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.

Idyllwild weekend

I took a peek at the availability of our favorite Idyllwild cabin and it was available the weekend of May 10 and 11, so I booked it.  We invited our son, grandson, and his mom to join us, so they did.  We ALL needed a break from the desert and it turned out to be a good choice because it was 100 degrees PLUS down here in the desert this past weekend.  So, up to the pines we went.  Saturday morning we took the little guy to the library and then he didn't want to leave!  He found a book about community helpers and he planted his feet and wasn't going to leave without it, so I checked it out for him.  He also enjoyed playing with all the stuffed animals in the kids' section of the library.  Of course, once back at the cabin, he wanted to go see the fish pond (the cabins have a fish pond full of koi in the middle of the gazebo area...).Oh, and we had to feed the blue jays and squirrels about 20x a day!  Believe me, they were HAPPY we came up there! The cabin manager has a yellow lab named Sully and he dropped by to visit a couple of times.  Then, on our way home, we all stopped to visit the horses.  All are fine, but I need to get up there next weekend and brush them.  Here are a few pics from our weekend.
