Desert Horses

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.

Blue jays

I always enjoy watching the animals around us, wherever we are, and last weekend, there were blue jays all around the cabin.  I could hear them not too far off, so during one of our visits to the local store, I bought some peanuts by the pound.  It didn't take long for the blue jays to discover them.  I put them out on the porch wooden railing and they were soon squawking eagerly to announce their presence!  Soon there were about 7 or 8 blue jays after them!  They delighted us for the rest of the weekend and the grandson couldn't wait to put peanuts on the balcony railing every morning.

Fantastic pictures. I love watching the birds myself. I wish I lived out further in the country so that I also got some of the more wilder animals to watch.
