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.

horses and flowers~That's My World 062309

I drove up to the ranch yesterday to work with Cali picking up and cleaning her feet. She and Sunni are in a large corral together and, of course, HE wanted Mom to pay attention to him, so he followed me around! Cali decided she didn't wish to be haltered (sigh...) so I sent her around the corral until she stood and faced me. I'd left the lead rope on the fence, so of course, she had to go investigate it! Silly Cali! I "tied" her to the fence and said, "UP" and she lifted each foot for me! YEAH! Progress! Then, of course, I had to do Sunni. He stood absolutely still and I cleaned his feet, too. Then, it was off to get the pink SWAT. ALL the horses got a couple globs of SWAT on them. Yes, it's FLY SEASON! But, the sky was blue, there was a slight breeze yesterday, and it was GOOD to see the horses again!

Isn't it lovely when they pick up their feet and stand stock-still while you care for their them.

I love the landscape shot with all the blue flowers.

So gentle are these images. Horses are such beautiful creatures I never tire of their images.
