Powder Snow are loose and allow most of the entities that walk over them, to fall or get trapped inside it. Some of the exceptions are rabbits, endermites, silverfish, shulkers, vexes and foxes. These mobs can walk over powder snow without falling in.

Other entities get stuck or move very slow while being in Minecraft Powder Snow. Mobs can fall through it, but do not take suffocation damage. However, mobs trapped for period of time start taking freezing damage instead. Freezing deals 1 HP damage per 2 seconds to every entity. Players can wear Leather Armor to stop freezing, and this can be applied to Horses as well.
