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.

Called the vet today

Today I called up L___ at the vet's office to give her an update on Solomon.
She was so happy to hear about the great advances we've made!
She kept saying "really?" and I would tell her "yeah, he roundpens now!" "No way, I can't imagine Solomon doing that!" It was a great conversation and I was so proud of my boy for all the things he has learned. She told me she was really proud of me and all I'd done with this horse. Yay!
