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!

Gigondas




Don't think Gigo didn't have fun, too, this weekend! After all, she got lots of attention on Sunday. And, what did she do? Yup. She ate weeds! Look at the little piggie eating weeds!

Cheryl - I'm curious as to how your friend is doing this week after spending time with the horses. Is she more relaxed and at peace? I'm always fascinated with the healing power of horses. I have an autistic cousin who can only rise above his limitations when he's around horses.

Have you ever taken your students on a field trip to see the horses? I know that would be a handful and you'd have to keep them at a distance for liability reasons.

Yep - ours do that too.

Don't ya just hate picking those burrs out of the halters and manes? Of course, the horses don't seem to mind at all.

She's probably a gourmand eating those weeds. They probably taste like spices and herbs and serve to liven up the grass. :)

I love your header photo!

Ours eat weeds, too--they just love to graze! It's very relaxing for them.
