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.

Sunni, yellow trees, and snow ~

We had near-record lows here in our desert last night, with more on the way. Our local mountains got a dusting of snow (click on photo to enlarge it). I saw a lot of cars on their way down the mountain that were covered with snow on their hoods and roofs yesterday. There was snow along the road, at the higher elevations that I travel through on my way to the ranch. Those trees that still have leaves have turned yellow and the red maple has lost ALL its leaves! Ahhh...the coming of winter! And, this one looks more severe than last year's! That's my gelding Sunni looking up as I drove into the ranch yesterday on a chilly, windy Sunday.

Great picture, and you are right, winter is defiantly here. We have only gotten flurries but it has gotten cold but still not all that cold and the rain is coming in tomorrow! Yuck, I would almost rather have snow.
