These wonderful wintry pictures show residents at World Horse Welfare’s Norfolk sanctuary enjoying the snow.
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.”
With many of the roads around the county impassible due to snow, staff from the visitor centre and the head office have been helping with the horses.

A 12ft pile of snow has been cleared from the road to the farm and ice freezing over the horses’ water tanks has to be broken a few times a day.
Hall Farm is home to 113 horses which are care for and rehabilitated.
