The endless mud has all frozen & liable to cause broken legs. Currently mucking out5 a day now as owners can't get here, and our horses are a load of pansies. Turn them out, they roll then want to come in again x
Mine's loving the snow, he hated all that mud, though I'm dreading the thaw! He's been very sedate over the rutted bits, I think they are ok when they are out all the time anyway. It's the ones who are stabled who tend to go a bit bonkers when they are turned out in the snow.
We turn out in the sand school for half an hour or so, whilst mucking out, but our field is deathly near the gates and the snow is so thick, they can't graze properly and stand there looking miserable.
Horrified at the broken legs, glad I haven't turned out too.
