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.

Cali's trim

Quad and Cali are our most calm horses. They will be the two that I'll ride (hopefully). Cali isn't trained yet, but she is a very quiet and respectful horse. She always has been. The day after she unloaded from the trailer ride from Wyoming, she came right up to us for a friendly sniff. She's been very people-oriented ever since. Honestly, I think she is just that way! As you know, horses have different personalities and Cali LOVES people! I sometimes feel guilty that she's in a corral with "The Monster" (i.e. Scout), but, in a herd, Cali would still be on the bottom of the pecking order. She just isn't agressive at all. She stood still for the previous ferrier and Saturday she didn't move a foot for our new one! Ho-hum...She's such a doll! Hubby is off work today and we'll be driving back up to the horse ranch. Yesterday it was windy here in the desert and it was worse up in the mountains! It was so cold, I had on four layers..a t-shirt, a turtleneck, my cotton vest, and my jacket. Oh, and insulated gloves! I've GOT to find some lined jeans because the wind just blew right through mine! Any suggestions? The sky was clouding up, so I left for the warmth of the desert before it started to snow. Here are pics of Cali's trim.

She is going to be such a great riding horse. Smart and calm. Your new trimmer sounds great.
