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.

Solomon's Story, continued

According to the horse dealer, it was over 5 years ago that she had Solomon. She bought him from a man in the air force named James Wells, who is now deceased. She said she thought he was used for trail riding. Couldn't really remember much more than that. She said he was the only grey horse she really ever got, which is why she remembered at all.
Hm, what now?
