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.

Healing healing healing.

Today Solomon stood nice and still while I changed his wrappings and cleaned his leg. Such a good boy! I took pics of the wound and e-mailed them to the vet just to make sure it was still healing well.
He stuck his nose in the halter today just as eagerly as ever, and was pretty good on the lead line. He was also very affectionate today, in a non-pushy way. Lots of nickering and gentle with-permission snuggling. I felt guilty leaving this afternoon, he was making such a kind lovey face, and craning his neck around out of his stall to watch me go.
Here's the leg.
