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.

Hey all!

Spring has been very kind to Solomon this year.

He is now fat and happy, the herd is all settled in, and he has a gorgeous place to wanted- almost 100 acres. In the late spring of Pope Valley, grass is bright and lush and green.

Solomon is lord of all he surveys, along with his lady, Maggie.

He has somehow become the undisputed alpha of the herd, even chasing around the alpha mare when he decides to.

Thank you, Holly, for donating that fly mask for Solly. He is quite grateful!
