Today we took a little trip outside to enjoy the winter weather. Sundays in Norway are traditionally days for being outside. Skiing, walking or even riding a horse….we stopped along the way to visit some of the neighbourhood regulars. (All pictures taken with my SonyEricsson G502 telephone)
At a farm not far from where we live we could easily see that it wasn’t only the kids that thought the snow was fantastic. The snow can be a lot of fun for the horses too…especially if they have their winter jackets on. Here we know how to dress our children AND our animals.
Although I have never had a horse myself I have always loved them and thought they were beautiful animals. These were very used to passers by stopping to give them some attention and showed a great deal of trust and curiosity. Amazingly while I stood and patted the horse in the red jacket I turned to see another rolling in the snow.
It looked like this was just as fun and refreshing as can be!!! Renny tells me that it takes an enormous amount of trust for a horse to lie down on the ground in the presents of humans, so this fellow clearly thought that I was trustworthy.
Although the sun wasn’t shining it was still very nice out today. Not very cold with lots of snow to play in, or roll in – whether you happen to have four legs or two!
