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.

:( Hail!

I thought "eh maybe he'll be okay, some of the other pasture horses are out too."

I walked all the way back to my car.

I got in and looked out at the gate, only to see this:

"Mooooom please bring me back in!!!"

Yeah, I'm a sucker and a pushover and I brought him back in. It was close to freezing and alternately raining like a waterfall and hailing. I mean, HAIL.

I had to soak in a hot shower that felt like it burned and drink a whole mug of hot tea before I could feel my arms again. Not sure if Sol really appreciates being in, but Venus is also in so he doesn't mind SO much. Usually he is happy to rejoin the herd when I let him go, but not today!
