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.

I miss my boy

Back is starting to get better, and I was considering going up today, but I think I'll be visiting the ranch tomorrow instead. Have to go up then though, as board is due!
I miss Solomon, but Bo says to not feel guilty and go throwing my back out, that he's doing just fine. He is fast friends with Poco Joe, since the LBG has graduated to the big pasture. I've seen Sol and Poco Joe swat flies off each other's faces, and I have not seen any squealing or ear pinning. It's good.
I think today I might be able to make it up to Hossmoor. It has been a couple of months and I have been just terrible because I have not visited once. I won't be able to do much, but maybe I can say hello to the horses and the barn owner there.
