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.

Ranch fences~Friday's Fences~112913

We drove by the ranch that my parents owned back in the 60's.  It is near Bonsall, CA, which is near Vista and San Diego.  It is actually a mountain away from Camp Pendleton Marine Base and I remember, as a kid, hearing the Marines practicing with their artillery.  Forty years ago those hills weren't covered with the houses and ranches which are there now.  I could go riding all day and hear nothing but the buzz of a rattlesnake by the side of the road.  My dad actually put the aluminum on the barn and it is still there.  Friday's Fences for November 29, 2013.  To visit Friday Fences, please go to:

Things have changed a lot. This looks like it's still a lovely place.
