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.

First of my massive backlog of posts!

Hi folks,

Chaos chaos chaos!

Well, let me try and catch you all up a bit.

First of all: Solomon, at the end of August.

I roundpenned him, and a farrier had brought his dog, who thought it would be great fun to try to herd Solomon while I was walking him around. Solomon was entirely unimpressed, completely ignoring said canine. He watched Great Danes, German Shepherds, and other random dogs duke it out right in front of his stall back at Horse Hell, so he was pretty unphased by a little border collie.

His weight is much better, eh?

Still not impressed.

Hope you enjoyed these!

More to come... I have a backlog of, I don't know, 80 or 90 photographs at least. And so much to tell!
