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!

Hello from Northern California!!!

Hello and Merry Christmas to everyone from Northern California! We have visited several wineries: Dover, Norman, Tablas Creek, Mazzocco, Sausal, and Ridge! WOW! What great wines! Our car is full of cases of wine! We found a discount tableware outlet and I bought several items, including napkins, plates, and tablecloths! We visited Domaine Carneros and our daughter and her BF tried 5 kinds of sparking California wine. Hubby and I took pictures outside, even though it was raining! Tomorrow we visit sister-in-law and Burgess Cellars for a turkey dinner! Oh, and we stopped at Healdsburg and found our favorite bakery/restaurant: Cousteaux, the oldest bakery in Healdsburg. I'll post pics when we get home, but it was absolutely BEAUTIFULLY decorated for the holidays! Today we are in Sonoma, CA and I found a great Basque cafe/bakery. We bought sandwiches there for lunch and bread for dinner! Friday we visit Joe at TB Friends and then head on home!
