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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Quad closeup


Quad wanted to hang around me on my last visit and he pretty much just followed me around his corral. That's really a first. Most visits, he's pretty aloof. Yes, he tolerates me, but on this visit, he actually seemed to want some attention! So, he got groomed and got lots of talking and touching! And, he got some SWAT on his face. The flies, as you all know, are HORRIBLE this year! ACK! I put on an Avon sunscreen with bug repellant and got bit by a fly! Hmmmm..... I'll be driving up to the horses early this morning as it is supposed to be 112 degrees here in the desert today and 114 degrees by Friday. ACK! The humidity from the weekend is gone and it is dry here this morning, so it should be a good day to do "horse chores". I'd like to take him out for a bath as he insists on rolling in his manure pile!

He is such a lovely horse. Our flies are horrible here too - it was a great year for bugs. I can't use fly masks in the general pasture so resort to applying SWAT on the face too.

I do not know what hot is! I hope this is a low humidity hot.
