The ranch where I board my horses. That's Sunni in the arena, February 2016.
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.

I went KERSPLAT this morning!
Yes, I did. I went KERSPLAT, face first, right onto the vinyl kitchen floor after my first outing of the day. I had to go down to the stupid car to find our coffee as the 8 cup Mr. Coffee just wouldn't do it for us. I was fine outside. I never slipped. But, once back in the cabin, in my eagerness to come in from the freezing cold (it snowed here all night last night)...whirling and swirling snow...I slipped on the vinyl kitchen floor and went face first down. Hubby, of course, in his wisdom said, "WHY in the WORLD are you still wearing those boots?" (Or something to that effect...I've had to edit what he REALLY said...) To which I replied, "Don't TOUCH me!" as I lay on the kitchen floor trying to figure out if I'd broken my back (no, I just landed on both kneees and my right one is now painfully swollen)...BUT, my beloved Nikon camera went flying across the room and now the viewfinder is broken and I can't move any of the settings. He finally did take pity on me (as I was in tears...) and called around and found a place that MAY be able to fix it for $150.00. I LOVE that camera and I take her everywhere with me. She still takes photos, but I can't adjust any of the manual settings, so I'm stuck on "speed" mode and 1/60th of a second. It snowed all night and the roads are icy and it is starting to snow here again. Frankly, I'm looking forward to returning to home and getting some rest. There's nothing to do here and hubby is refusing to take the car anywhere today, even though other folks are driving up and down the road to Mammoth...
