Snow Around New Mill

Here are the rest of the photos from the snowy day as in my post about the mill pond.  This is the gate I mentioned which is at the start of the path down to the mill pond and really should have been in that collection.  The problem was that I'd taken it earlier in the day before I went down to the mill pond so it got missed.

A little way up the road from the gate is a field where there are a couple of horses and a sheep.  This photo is a little hut and a water container in the field which give an idea of how much snow has fallen.

Lynne had brought some old carrots for the horses and this white one was trying to get some food.  The other horse is a very small brown one which is actually behind this one but it's almost completely out of sight.  It's maroon coat is just visible below the white horse's neck.  Lynne was trying to get some food to the smaller horse but the big one was keeping it out of the way.

We passed a few horse's fields on our walk and the next one had this other light coloured horse in it.  When it saw us it came to the fence to see if we had anything to eat but Lynne had given all of the carrot to the first horses.  Anyway we didn't like the look of this horse much because it scary looking eyes.  On it's coat you can see the little white streaks where the snow was still coming down a little.

This next horse was also looking for food and it looked a bit sad that we didn't have anything for it.

The next photo is the stables where I believe the horses from the previous photos belong.  When my youngest daughter was quite young, this is where she came for her riding lessons.  The lady that ran the stables is semi-retired so I don't think she does lessons any more although there is still a little arena behind the stables.


We walked past some gardens on the way back from the walk and this is a photos of some very bright looking berries covered with snow.

This is part of the path that goes around the football and rugby pitches next to the horses field.  I think the pitches belong to the secondary school and the kids that go to the school call the field Wembley.

Here are some more trees at "Wembley" and this photo shows how the wind has made the snow stick to the tree trunks .

This is a tree that I have photographed many times because I just love the shape of it.  It looks quite different with no leaves and covered in snow but still looks good.

 This is the same tree but now looking from next to the wall and across to the other side of the valley.

 On the way back home we went past the horse's fields again and I took this photo of the blue bath which they use for their drinking water.

This is one of the old roads which is just used as a bridle path now.

Snowy Bridle Path
The last photo is from the bridle path, across a horse's field and over to the trees and fields at the other side of the valley.  It was still snowing a bit which makes it looks a bit misty in  the distance.

I think that's all of my snowy photos for the moment.  I have a few more taken of the garden but I'm not sure they are worth posting. I don't know whether we'll get any more snow soon or if that's it until next winter.  We have had snow in June before now but that's very rare but there's still February and March where we  could see more.
