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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, April 2014. The roses are blooming!

SURPRISE!

The ranch owners were pleasantly surprised today with the arrival of a colt.  Their pinto mare was pregnant, but they didn't know when the foal was due.  She didn't bag up, she didn't wax up, but her appetite sure did increase!  The little bundle appeared about midnight and somehow crawled out of his mother's corral and made his way down to their stallion (NOT the sire!)...The owner heard the dogs barking during the night and made the discovery!  He's a cute little thing, with LONG legs!  Here he is...SURPRISE!  A boy!

What an independent little cutie! Is it a boy or girl? Momma looks just plain tired. Love your second picture.
