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.

Quad and snow~That's My World 072010

Ha! remember these days? This was last January. Snow!!! Ahhhh....beautiful snow! Now that we are in the middle of the hottest month of the year, I long for these days. At least when it is cold, the horses have their winter coats and we can layer our clothing. What are we supposed to do in the summer? I went out yesterday morning to weed whack the front grass and I was covered by sweat from head to toe in 5 minutes! So, I came inside, sat down, and put a wet cloth over the back of my neck. Phew! And, more hot weather is forecast (above 108 degrees) for the rest of the week. The only hope is that our mornings will be about 79 to 78 degrees, which means I can get out and mow the lawn early! That's My World for Tuesday, July 20, 2010. Forecast today? 108 degrees.

Keep thinking 'snow', it might cool you down! Otherwise you could always think of the rainy UK! It's been raining here for over a week!

Your horses are looking so good. I hear you when it comes to the heat. We have had more than enough here in Rio Rancho, NM, too. I sweat sitting under the air conditioner. No way to do any work with the horses. One of us would pass out with a heat stroke. But yesterday we had rain. And today it is only 66 degrees at 8 am . Wonder of wonder. And it is cloudy and I hope it stays that way all day. I will take the horse quiz.
