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.

Ferrier visit

Okay. I admit it. With all my own medical problems, I've neglected my horses' feet. So yesterday the ferrier came out to trim as many as he could while there was still daylight. My appointment was 4:00 p.m., so I zipped out of school and drove up the hill. It took me an hour and 15 minutes, from school to the ranch. I was tired. I was having difficulty staying awake and on that mountain road, that is deadly. But, I made it! Due to technical difficulties with my little Nikon camera (apparently I didn't have the memory card all the way in), my photos didn't come out! DARN! Beauty was a perfect lady. "Ho-hum". She didn't need much of a trim. Sunni was his usual "drama queen". He REALLY needed a trim! Gigondas didn't even move one leg! What a good girl! She tends to drag her back legs and so she didn't need much of a trim and it has been a WHILE since she was last done! By the time he got to the mustangs, it was too dark to trim them, so he will come back next week. What's funny is that after that, I wasn't tired and the drive home was effortless! I got home and warmed up some chicken parmesean from last night and went to bed! What a life, eh? I only got a couple of photos of Beauty yesterday and these were taken after the ferrier was done.

Glad the horses were good. Please be careful on that road.
