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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Who? What is it?

Do you know who this is? I brushed her and groomed her Saturday. The wind was blowing and I got this photo! I'll tell you tomorrow (hehehehehe!)

UPDATE on horse slaughter here in America. Don't think it won't happen here. It's already happening ILLEGALLY! WARNING: graphic images. Do not click on the photos! This is an article from NBC, Miami.
http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/From-Race-Horse-To-Main-Course.html Also, Joe, from TB Friends today talks about a KB who proudly announces "harvesting horses" like they are tomatoes! It's just sick, sick, sick! HORSES are NOT tomatoes! I'm really upset that some people are in horse slaughter just for the $$$ and have NO compassion or sympathy for these animals! If you wish to read more about horse slaughter here in America, please read my post from 032809..."Please don't eat our horses.". I'll leave it up to you.

Beautiful mane. We've just got to do something about this illegal slaughter of horses. It's hard to know where to start especially when you just know no one in congress or the senate or whoever gives a damn.I've sent numerous letters and requests to my state legislators and get nothing back but a form letter. It's seems like a losing battle.

I love it when the wind blows through a horses mane. We had some wind to yesterday, and I tried to get some pictures of Dusty.

Cheryl,
I have never looked at pictures of horse slaughter because if I did I think I would loose my mind. Thanks so much for the warning.

I think we stand a much better chance of protecting horses now Democrats are in charge. Our own Congresswoman (R) has always voted in favor of horse slaughter and it drives me crazy that horse lovers are ignorant of this and vote for her.

On a lighter note; your horses are gorgeous! I envy the fact you have a wonderful cousin to help you train. We're very isolated here, but I remember from years ago when I lived in England, how nice it was to board a horse where there was lots of other people for moral support or to go on fun rides with. I have been trying to talk my husband into selling our ranch and moving back to England. I have been looking into the cost etc of shipping horses there. It probably won't happen but it's fun to dream about.
