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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Pack horses and mules






Not far from the cabin is a large meadow full of pack horses and mules.  The horses are all drafts and they are HUGE!  So, of course, while hubby was sleeping in yesterday morning, I drove down there for some horse time.  Some of the horses were eager to come to the fence for some scritches, but some held back.  I spotted a coyote wander out into the meadow when I saw the horses alert to something.  They had plenty of grass to eat and when we drove by in the afternoon (to go to the store to buy a frozen apple pie!)...they were busy eating in the rain.

He was REAL friendly and hung out with me while the other ones wandered off! I'm going back this afternoon for another visit, since they are just down the street from our cabin.
