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.

Om nom nom nom.



I am a little worried that he may be losing weight. Going to call the vet tomorrow and ask about switching his morning feed back to alfalfa. Some horses, apparently, lose weight on stall rest. He has been pacing and weaving a lot. Also he dragged me a little ways when I hand-walked him today, and even pranced a bit. I hope he doesn't get any more unmanageable while he's stuck in his paddock.
