Yes it was this cold. Yes, my kids thought I was crazy when I pulled over, got out of the car while it was snowing and proceeded to take pictures. You see they're used to me pointing my cameras at *them* – not at cute cold horses dressed in fancy coats. Benjamin was quite confused by this. "Why do they have coats on? They already have coats!" At this point, I couldn't disagree. Then people drove by and thought I was weird and suspicious so I got self-conscious (must work on that).
Or maybe they were thinking "look at the crazy photographer that isn't wearing a coat in the snow! While she's taking pictures of horses wearing coats!!"
So I got back into the car, tucked away the camera and we were on our way.
