Winter can be an awesome time of the year when everything is covered in a white blanket! This time of the year is perfect for long walks in the squeaky snow, making angels in the snow, engaging in a snowball fight, making a snowman, you name it! And it's not just humans that love snow, this video is soundproof that animals are equally excited about it as well!

Footage shows a cheeky horse gleefully playing with around in the snow as he would if he were to be all alone. This horse chooses to ignore its surroundings, we mean all the scary looking, probably very hungry wolves and still is determined to remain on his path on having fun in the deep valley snow.

Watch as the playful horse raises his front legs and playfully stands on two limbs, as he is caught up in the moment and goes full play mode! Have you ever seen anything like this? This may be the most cheerful horse we have ever seen! He is playing in the snow like a little kid, regardless of the dangers of his hungry "friends".

A professional wildlife photographer has captured on camera the remarkable moment a brave horse frolicked with a pack of wild wolves. The scene was filmed in Abruzzo, Italy on February 4. In the clip, the horse wanders nonchalantly among six of the predators and then even rolls in the snow as the wolves watch on. Wolves have been known to attack and kill horses, so this behavior is very unusual.

Horses are well known for being beautiful and graceful creatures, and if you are not sure about that just check all the history books and you will see for yourself. However, this amazing horse in this breathtaking video really takes the cake. Of all the horses we’ve ever seen this is by far of one the most graceful and the bravest horse ever!

Horses have been raced competitively for centuries, and horse racing events remain a popular part of human culture. There are five main gaits or ways in which a horse can move; these are called walking, trotting, cantering, galloping and backing. The average speed at which a horse gallops is approximately 48.2 kilometers (30 miles) per hour, but the top speed reported is considerably higher. Amazing!

What makes this video even more interesting is that horses are one the animals who are not brave at all! In spite of their enormous terrifying size, they are amazingly apprehensive. They can be terrified of their own shadow, decline to advance into a stream they've crossed each day since birth and escape in an outright frenzy from a bit of material fluttering in the breeze, potentially killing themselves in the process by slamming through a wall, kicking down entryways or lurching over handcarts. A horse is always a prey animal-never a predator, so they must be on guard at all times. But, not this horse! He is brave and he doesn’t even care about the wolves he just minds his own business!
