Early winter came this year in mid-May. Snow fell here at Spring Spur Homestead and blanketed the paddocks much to Lin and Clay’s delight who both took advantage of the back hill with their snowboards.
The horses were a bit put out though and wondered what had happened to their pasture. Spring is arriving slowly and the “daffs” are blooming and buds are already on the fruit trees. The shaggy coats of the herd are being left in big patches in the paddocks and we are looking forward to riding amongst lots of summer snow drifts this year as it has been an exceptional year for the winter ski season.
