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.

Had a good horse visit yesterday

I had a good visit with the horses yesterday, but it was too windy to take ANY of them out of their corrals!  A low pressure system is moving in and it already blew over our fence between us and the neighbors to our east.  It also blew over our trash cans which were empty.  The ones full of trash are still standing, however.

This is the second MAJOR wind event this spring. The first one blew over one of our 25 year old eucalyptus trees and when the tree fell over, it broke our water line to the house.  AND, it took out our front fence.  Now this one has demolished the fence between us and our not-too-friendly neighbors.

Anyway, ALL the horses were shedding and Quad looked like something on a feedlot.  He was pathetic.  I brushed him first and he looked like a new horse!  (photos to be posted later today)... Gigondas was next, then Scout, who had hardly any piles of hair, and then big, woolly Sunni.  They all just stood and sighed as I brushed them.

I can't WAIT to be able to spend more quality time with them, but I do have a grandson on the way...maybe by the end of this week!
