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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Why I didn't blog today 080811
I didn't have time to do a post this morning because of my car. I took it to the local HONDA dealer Saturday because I got an email that stated there was a recall for faulty software which affected the transmission. And, I needed an oil change anyway and also needed them to reset the code for my radio, since I bought a new battery last week. Apparently the dealer has to reset the code for the clock/radio after one purchases a new battery...hmmm..they forgot to inform me of that at the time. So, off I went to the dealer on Saturday. Fortunately, hubby was off work and so we drove around and did errands. When they called me to pick it up, they told me it was ready. It wasn't. Hubby drove home and I was left stranded there. When I finally picked it up, I found, to my horror, that the brakes on the right front side were going thump, thump, thump and the car was vibrating when I braked. Since they were only open another 25 minutes, I drove home and called them. So, I had to return early this morning so that a mechanic could PROPERLY repair my brakes. I sat for two hours and finally drove it home, without thumping and vibrating....(shaking head...) So, I didn't have time to post anything today, but I'll be back tomorrow...horse lesson day!
