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 now have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Cali saddled 072611
Cali was saddled for the first time yesterday and she didn't even buck! Not once. She was a very good girl...calm, relaxed, not afraid. Maia lunged her both directions and she was absolutely fine with the saddle! GOOD GIRL, Cali! And, I can report that her eyes and looking much better. She kept a fly mask on all weekend (I had put a halter over it so that Scout and her neighbors couldn't take it rip it ! I did clean it out a bit, but it looks like it's healing nicely. The vet had to scoop out the ...FLY LARVAE...which were in both eyes (he had to tranquilize her twice!) and he sprayed it when he was done with some kind of sealant so that they couldn't get back in the open sore.Unfortunately, due to a family crisis, I'm not going to get back there for a few days to work with either Sunni or Gigondas...
