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.

Quad and family~Sunday Stills Challenge~060910

Quad is such a goofball!  Did you know he is a great-great grandson of BOTH Secretariat AND Affirmed?  His color comes from his dam, certainly not his sire!  But, alas, in 7 races, he never won.  Fortunately he was retired to TB Friends and he came to me from there through the generosity of a fellow blogger.  I can't wait to drive up to the ranch this morning and visit with the horses.  I also need to check on the remainder of Sunni's tail as Quad is now chewing on it...hmmm...  Sunday Stills Challenge for June 9, 2013. To visit Sunday Stills Challenge (and this week's challenge was horses...), please go to:
