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!

Quad gets a bath and RUNS in the arena! YEAH!
















My friend Molly came up yesterday to help me with the horses. We decided to give Quad a nice shower and shampoo and then lead him down to the arena. His hair is no longer dry and brittle, but he had rolled in manure and I wanted to get it off him. He wasn't a problem at all...stood quietly for his bath and then Molly took him down to the arena. OF COURSE he rolled in the dirt! Then, he got up and RAN and RAN and kicked up his heels! It is so good to see him walking normally and enjoying life! He is such a wonderful, gentle horse! That's Molly saying sweet things to Quad! Here are some pics from yesterday.

He is quite the gentleman and seems like such a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. Curious, smart, sweet.
Thank you for such a lovely day.

Don't you just love letting a horse be a horse? We bought a horse 18 years ago that was never allowed to get dirty. He was kept blanketed in a stall for the first 4 years of his life. We still have him and he loves to get his white coat as dirty as possible.
