Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Our dog meets THE HERD!

Well, it FINALLY happened! Our German Shepherd, Rommel, met THE HERD! We've been taking him to the vet up the hill lately for treatment of his mange problem, which was misdiagnosed by our vet down here in the desert. Apparently the treatment that they wanted to start him on would have actually WORSENED his condition! Thank goodness for small-town, old-fashioned vets, who STILL do their own lab work!!! Anyway, even though he has lost some hair, his eyes look normal, his facial hair is growing back, and he is showing signs of life! He was pretty dull and lifeless with his demodectic mange.

So, here are some pictures of Rommel with "The Herd". Also, please note Sunni's teeny tiny tail, thanks to Cali, the palomino. Hmmmmm.......Also see Scout's little tail.
