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.

First thunderstorm on the Rim
We checked into our cabin and about two hours later we had our first thunderstorm. Thunderstorms happen almost daily up on the rim, which is about 8,000 feet above the desert floor below. Over millions of years it was lifted from below an ancient ocean to where it is today. You can find fossils of shellfish at certain areas of the rim. We just sat back and enjoyed the thunderstorm.
