Snow Games Part II – Our Favorite

Yesterday, we shared pictures of the youngsters playing in our snow over the weekend.  But don’t get the impression that the more mature members of The Herd didn’t enjoy the snow.  Let’s prove it with pictures:

Exploring

Sure, we might look like we are being all calm.

Queen sneaks off

But the Queen marches through the snow to the end of the field.

Kiska looks

What do we spy?

Deep on the field

Down at the far end of the field, Queen Natasha the Evil is being, well, joyful.

Kiska Wondering

Always puzzling to The Herd when the Queen suddenly decides to go all puppy.

QNTE smiling

The Queen sure can smile big.

The Need for Speed

“I feel the need for speed!”

Stretch

And the need for really long strides.

Pursuit

Kiska decides to join the games.

Sisters at full speed

The sisters are at warp speed.

Q-Tip

Q-Tip joins the snow races, too.

Stretch

Time for another round!

Can we have snow every weekend?

Can we please have snow every day, hu-dad?

    In the years I have been reading your blog and enjoying your pictures, I don’t think I have ever seen The Evil Queen cutting up in such a fashion! Maybe part of it is her new enclosure, roomier and she can make tracks off -leash.

    Ayla sez: “Now that I am 8 years old, and my Dad, Ice, is 10 years old, it’s good to see the “Senior Herd Members” loving the snow, too. Makes us feel not so foolish when we get out there and act like we’re puppies again, too! Sure looks like QNTE still has it, when she stretches out like that!”

    Wonder if there is a “enjoy running in the snow” sequence in their DNA .
    Wonderful pics – Thanks!

    I love watching animals play in the snow. It is so entertaining. Oh and also little kiddie pools too. My boys just love water. Except baths lol. I need a bigger pool for Bruce. He is so much larger than what Aries was and the last pool I bought Bruce was a puppy lol. He is a 100lb german shepherd. I think I need a bigger kiddie pool lol. Hugs and kisses to the herd.
