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.

Didn't manage to sleep until 7am at least today.
My spine is sending me hate mail via my central nervous system.
The letter reads: "F*** YOU! F*** YOU IN THE EAR, B***!!!!"
Goddammitt can't we just ignore the fact that I'm kind of a cripple for a while? Please? No?
I still want to go see Solomon, but I don't know if I really can. No more carrying his senior feed myself though.
