This has to be one of the best snow horses I’ve seen!
21 year old Christina Walters of Chimacum, Wa., has been building snow horses since she was 9 years old. Horses that she could ride.
Each year her snow ponies got a bit bigger. In 2008 she and her sister Kim built this impressive steed. It took several days to sculpt. She started with the legs, added the body, then built the neck, head and tail.
Building the horse meant hauling hundreds of pounds of snow to the location — guess they don’t have the kind of snow we have here in the Northeast this year. With more than 3′ of snow on the ground, our greatest problem would be clearing a place to put the horse!
In any case, may Christina serve as an inspiration for all of us. When there’s too much snow to ride, there is always an alternative.
