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.

Oh, how I wish~That's My World for 092909







Summer is still with us...(sigh)...Yesterday it was 107 degrees in the desert. But, starting TOMORROW, temps should be in the 90's. That means we can turn OFF the air conditioners! Oh, how I wish for days like this. This was last November. See the clouds? Can you feel the cold air? Scout and Cali sure enjoyed their day in the arena! That's My World for September 29, 2009.

Cool here in Ohio, almost need to turn the furnace on. I don't think the horses know it is a cloudy day they are having to much fun

Their hooves are sure kicking up the dust. Here it is spring and we had the early rains are just beginning. But I can't wait for more and more sunshine.

My temp this morning on my way to work was 48, now that is a big difference. I would enjoy something in between 107 and 48.
It did warm up this afternoon but the mornings are chilly.
Thanks for sharing.

Eileen, I would GLADLY trade places with you for a few days! We out here are so sick and tired of summer! YUCK! I'm wishing for the first cool weekend this coming one!

You turn off your air conditioners when it's 90 degrees? Seriously? :-O

Anyway, we had a pretty easy summer this year, here in Colorado. A bit too much rain for my tastes, but not as hot as usual. Sadly we're supposed to have a bad winter to go with it. I'm not looking forward to that at ALL.

Lovely day

Yes, Katherine! Once the temps get into the low 90's (HA!), we turn OFF the air conditioners. Remember, it's a DRY HEAT...Looks like for the rest of the week, so we'll be able to turn ours off. We have a special, different rate here in the desert during the summer. We get more kilowatts. We HAVE to! I always check my Edison bill and we actually seldom go much over our summer alotment. I have so many trees on the property that their shade keeps the house cool (relatively speaking). I also close the windows on the west to keep the sunlight out.

I always thought Denver was dry heat too, but 90 degrees means it's pretty hot inside the house. Of course, it could be because we have a little old frame house in nearly full sun at the hottest part of the day, which is late afternoon in Denver... Could also be that since it doesn't usually get over 100 here, 90 feels hotter to us than it does to you. ;o)

Apparently, we had really big winds down here in the valley yesterday, because when I got home from work, I found that the tarp over the haystack had picked up a wooden pallet that it was attached to and flung it around. We had snow in the mountains this morning. All gone now, though. It's supposed to be 25 degrees tonight, so I had better go brush off the blankets.
