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.

Hot Walker


The ranch owners are putting in a used hot walker in the mustangs' old corral.  I'm glad that something is going in there.  It was really depressing looking at where Scout and Cali used to be, especially without Cali.  Scout is now moved down across from Quad.  I don't really think she likes it there because there isn't that much room.  There's another huge corral next to their old one and I may take her up there for some exercise.  She doesn't really like the round pen, either, as she can't see any other horses from up there and she screams.  Of course, now that she doesn't have Cali, maybe she won't scream?  It should be a nice weekend, with temps here in the desert in the mid-80's!  YES~can you believe it?  We MAY drive out to Anza-Borrego state park on Saturday, however, to take photos of the wildflowers (that is, if hubby isn't working...).  If he is at work, I'll drive up to the horse ranch.  Here are a couple of pics of work on the hot walker.  You KNOW it's cold if you see Cathy, the ranch owner, bundled up in a hat and jacket!!!
