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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, April 2014. The roses are blooming!

NorCal trip June 2008


Well, we had a wonderful trip to Northern California! We stayed 2 days in Paso Robles, and visited wineries, 2 days in Santa Rosa to visit MORE wineries and a dear friend and her horses, and 1 night in Sacramento. I got to visit TB Friends, near Sacramento, in Woodland, and meet my hero, JOE! He and his wife Cathy are so warm and friendly! Art and I immediately felt at ease with them and soon we were all joking around! We got to see some very beautiful horses there, horses that were race track "discards" at only 3 years of age! But, you know, it wasn't depressing! Joe and Cathy do such a WONDERFUL job with them and the horses are calm and friendly! We really enjoyed our visit with TB Friends!

Sounds like a wonderful trip. I intend on getting over to 101 this summer and doing some wine tasting in that special central coast. I love the wines from Paso Robles up thru the Salinas valley.

It was great to see you and Art! The herd seemed to enjoy the extra attention and treats, so I'm sure they'll remember their Auntie and Uncle; but you know this means next time they see you, they'll be expecting treats again! Little piggies!
