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.

Self-portrait Sunday morning 11/28/2010

Yup. That's me all bundled up! I currently have bronchitis and I did NOT want to get cold and boy, let me tell was COLD up at the horse ranch about noon today! I waited until it warmed up here in the desert to go up there, knowing it would be cold. There was ice all along the north side of the horses' corrals where Sunni and Quad are housed. Half of their corrals are in the sunlight, but the northern part is not and that's where the ice was. I had on knee-high warm socks, my jeans, two t-shirts, a fleece sweatshirt, and I was still cold! So, I wrapped a cotton pendleton around my middle after adding my hooded Old Navy gray long-sleeved sweater. That was 5 layers of clothing! I had to post a picture of myself for Sunday Stills Challenge, which I did on my desert blog ( and I'm kinda getting into this! Most of the time, however, I wear dirty old clothes since the horses just slobber all over me anyway! And, my hair is usually pulled back since it is usually windy up there and I HATE having it in my face and in the way! Plus, I can't see if it is loose and down! I'm planning on taking more pics in the future! :-) There was snow along the road on the way up to the horse ranch and I'll be posting some of those pics later this next week, along with some pics of the horses. Frankly, I couldn't WAIT to get back into my warm car and head back down the mountain to the desert!!!
