WINNER - Rasta Loves the Snow
“This boy is from Alberta — maybe that’s why he likes to stand in the snow. Rasta is a Quarter Horse-Appaloosa cross and we’ve had him more than 12 years now, ever since he was a weanling,” says Kellie Gorosh of Black Creek, BC.

1ST RUNNER-UP - Yukon Free range Horses
“My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to score a job keeping an eye on 10 outfitter horses, who were free-ranging for the winter in Yukon Territory,” says Joy Beamish of Smithers, BC. “They gained weight on all the forage, braved the cold without a shiver, and proved what hardy animals horses are! These horses are owned by Cosco’s Yukon Outfitting, and are mostly draft, Fjord, and Quarter Horse crosses. Winter is their season off from work, where they enjoy being free-range, natural horses!”

2ND RUNNER-UP - First Snow Fall - Winter Whiteout
“Last winter we had one of the largest dumps of snow in record on Vancouver Island,” says Chelsea Hanna of North Saanich, BC. “It was Levi’s first time out playing in the snow, and he had a great time. I’m sure he was really celebrating some time away from his dreaded blanket. There’s something so serene about a horse against a whiteout background, really drawing out their powerful features.”
