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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Quad and the farrier
Quad, as usual, was a perfect gentleman for the farrier yesterday. I believe the farrier and his assistant worked on...14 horses? I lost count! It was a VERY LONG DAY and after I drove back to the desert, ran home, took a shower, packed my bag, and then drove for over 2 hours past the California border to Quartzite, Arizona! Phew! By then, I could barely keep my eyes open! Hubby wanted to get out of town and the only place we could find open was over here at Desert Ridge, outside of Scottsdale! Anyway, I have NO photos of Sunni because he was blowing marbles and acting like he was going to be eaten by the farrier. I had lunged him that morning, picked up all of his feet, told him to be a good boy, but he wasn't having ANYTHING to do with the farrier. Nope. No way! Fortunately, Solomon is very patient and calm and eventually got all of Sunni's feet done! Here he is working with Quad. He loves Quad! Sunni? Er. uh, not so much!
