can be :)

It looks so pretty, what a difference the sun makes on the scene.
Are you sure Sluggy isnt a black dog but speckled with white snow like everything else?

Lovely pics - what a difference a spot of sunshine makes!

magic !

Lovely photos! Do you have to keep stopping to get the snow out of Sluggypup's paws? I remember taking my lab retriever out for snowy walks and it was a constant battle to get packed snow out of her feet! Maybe because her feet were hairy?

25 Jan, 2013

 

Sluggy doesn't get packed paws, maybe because they aren't hairy paws! Just need to stay walking straight ahead if she's galloping past!
Glad you all liked the walk as much as I did, thank you for your comments.
Lovely sunrise, all pink this morning, along with the threat of more snow then rain from tomorrow.
We've got two mares about to foal then 6 more after, right up till May!

i love the way the colour of the snow changes with the light...

I think snow in woods is even more exciting than autumn!

ooooh missed your walk Lou, been busy, great photos and so clear. How lovely to have this on your doorstep!

It's wonderful. Just open the back door straight onto paddocks and a short walk to the two woods. It's a lovely sunny day today and no snow!! Yay. The stud drive had two inches of solid ice...tested my driving skills!

27 Jan, 2013

 

no snow here either ~ 6 inches gone overnight!!

and its green outside my window!

27 Jan, 2013

 

Isn't it lovely and all the ice gone on the drive thank goodness!

27 Jan, 2013

 

incredible!

glad you can get out safely now though

Oh no more expansion!! Pru and Jazz have had big time limps, so they been resting. No bounding across the countryside just yet. And it feels very strange to be walking only one dog!

looks like a lovely walk. We have so many hills, it's a fell run, before you get to go on your walk. Mind you, the sledging is ace...!

31 Jan, 2013

 

Actually wish we had more hills, better exercise! My other half does a bit of fell running, I just stand and watch!
