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.

Horse bath






















Why is it that as soon as we are done grooming our horses, THEY go out and roll in the dirt? It happens every time....makes 'ya wonder who's smarter, right? And, look at Sunni and Beauty. THEY aren't rolling in the dirt (this time!) Horses are funny.

Actually, it probably IS smarter behavior than ours. Flies are more attracted to sweet smells -- like shampoo and conditioner -- and the dirt masks it. ;o)

Aren't they silly!

This is how my sons take their baths too:)

Rolling must feel really good to them - my favorite is when I bathe my grey mare and she promptly rolls in the grass, getting green stains all over (which are next to impossible to remove)!

LOL ..they're really enjoying themselves, though :-)

Beautiful horses..
