Winter in PEI

We have so far enjoyed one of the easiest winters in a long time here is Prince Edward Island. We have had the perfect amouny of snow,just a light dusting to cover the ground, and the temperatures have been hovering just below freezing. Cold enough to keep the ground frozen and avoid the dreaded red mud we are known for and not cold enough to cause problems with frozen waterers. Our water bowls are all insulated or plug in buckets but when it is very cold , below -20C, we need to heat these bowls if there is only a small number of horses drinking from them.

These pictures were taken in last days of '09 and show how the horses enjoy the cold and snow!
