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, October, 2014. The roses are blooming!

Wildflowers~Sunday Stills Challenge for July 5, 2009






















A couple of quick notes...SOMETHING BIG is in the works~ I don't want to comment yet, but give me a week. Syndi knows of what I speak! Thank you, Syndi, of The Journeys of Captain Jack Splash. You have been a wonderful friend and support and I don't know what I would have done without you and your generosity!!!
And, we're off to Arizona for a week. We have to take our vacations when hubby can get away. We LOVE Prescott and Flagstaff, so that is where we are headed. I really didn't wish to leave the horses, but my family believes this will help the healing process and are all urging me to go. And, the horses are in good care. Thank you, Cathy!

These wild sunflowers were growing out by Sunset Crater when we visited Flagstaff on our last trip. I loved them and spent a lot of time walking out by the edge of their field admiring them. Aren't they beautiful? I also love Sunset Crater. It is another one of those mystical, spiritual places that we enjoy visiting.

The sunflowers are so cheery. I read your post on the passing of your mare and I send you hugs, I know what it's like to lose your favourite horse. I loved the story of the cloud.

Lovely flowers and vistas! I enjoyed my visit to Sunset Crater years ago. I was hiking behind people talking the entire time about some other place they had visited and wondered how they could be taking in the beauty of the crater.

Thanks for sharing, and sorry about the loss of your horse.
