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, April 2014. The roses are blooming!

Free to run~~Cali











It's been quite a while since I took Cali down to the arena for a romp. She and Scout have a large paddock and, frankly, the weather this winter has just been awful. Rain, snow, freezing rain...But now it looks like Spring is FINALLY on the way! We are forecast to have our warm temps last through the weekend. YEAH! I can start washing each horse and getting the mud off of them! Quad is especially covered with mud and I can't seem to get it all brushed off! Are your horses this muddy? Cali was pretty easy to brush and she wasn't covered in mud. She enjoyed her romp in the arena. It was so windy this day that I didn't take any other horse out! Even she spooked three times walking back to her paddock! And, that isn't like her. She is normally a very calm horse.

Gorgeous girl!

Do you let your horses out in the arena all together sometimes? I bet they would have a blast!
