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.

Grazing horses, fence, and blue sky~SkyWatch Friday 022610

This Wednesday I travelled home a different way. Instead of taking the freeway ...(BORING), I took the back roads down through Thermal, Coachella, and Indio. I used to take these roads every day when I taught further down in the valley, but now I just take the freeway to and from school. I miss the back roads and since I had some extra time on Wednesday, I decided to grab my camera that morning and revisit them. I'm so glad I did! It is so refreshing to see the date groves, the vineyards, and the horses grazing. There were also two hot air balloons in the sky that morning. SkyWatch Friday for February 26, 2010. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Art, who turns 60 today, and baby Ben, who turns 1 year old!

Great skies, back roads can be the best roads.

What a lovely facility.

I love the horizontal layers in your photos and the lines of the fencing. Beautiful!

We like taking the back roads here in the greater Sacramento area, too.

When I win a few million, I am gonna have fences just like these.

White, green and blue. Such pretty contrasts. I love the back roads, too.
