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.

His name was Dillon.
Before he was Solomon, he belonged to the WIFE of an air force staff sgt. He was boarded in the Travis AFB stables. He was a kind, patient, and forgiving horse.

I am hoping I can get more information from the stablemaster. Now I can start to try to find the history of the wife, and see if she has always been in Vacaville. If this is the case, then he probably came from the area.
