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.

Well, I'm grounded by hubby today. I was all set to drive up the mountain to go visit the horses and give Cathy my boarding check, but hubby woke up in time to ground me. It's snowing up in the mountains and I drive up some areas over 5,000 feet to get to the horse ranch. Chains are required by the department of transportation, and I'm just not going to take a chance driving up there. I called Cathy and talked to her and she said it wasn't snowing at the ranch...sigh...so I guess I'll just stay home and take it easy today. It is drizzling here in the desert and I may just go out later and run some errands. I did go to the park this morning to feed the ducks again. There's one duck who gets fed by tugging on people's pants and he did it to me again this morning! He doesn't hurt, but he makes his point clear: FEED ME! I'll try to get some photos of him tomorrow morning, if it isn't so darn dark and dreary!!!! In the meantime, here are some pics from last week, right after the snow storm at that time. These photos were taken at 5,000 feet elevation, which is about 500 feet higher than the horse ranch. It didn't have any snow, but you can see it here at these ranches.
