Connemara Ponies in the Snow

Bridge Farm Connemara Ponies in the Snow

Again the early-morning sun was generous with its warmth. All the sounds dear to a horseman were around me – the snort of the horses as they cleared their throats, the gentle swish of their tails, the tinkle of irons as we flung the saddles over their backs – little sounds of no importance, but they stay in the unconscious library of memory … Wynford Vaughan-Thomas

The winter cold can make for a harsh wet cold miserable day

And when, seven days a week, you have no choice but to get out of bed and tend to the horse’s, it can seem as if winter is never ending.

But there are times, little moments, when those Connemara Ponies make you smile and you can’t help thinking it’s all worth it.

Here, for no special reason, are a few photos of our Connemara ponies in the snow.

Of course, you never have your camera handy when they’re frolicking around, but we found this small selection of photos quite sweet and we hope you do too.

The quotes? Well they’re quite sweet too, and just seem to fit the mood.

Have a wonderful winter day with your horse or pony…
Belinda & Richard

And indeed, a horse who bears himself proudly is a thing of such beauty and astonishment that he attracts the eyes of all beholders. No one will tire of looking at him as long as he will display himself in all his splendor … Xenophon
