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.

Shadows at the Living Desert Reserve~Shadow Shot Sunday~033113

So yesterday our daughter and SIL wanted to meet us up at the Living Desert Reserve and walk around.  We both bought our memberships and then walked around for two HOURS!  Turns out, the LDR was also having Easter egg hunts, which explains the hundreds of kids and couples with kids in strollers!  :-)  Still, it was a lovely morning to be there.  The two cheetahs were out, chewing on bones.  It has been so rare in the past to actually SEE them!  We saw the baby giraffe, too, and the mother and father.  Father giraffe was interested in some tall grass on our side of the fence and, with his long tongue, he was able to get it.  By 11:00 a.m., however, we were all tired and hungry, so off to breakfast we went!  I took these photos in the African village section of the park.  I always LOVE the shadows there.  Shadow Shot Sunday for March 31, 2013...MAYBE our granddaughter will arrive today?  If not, our daughter will have her labor induced tomorrow.   Shadow Shot Sunday for March 31, 2013.  Happy Easter!
