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 update~November 1, 2009











My good friend and fellow blogger, Molly, went with me yesterday to go visit my horses up in our local mountains. She greatly misses her own horse, but will soon be bringing her up to our desert, so she has to get some "horsey smells" whenever she can! We love talking and just doing what we can with my herd. So, yesterday, we took Quad down to the arena. Our mountains have already had some nights with frost, so all the horses are getting their winter "woolies". Quad, too. It is interesting to see how his coat is getting longer and thicker! And, he has beautiful dapples now! He's still a little thin, but his feet are all healed now, he has settled in, and he enjoys his outings in the arena. I still haven't seen him run yet, but yesterday he did trot a bit and he kicked up his heels and took a good roll in the dirt. Here are some pics from yesterday.

Lovely boy. Nice to hear his feet are healed and he is putting on weight.
