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.

Catching up a bit.

I am so very very sorry for not having posted in a good long while!

Things are just a bit rocky right now, but it will pass.

Let me share some photos with you from the 7th of January.

Solomon coming to say hi to momma.

My dirty boy, grazing. But hey, his tail is mostly poo-free! I spent a good hour scrubbing that tail.

Remmy is jealous and plotting his next move.

Eee silvery flexible nose and lips, snorfling up grass!

And here are some photos from the same training session as the three videos I previously posted, of Lilah getting some training and sticking her tongue out a lot.

Lilly Filly is learning patience.

Robins are singing all over the ranch.

Cali is going through the really awkward times... think back to how you looked in Jr. High. Yeah. That's Cali right now.

Lilly Filly is getting her first ever lesson on the lunge line, with a bareback pad on her to boot! She gets a little excited, but figures out what is being asked of her in the end.

"ohhhh wait I GET IT!"
