Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Campfire Stories

Campfire Stories

Sit and listen to the guys

Tell their tales

And tell their lies

Revisiting the

 Youthful glories

Disguising them in

 Campfire stories

As the nights grow late and old

The bigger stories now are told

The fish, the bear, the 10 point buck

The day they nearly rolled the truck

Faster horses bigger climbs

As they relive, those good old times

Adventures they had in their lives

It’s a wonder any one survived

The ladies sit there all the while

Quiet with a knowing smile

Not saying much agin or for

But when the men begin to snore

And just us girls we are alone

Well, we have stories of our own!

Have a wonderful weekend , and stay safe!
