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.

Busy day Saturday!~

Phew~what a day yesterday! Why is it that our weekends always go by so quickly and the weekdays just drag ON and ON? Anyway, I headed up the hill before 8 a.m. and arrived at the ranch. This is the weekend that the Peruvian Paso Association is meeting at the ranch, so the arena was raked, a tent was set up, and trucks and trailers were arriving. I didn't take any of my horses out, but instead brushed them all. I found Quad's favorite spot on his neck and he STRETCHED out for more! And, Sunni came to me when I called him! GOOD BOY! Gigondas got a good brushing and so did Cali and Scout. They all got their beet pulp and psyllium. Then, after I drove down the hill, I stopped in to see my cousin, Valerie, at an art show in Rancho Mirage. I didn't get a good photo of her booth, but the show will be back today, so I will ask her if I can get a couple. She sells her paintings as well as some note card packs of them. It was good to visit with her. Then, off to our daughter's new house! She just got the keys yesterday and she and her fiance are busy putting sealer on all the grout for their tiles. We drove down to their new house, not to help, but to provide "moral support"!!! Here are some pics from yesterday. Today will be another busy day!
