When it’s freezing outside and the days are short, horse owners are usually longing for the warm days of the summer.
But as fields around Britain and overseas are carpeted in snow, we asked H&H readers to send in their pictures of horses making the most of the wintry weather and received a fantastic response.
From Scotland to Bavaria, enjoy these wonderful photographs of horses and ponies in the snow:
It looks like 18-year-old Welsh/hackney Purdy is making the most of the white stuff. Pictures by Kayleigh Spalding.
Frank is also enjoying the snow in his field in Bleary, Northern Ireland. Picture by Katie King.

Fione, 11, and Arabella, eight, from highland Perthshire, wanted to build snow ponies, but decided their sculptures ended up more like snow camels.
The sisters are members of the Pegasus Vaulting Group. Arabella with help from Fione decided to try a shoulder hang from her camel. Pictures by their mother, Sarah.
