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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Here comes the Queen (Scout)...
Look how DARK she is in winter! I can't figure out why she is so dark in winter, and so light in summer...shouldn't it be the other way around? Okay...several of you have written that it's because in the winter, her dark coat absorbs the light, and in the summer it reflects it. That makes sense! She sure is dark here!
