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.

Solly was a total angel today! No obedience problems at all. :D Good boy.
I put some liniment on his legs today, and the liniment smelled like mint. Peppermints are Solly's favorite thing EVER and he was just SURE that my hands contained some of the coveted sugary treats.

Don't feel too badly for him- he got a few treats for obeying commands so well today. Let's hope this is a trend, and he's putting the stall-rest crazies behind him!
