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 OTHER horses

Now, Cali can't hog the camera ALL the time! Dad took the previous set of photos, so I decided to take some after my long encounter with the rake in the corral. Phew! That wore me out! The big red horse is "Gigondas", the LOVE of Dad's life! No. I'm NOT jealous! Gigondas was found on the Internet, on a feedlot up in WA state, days away from being shipped to the LAST FEEDLOT before slaughter. She is a thoroughbred. Dad always wanted a "big red" horse. HA, ha! I found him one. She took one look at him and fell in love! She tolerates me, but LOVES him! (go figure!) She does have some issues and we are working with her on those (she doesn't like her ears touched, but she's getting better). We just love her to pieces!
Then, there's Scout and Sunny. Scout is one of our 2 year old mustang fillies! She is already the ALPHA horse and bosses Sunny and Cali around! Hmmmm......
That's Dad with Scout, Cali, and Sunny. We have Gigondas in her own pen. She WAS the alpha mare, but got into some little snit fits with Scout and we decided to separate them. Now, maybe it is time to separate Scout from Cali and Sunny as she relentlessly chases Cali off her food. Any ideas or suggestions?
Yes, that's Cali hogging the picture again! Dad is giving her a friendly rub! She is a sweetie pie!
