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.

Quad gets a trim!

As I stated yesterday, I had a new ferrier and his assistant trim three of our horses Saturday~~Quad, Gigondas, and Cali. Quad, of course, was a perfect gentleman. This is old stuff for him and he's used to it. He never moved an inch. In fact, at one point, he was so relaxed, he closed his eyes! What a guy! I'm hoping that since Hubby is off, like me, for two weeks, I can take a short ride on Quad this vacation. I LOVE this new ferrier! He does all the horses at the ranch and he's so calm and confident with the horses, they just stand still for him. NO DRAMA!!! What a difference!!! See what a good boy he was? Of course, he got a treat of some sweet feed after his ferrier visit! GOOD BOY, QUAD!

You are very fortunate with your farrier - but then Quad's quite the good boy too!

Nice job Quad. It is nice when you have a farrier that the horses like. I hope you get a ride in this will be grand to see you riding again
