Oh Snow!

So, as many of you are aware the UK is pretty snowbound...even down here in Cornwall, which is rare indeed.

When it's like this we can't put the horses out in the fields as the snow balls up in their shoes and creates mini icy stilts which isn't good for them at all. Because of this the last couple of days has seen us juggling stables so they all get a change of scenery during the day...bless them!

While we haven't been suffering with the worst of the snow down here on our little peninsula, we have been stricken with icy roads and frozen snow slush. With this in mind I just wanted to let you know that I will endeavor to get orders out as quickly as possible whilst we wait for the big thaw, but aside from my trips to the post office being a little more perilous than usual, please be aware that the Royal Mail are experiencing disruptions to their services in some areas as well (Please see their website HERE for more info) so your orders may arrive a little later than usual...

In the meantime, here are some shots of the late evening and early morning snow and sky we've had...for all it's coldness and disruption, the wintertime weather is very, very beautiful:

There's a few more images of this ilk over on my Flickr page too: Bonbi Forest Photostream.
