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.

Dream of joy

Last night I dreamed that the ranch was hundreds of acres. It was full of gently rolling hills covered in perfect emerald green grass. Solomon was running with a big herd of horses. He was young again, so young that he hadn't finished greying out yet, and all of his injuries were gone. He and the herd were on the crest of a hill too steep for me to climb, though I made it far enough up to peek over it. He ran to me and lightly touched my nose with is, then cantered away, tail high, face filled with joy.

I wonder he he dreams like that too.
