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.

On Monday morning I visited Solomon. There's not a lot to report, as not a lot was done. He was groomed and fed, he was roundpenned, which he did pretty well at, getting a long workout. Then I took him around the property to graze for a couple of hours. Since the only other people around were a couple of boarders who do everything in the roundpen, and since we made out way to the back of the property, I sang to my horse for a little while. Would feel silly if there were other people around, but we were alone and it felt kind of nice to sing. Solomon kept an ear swiveled in my direction as he grazed, raising his head to stare at me whenever I stopped singing. I think he enjoys it.

I might not be able to get to the ranch for a little while, as I am currently broke, yet again. :( I am very grateful that I know my boy will be well taken care of even in my absence. I miss everyone there when I can't make it out, however.
