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.

It's raining AGAIN!!!

It's raining here again...sigh...which means it will REALLY be raining up in the mountains this morning. The desert, however, has greened up. There is grass everywhere. The foothills are covered with a greenish tinge. It should be an exceptional year for desert wildflowers, however, with all the rain we have received. So, I'm not sure if we will even drive up to see the horses if it is raining. Yuck. I'll have to wait until the sun is out to check the weather, but it doesn't look like an encouraging day for horse activities. So, how about a photo of an Iceland poppy from earlier this month to cheer you up? Isn't it pretty? These flowers are down by our daughter's home. And, on computer news, hubby dropped off my desktop with the tech guys (AGAIN) and they are sucking off ALL my photos, documents, etc. May it RIP. It is GONE, done for, bye-bye! So, we'll be sharing his laptop. He'll use it at night, and I'll use it early in the morning (since he sleeps late). I am keeping my fingers crossed that they'll be able to save all my photos from my desktop, since it was the one we put EVERYTHING on! DUH! Guess we've learned THAT lesson! Hubby did back up a lot of photos onto an external hard drive, and there are some on this laptop, but he'll have to take the time to show me how to access the hard drive ones so that I don't keep posting the same photos over and over! Have a good day and give your horses a hug from me!

In spite of cold and snow I am heading over to do just as you suggested: Hug the horse.

PS: May I suggest....?
Bite the bullet. Buy a Mac! Sure pc's are a bargain but life's photos are too precious to be left to computers that tend to fall apart...

Sorry about your computer. It's a good reminder to me. I've been meaning to copy all my photos and documents off mine onto one of those USB drives just in case. The other day I had a bit of a scare when my laptop didn't start up.

Lovely flowers.
I hope you get some sunshine tomorrow so you can go visit your horses.
