Snow is one of the cast of equine characters at Finca Las Alturas. She arrived at the farm as a four month old foal and quickly became attached to Patsy, learning to come when her name was called. Which she still does.
As the only white or even light-coloured horse on the farm, Snow is a stand out in the crowd. In a desperate bid to fit in, or so it might seem, Snow is frequently seen rolling in the mud. And even more frequently, she’s seen after she’s been rolling in the mud.
In reality, Snow is an albino so her sensitive, pink skin leaves her highly susceptible to sunburn. She often wears a face mask to keep her nose from getting burned and loves to roll in the mud as additional protection from the sun’s rays. We affectionately refer to this habit as “going to the spa.”
When Snow comes in for a good grooming it kind of does snow, as she has a tendency to shed, especially as the rainy season turns into dry season.
