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.

OMG wind!!!!

Sol was good today except for stepping on my foot. Gr.
Anyway, it was windy out, and the horses went nuts!

They were running around like crazy today! All the horses on the property seemed to be riled up, except for Dragon who takes everything in stride.

The black and white paint with the blue eyes came up for some love while I was watching the herd. He really loves getting skritches behind his ears, as it turns out.

Kyrie, the big horse with the clipped body, wants Venus all to himself, and has been trying to herd her around. She bites him but sniffs him in interesting places a lot, heh. I think she's going into heat, actually. I hope Solomon and Kyrie don't fight over her too much. They're both gelded, but try telling them that!

Anyway, it's always good to see Solomon having a good run.
