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.

Fires from lightning
Yes...sigh...there was more lightning and thunder today. I don't EVER remember a September this wet! And, I've lived here now for 34 years. I should have run out and bought my wildflower seeds and thrown them out front, but I didn't. The rains always make them sprout, so I guess I've missed my chance. Anyway, our local paper ran these photos of a lightning strike which caused a fire here in town on Tuesday. *** NOT MY PHOTOS ***
