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.

Snit fit~~Camera Critters June 22, 2009

We drove up to the ranch yesterday morning and it was so good to see the horses! First, hubby let Gigondas out for a run in the arena and, unfortunately, she got away from him before he could release the lead rope (again...sigh). She ran around, dragging it behind her. So, I walked into the arena, told her "stay" (which she did) and walked right up to her and unclipped it. GOOD GIRL! And, away she went! Then it was Beauty's turn. She pretty much self-exercises, going around the arena about 5-6 times. Scout REALLY wanted in, but she's so dominate, we decided to let her wait. We brought Sunni down, too, since he and Beauty get along together very well. Oh, boy! Now Scout was REALLY upset! "I WANT OUT NOW!" Here are some pics of her "snit fit". Yes, she eventually got her turn. Today I'll work on Cali picking up her feet for the ferrier visit tomorrow. It was good to see the horses yesterday, after our week-long vacation to Northern California. They are all shiny now with their summer coats.
Thank you to Captain Jack Splash for another award! I'll have to think about what I want to say for a couple of days, after I get everything put away here at home! Vacations can be a LOT of work! Thank you, Jack!

Mare hissy fits are actually funny - so long as you're not too close when they happen!

Scout I am with you about not getting out to play...that definitely called for a fit. I threw one yesterday because the baby couldn't come with me to the arena.

Good girl Gigondas for listening to you. She looked great out there. Her coloring is really striking. Does she change for winter and summer. She looks lighter now.
So pretty!
