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.

Quad gets some R&R

Quad is really good about letting me know when he wants some R&R in the arena.  He'll come up behind me and nicker softly and nuzzle me.  Then I know he wants out.  So, Sunday I took him down to the arena.  He tried to bolt, but I held on and said, "NO!"  So, he stopped and looked at me and settled down.  Apparently he's also been doing this with my trainer...sigh...So, I lunged him and worked him for a while and then let him go.  Off he went!  I didn't do much other than just hang out with him.  3 more days of school and I'm DONE for the summer, although it's a short one, only 8 weeks.  Gosh, we used to return to school after Labor Day.  Not it's August 22nd!  We're heading up to the Sierras for a week, then back home, and the nights up there are in the low 30's!  It was 107 degrees here yesterday and today should be 109...ugh!  Summer's here...

Sounds like you need some R&R, too. Have a good summer even if it short. Don't let that heat get you down. It has been in mid 90's here. Don't know how you handle those higher temps.
