Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Look what we woke up to this morning! Obviously we had very high humidity last night, coming from the south, which is rare, but that always brings the monsoonal moisture from the Gulf Coast. The trees, and everything else, are heavily coated with white frost. Above is the tree growing out of the split rock.



And here's Baby Dee (above) sporting some outrageous frosty fringe on those beautiful ears. And then we have Dazzle (below, left) and her momma Winona (below, right) also modeling some frosty fringe, too.



And below we have Jazz (left) and Maggie (right) with a bit of frosty on their manes and tails.



And Handel, ever the smart boy, has the perfect solution to a cold day - lay down and eat your hay! Ah, wisdom does come with age.



Click on any of the photos to enlarge them - the frost is amazing!!

It is gorgeous. We actually had snow! *sigh*

The goats will frost like that too...

Oh my gosh, the frost on the coats looks magical! We are, sadly, still in the 90s here.

All the pics are breathtaking. Such beauty in something as simple as frost. Wishing we just had cooler weather here. Hugs!!

It's just beautiful! Although I didn't realize frost settled on the warm bodies of your critters. I snapped a few shots of frost on the grass and ground early morning...and accidently left house plants on the deck which are now frozen dead, oops.

Ann said...

Wow, glad it's your frost and not mine....lol It does look pretty though.

Ugh! I'm not ready for frost and snow--I think last winter's snow just melted last week. The animals look lovely with frosted ears--I didn't know that happened!!

Wow, that really is amazing. And beautiful on that tree (not bad looking on the animals either, I just wonder if they are cold, ha ha)

Theresa said...

Lovely photos, especially the tree with the frost all over it. Hope all that thick hair keeps the llamas nice and warm.

Split Rock Ranch said...

The thick wool on the llamas does keep them nice and toasty warm, but can you see why we don't shear past the first of July?!

I love the pictures. They are just beautiful :) Thanks for sharing.

Interesting that the frost goes on the animals too! I never knew that--would think that would make their ears very cold but it didn't look like they cared in the pictures.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
