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.

A trip to the Living Desert and FINALLY, some horse time!

My Saturdays seem to be full of either family obligations or errands these days.  I'm finding that I usually go up to visit the horses on a Sunday, although I hadn't gone for... 3 weekends!  I was either too tired, too sick, or too SICK AND TIRED to even THINK about driving up that winding road.  But, up I went yesterday and it was a perfect day for a visit.  Cool, but breezy.  I didn't take any of the horses out, but had a nice, two-hour long visit.  I trimmed a couple of tails (Sunni and Lucille) and everybody got a nice lunch of shredded beet pulp and chia seeds!  Yum, yum!  And, good for the tummy!

On Saturday we joined our daughter and her family at the Living Desert Reserve here in Palm Desert and walked around for two hours.  Grandpa and I were WORN OUT!  That was IT for us for the day!

Looks like you had lovely time with the kids. I know how you feel, I am the same. Always have errands or too tired and then of course just plain sick and tired.
