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.

Back in the corral

Scout and Cali are back together in the big corral up by the tack room. Cali had been in her own corral for a couple of months and Scout had been in her own, down by Quad and Sunni. Gigondas had the big orral to herself and enjoyed all the room to run! She enjoyed her two neighbors (see header photo!), but the owner was bringing back one of her stallions, who had been out for training. So, it was time for "musical horses"! Gigondas went back to her corral (where Cali had been), and Cali and Scout came back to the big one. Phew! There isn't an empty corral at the ranch right now, so I had to double up with Scout and Cali. And, it took about 30 seconds to establish who was boss! Cali gave Scout some 'tude, but it didn't last long! Scout definitely is "numero uno"! I spent Saturday brushing both of them and picking up their feet. Scout is very good now about having her feet picked up and Cali has always cooperated. We had Santa Ana winds this past weekend and the ranch owners were gone, so I didn't want to push my luck and take any of them out on Sunday. Gigondas and Sunni had a nice romp (separately) in the arena on Friday, so next weekend, I'll rotate the other ones out for some exercise and weed-eating. It was nice having a long weekend, four days, and after this next LONG week at school, I'll have only two days of school the following week, then five days off for the Thanksgiving break! Whoo, hoo!

One thing nice about the holidays if you have a regular job, you get some days off!
