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

We spent the weekend up in Pine Cove, which is a little mountain community near Idyllwild.  Our daughter's former middle school band teacher has a house up there and she offered it to us for the entire weekend!  Whoo, 11:00 a.m. checkout!  We had three nights of mountain bliss~ temperatures down into the high 40's and daytime ones in the low 70's!~  What a relief from the desert.  The grandkids came, too and got to enjoy the beautiful meadow back behind the house.  In it were quail and a family of 6 coyotes!  It was fun to watch them in the late afternoons. We drove into town on Saturday and we also hit some terrific garage sales and found baby shoes for 50 cents each!  I bought 7 books at the local library, so I now have my summer reading all planned.  It was a quiet, restful weekend~~one that we ALL needed!  :-)
