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.

Heh so you can't exactly tell from the video, but as soon as I unbucked Solly's halter, he THREW the thing off his head and over the fence then ran away, hah!
Yep, today was the big day- Solomon got to go back to his pasture with his herd. We were walking past it, and he was all kinds of hot. His friends came running up to the fence as if to say "SOLLY omg how are you? PLEASE COME BACK!"
He rolled a couple more times after the camera ran out of memory, and he was alternating between grazing on the tiny fresh new grass and charging around. He was such a happy boy!

Thank you! :D
He's a gelding though. The filly in the next journal post up isn't mine, though I sure wouldn't mind if she was! She is new to the barn, belongs to a fellow boarder. Also she and Solly are getting on well. :)
