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.

A beautifully uneventful day.

Today nothing especially interesting happened. Nice and relaxing. No new injuries, no spooks. Solomon was a good boy, picking up all 4 feet for me, leading, being calm about everything including being turned out, letting me mess with his leg wound and re-wrap it... He was just a really good boy. So, photos!

OMG trot! I tried jogging alongside the turnout pen and he followed along. :D Usually he trots with his head way up high. He needs to be more collected but it's nice to see him at least not hollowing out his back so much.
