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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Afternoon walks

I'm thinking about taking up my walking plans again, but doing it in the afternoon.  I just don't have time in the mornings and I'm too rushed.  I HAVE to be at school by 7:45 a.m. and it takes 30 minutes to get there, so I'd mostly just be walking in the dark anyway in the mornings, but afternoons are perfect!  Maybe I'll go up to the Living Desert (if I can get there before 4:00 p.m.) or go up to the Santa Rosa visitor center (which is open until 4:00 also, but the grounds are open...) or just go down to the park.  I usually just come home, fill up the bird feeders (I need a new one as my multiple bird feeder finally broke and crashed to the ground...), give the dogs a peanut butter treat from Trader Joe's, check Facebook, sit down, and COLLAPSE!  Oye!  It would actually be better for me to do my walk and then come home and collapse!

That is an awesome picture! Just think how good walking is for you! :) I think it is pretty awesome that you have an old spinning wheel. I bought one but haven't wanted to learn yet. I enjoy the weaving part much more at this time.

Me and a couple of other girls started a hiking group a little of a year ago. We've stuck at it, 3 times a week for about 1-1.5hrs each time. I didn't loose any weight but I sure feel better and I wear a (slightly) smaller size :) Get hiking! You won't regret it.
