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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, November 30, 2014.

"F" is for faces (animal)~ABC Wednesday 022410





































































Instead of doing another post about my horses, for ABC Wednesday, this week, I decided to go back through our archived photos and see what else we had stored. (Yes, my desktop is still in the shop. It is having the hard drive pulled out and transferred to an external hard drive. Good-bye, old computer!) Hubby had these photos on his hard drive, so last night I sat down and went through them. "F" is for FACES, and I found all these examples, including both Scout and Cali, right after they came to Southern California from Wyoming, as yearlings. Look how FUZZY they were! I also found one of Beauty and Gigondas. Yes, they could eat together and share their hay! They had been together for about 4 months before I was able to bring both of them to Southern California from Washington state. Isn't it FUN to see all the FACES of these animals? Most of these other photos were taken at the Living Desert Reserve, in Palm Desert, CA. A coyote is on the bottom, and there is a FOX in there, too! The goose and peacock pics were taken at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, in Arcadia, CA, near my parents' home. ABC Wednesday for February 24, 2010.
