Fenway Farms

Rime Ice Friesian

We recently had a natural phenomenon here in Wisconsin called Rime Ice. When the weather conditions are just right, rime ice accumulates on trees, fences and other surfaces, resulting in some of the season’s most stunning landscape. It looks like ice needles or feathers which appear white as the ice crystals scatter the visible light. In simple terms, its ice formed by water droplets that are in fog when it’s below freezing. The landscape on the farm was spectacular and we decided to call in a professional photographer and add in our Friesian horses for some beautiful winter photos. Only Fenway Friesian missing is Herman as he was too embarrassed by his winter wooliness. A huge shout out to Tiffany Schmitt for all the great photos. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
