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, October, 2014. The roses are blooming!

This Weekend


This weekend, we are leaving the very minute school is out on Friday and driving to Las Vegas to attend a mustang training clinic at Shiloh Horse Rescue, which is 30 miles outside of Vegas. Here's the link with info and the photo is BB (the baby) and his mom!

http://shilohhorserescue.rescuegroups.org/info/display?PageID=8115 I'm so excited! This will be our second visit to Shiloh Horse rescue and I can't wait to see all the horses there! There's a baby, born to a pregnant feedlot mare, named "BB" and he is a HANDFULL!!! Then, on Sunday, we'll be driving out to Red Rock Canyon and take pics. Then home...sigh...Only 32 more days of school and then SUMMER VACATION! Frankly, I've never looked forward to summer vacation like I am this year. My class has been a handful this year and we are in the middle of the state testing window and I'm EXHAUSTED! In fact, I was too tired to drive up to the horses yesterday afternoon, so I wasn't able to check in on them. But, I'm looking forward to the clinic this weekend. Apparently Joe will also be at the Extreme Mustang Makeover in Norco on May 14 and 15th and I may also go to that! My friend Barb wants to go, so I'll check in with her and see if that is still a happening thing! We are having dinner with our son and baby Ben tonight and then tomorrow afternoon, I have to have a filling refiled (Oh, joy!). Phew! What a busy week! Note to Jill: I posted this photo of BB and Nevada. I hope I have your permission to do so!
