Winter is Here!

Winter is here in Southern California! We had some rain; and high winds.

The Icelandic Horses were wet, but not uncomfortable. They chose not to take cover by standing under the shelter. Being short and stocky, with coats that are pretty weather proof, they don't mind getting wet. Heat and humidity bother them more than coolness.
