South West England seems to be the only area of Britain to escape the snow. We are very lucky but are still suffering temperatures down to minus five centigrade today. The last few days the moor has been shrouded in thick mist, contributing to today's amazing hoar frost. Nothing really on the ground; just attached to everything above ground and blown into directional banners by the freezing Easterly wind. Lots of frost flowers in lying twigs too. Yesterday I saw the first foal briefly in the fog, but it took fright when it saw me and scampered away before I could get my gloves off, let alone the camera out. It was chestnut, with a white blaze and I will be out searching for it tomorrow. Until then, the frost needs no words from me. It was magical.
It sounds like the freeze is set to last the week and, when it says a temperature on the forecast, we can usually subtract five degrees or so up here. I hope that foal is okay. Here's Snippet, busy in the fog yesterday. Until next time........keep safe in the freezing weather if you have it.
