Taken at Hall Farm, in Snetterton, the hardy horses can be seen in the deep snow with their muzzles also covered.

Justina Smith, assistant centre manager, said the horses and ponies don’t mind the colder weather and have coats and shelters to take cover in if needed.

She said: “The horses do well in these temperatures. We have got them a lot of hay and they keep themselves warm from the inside out.”
