The ranch where I board my horses. That's Sunni in the arena, February 2016.
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.

It's HOT here!!!
It was 85 degrees here in the desert yesterday. And, it will be 86 here today. We are already having some desert shrubs and perennials, like this one, bloom. The freeways are lined by yellow bushes which are blooming. The grapes are leafing out in the vineyards.Robins are plentiful, as well as cedar waxwings. I spotted two yellow flowers blooming up on Highway 74, the road through our local mountains. Aaahhhhh.....SPRING! I ordered 1/4 pound of sunflower seeds, black-eyed Susan seeds, and zinnia seeds from American Meadows and I'm going to plant them this weekend.
