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 big (((THANK YOU))) to all who read my last post.

You all have brought up some very interesting points and ideas and I wish to thank you for that.

I appreciate all your comments.

I DO have a horse fund now and my family knows that I would PREFER that the horses be euthanized rather than suffer an uncertain fate, should it come to that.
 Quad and Sunni are 11 years old.  I believe Gigondas is about 15, Scout is 10, and Lucille is in her 20's, according to my vet.  She evaluated Lucille and we both think she's 20 something.

However, I believe I still have a few years before I have to make any kind of decision, so until then, I'm going to continue to enjoy them, care for them, and do my best with them.  I know our children don't wish to be burdened with them, and hubby doesn't either.  Frankly, I'd like to find 5 acres and take them all with us and live in Arizona!   :-)  Hey, Nuzz...do you want a new neighbor?

Thank you all again.

Sure, if you've got $800,000 laying around. My next door neighbors aren't coming down on their price, even though their house has been up for sale for 9 months with no interest. They keep hiring different real estate agents who run open houses over the weekends, and hardly anyone shows up. With this being mainly a snowbird community, no one wants to spent that much on a second home.

But there are other options too. One guy has several parceled acre lots up for sale right across from the bridle trails. Someone could buy one or all, plop a mobile home and some corrals down in there and be all set, but I suspect he's charging too much also. There's been quite a lag in the real estate market. Maybe it will get better by the time you retire.
