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.

Quad takes a romp!!! November 16, 2009
















Yesterday was another one of those postcard-clear, beautiful autumn afternoons. Hubby and I didn't have much time to work with the horses, since we had to get back down to the desert and help our daughter with her new house. But, up the hill we went. It was crisp, clear, and breezy. "Breezy", ha! Leaves were blowing all over the ranch. Hmmmm....definitely NOT a day to take Sunni out. Instead, Gigo was at her gate, begging for a run. She walked very well down to the arena, WAITED for me to unhook the lead rope, and took off, running, bucking, and farting! Silly girl! Next was Quad. He needed some time to stretch and walk around the arena, but instead, as soon as I unclipped the lead rope from his halter, he TOOK OFF! RUNNING! And kicking, and farting, too! It was the most we've seen him run! And, run, he did! He actually enjoyed his time there and got ALL the kinks out! Here are some pics of his afternoon in the arena. He actually did spook at the leaves a couple of times! Oooohhhhhh, those "horse-eating" leaves!

He looks good out there running. Seems his spirit is picking up with your care.
