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.

Beauty on the move!

I'm counting on Beauty to be my riding horse. She is very calm, collected, and thoughtful. But, Saturday, when I let her out in the arena, she was all ENERGY! Whoosh! I let her go and she ran off! She ran and ran! She even ran into the gate! YES! I need to buy a new chain and lock for it as soon as I go back up the mountain. Luckily she wasn't hurt! Anyway, these are some pics of my "nice, calm" riding horse!

Yeah, isn't she gorgeous? And, to think she was on a dirty, disease-ridden, filthy feedlot!!! POOR BABY! She is the most calm and patient horse!~I dearly love her! She and Gigondas had "feedlot crud" on their tummies and it took quite a few baths to get it off! And, a few months!!!!
