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.

Flowers and award

I received another beautiful award from Linda at Beautiful Mustang (, the Friends Award. This really means a lot to me, because, like others, I feel I have made some wonderful friends here in Internetland! Here's what the award says:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight more and include the cleverly written text into the body of your awards"

I thought about it for a couple of days and I would like to pass it on to these friends and fellow bloggers: I can always count on an early morning comment from either Jack or his DOR! They are both early risers, like me! Thank you for sharing your world and Jack's! Lisa is also always sending me comments or a laugh! Thank you, Lisa! Get well soon! T has been my inspiration for months! She never fails to visit my blogs and give me an honest appraisal! Thank you, T! Kathie always has a beautiful view of the desert and something interesting to say! Thank you, Kathie! Amanda is another beautiful blog to visit and I LOVE her photographs! I try to be like Amanda, but it's pretty hopeless! Diane has a beautiful desert blog and I enjoy seeing her view of the desert near Tucson. I recently discovered the Mrs.' blog and now I read it every day! I also recently found this blog from a fellow Californian! It's a hoot, too! in a small town!

Please pick up your award and pass it on to eight others. I decided to post some pretty flowers I saw here in the desert. After yesterday's storm (Idyllwild residents said it was the largest storm in YEARS!)...I thought a little color would be appropriate!!!
Thank you all and a big hug to everybody who visits this blog and my 7 others! Now, go out and enjoy your day!

I love all of your colorful cheerful flowers. Thank you so much for the friends award. That was very sweet of you! Having some computer problems on and off here, so I'm a little slow to catch up with everyone's great posts.
