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.

Hurt my leg.

I ate a pile 'o' spinach last night, and what happened?
I thought it was supposed to help STOP those, but every time I eat it I get a leg cramp. In my calf muscle. Which attaches to my Achilles tendon. Which has chronic tendinosis.
So yeah, walking? Not so much today. Thankfully there are a bunch of volunteers at the barn where I board my horse. They love horses and don't have their own, so they get to spend time with horses who are very old or whose owners aren't around. It's great therapy for everyone involved, and one of the volunteers is rather fond of Solly. She is checking on him, and I think she even blanketed him, heheh.
So Sol is living the good life, and I am playing the Mines of Moria expansion on lord of the rings. Not a bad day, but I do miss my giant white (currently fluffy) lump'o'love.

Man, we both are good at injuring ourselves. You know how pets and owners are supposed to be kind of alike? Well, we have the "dumb injuries" thing down.
