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.

Gusty!



According to the weather forecaster, it was "gusty" yesterday.  Er, uh...no, it was VERY WINDY and COLD!  It was especially cold up at the horse ranch.  I rolled down the window on the way there and my hand could feel that the air was nearly freezing!  Brrrrrrr!  Hey, for a native Californian like myself, it was cold!  How cold was it up at the ranch?  There was still leftover snow along the northern parts of the horse corrals and I spotted this ice on an empty corral.  But, the sun will be out for the rest of the week and by the end of the week, it will be in the mid-80's here in the desert!  Whoo, whoo!   :-)   All the horses were fine, but they all whinnied for their extra noontime meal!  They sure appreciated it!

Definitely extra food is appreciated in such cool weather! I think I'd be calling out for some too ;)

My goodness, it does look cold judging by your photos! I love that first shot :)
