Hi, I'm Ev. I'm training to become a horsewoman. These are my adventures and misadventures. I'm green as hell, but so far, so good. I'm now learning from Bo (and sometimes his wife DeDe) at D&D Ranch in Pope Valley. I am extremely lucky to have this opportunity, I feel quite blessed, and I feel that they, and horses, have really turned my life around.
Solomon is my baby- a big old flea bitten grey Appendix gelding who is very kind and way too smart! I love him so very much. He is a rescue and was meant to be co-owned rehabbed, and maybe rehomed to a good home. He turned out to be over 25 years old with injuries that ultimately do not make him riding sound, so he is retired.

Tomorrow is a go.

Tomorrow at around 1pm Solomon will get trailered to his new home.
I found out more about his background and there's some interesting news, but I'm not saying anything until after he's been moved. I will know a lot more by then as well. But there might be some hope in finding where he came from, yay! That would be great. I certainly can't be sure, because he is getting up there and has probably changed hands numerous times, but I have more hope finding out about him than I did. Maybe I can even get his earlier name.
So yar. His shots and his dental work will happen tomorrow morning. Ouchy wallet. He'll go to his new home in the afternoon. Double ouchy. But my baby is worth it, and it'll give me a lot of peace of mind, too.
