“I’m all frozen Mum, and my hair has gone white! I’ve long ici­cles in my tail too but I’m not both­ered. I love gal­lop­ing around in the snow but I didn’t do so well at ice skat­ing. I went for a drink at my pond and but the wa­ter had gone so I took a step out to find it and... whoopsie... I’m not do­ing that again.” This is Os­car Sausage, our 9hh Shet­land, do­ing just fine in -20 de­grees which fol­lowed a big snow dump. It lasted a week but he did just fine and not a shiver shown. Stick­ing my fin­gers into his hair, the in­side layer was al­ways dry and warm. My Percheron was dou­ble-rugged though!
