This may look real but it's not a totally natural phenomenon. I pulled over onto the grass verge just beyond the barn as this was my designated starting point for my walk. As I was putting my boots on I heard a trickling sound. I went towards the front of the barn and saw this awesome spectacle. On the ground was a solid black rubber hosepipe. There was a small hole in it and water was shooting up into the air to a height just above the roof of the barn and landing on the rooftop. It was running off and has formed overhanging icicles and where it has hit the ground, the long grass has frozen. An awesome sight! I don't know how the hosepipe managed to get a tiny hole in it or where the water was coming from but It was a spectacular sight!
