As seen around the Roaring Fork Valley last week, most species, both two-legged and four-legged, deal with winter in their own special way,

A lot of horses, for example, seem to be pretty nonchalant and accept whatever nature tosses at them. Many dogs love to play and stick their heads in the snow, as do a smattering of humans. Some humans use snow as an excuse to dress up their dogs while most humans dress up their kids for warmth. Overall, it appears as if the snow in winter offers an opportunity for adults, kids and most four-legged creatures to take advantage of the fun opportunities it provides.
