Standing in the Sunshine

These photos were taken last weekend, but I never got around to posting them.
Here's little Sophie.
She eats hay now 

but she still prefers her mother's milk.
Here's butterball Scout.

 Horses love to roll, don't they? I like the way Annie's feet are all in the air.

Check out the new snowy whorl Annie has in the middle of her forehead.

Everybody took turns having a good roll in the deep, white stuff.

After rolling, they didn't know what to do with all that deep snow. The sunshine was very warming, however, so just standing and soaking up the sun rays seemed a good choice.

I guess this is what Yalla! would look like if she turned gray, huh?

She decided to come over and join me. We watched the other horses stand around.

And she chewed on my boot.

Why does Yalla! always look like a cute little pony??

What a cute, happy bunch of critters! We had lots of snow already this time last year...

I am happy with the mild winter we are having so far. :)

They all look so cute and adorable. Love little Sophie what a cutie. Hope it melts soon and you get some warm temps. The horses seem to like it though.

Wow in that 1st pic of Yalla you can certainly see how much she's grown :)

Snow! Enjoy some for me. It looks like we won't be having any this year here in GA.

I think it's the thick, thick fur that makes her look like a pony. I bet when she sheds out this spring she'll look all grown up. :) Regardless she's absolutely adorable. I love how much personality she has. I like how she's trying out being gray for a day lol. Love that picture.

Also, Scout is so gorgeous! I love his color (Appaloosas were my first favorite breed before I learned about Friesians lol). The paint spots make his appy spots so unique lol.

And not to leave miss Annie out, her snow whorl is cute. Her flea-bitten spots sure do show up in the winter don't they? She's so pretty. I hope if Chrome turns flea-bitten that he's a pretty one too.

It's funny. My kids always say how big Yalla! looks when they see her running around in your arena, but I always see her as being small. Maybe it's because I still see her as that tiny foal just born and then racing around like a little kid so excited. She doesn't seem as big as her Mother yet, but she still may grow more, right?

Sophie Rose sure has grown. Wow! I've not seen her since she was about 2 weeks old because I've not walked down to your barn once all our snow was dumped on us. She is such a beautiful little alpaca.


ps BTW, did you see that you won Mange in that contest you entered on the Vet student's blog(I can't remember the name of the blog)?
Congrats on your Mange! :D

Nice pictures. Horses do love to roll in the snow. Ours are enjoying rolling in the warm sand since we don't have any snow on our side of the mountain.

I love watching horses roll. I can watch it over and over again - they just seem so ungainly and they look like they are enjoying it oh, so much! Love your pictures!

We haven't had any snow to speak of this year. i know people are getting worried about the lack of moisture...looks like you guys got it all. ;-) Do you mind keeping it?
