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 .

Tails and trails and a not so distant shore

So , after yesterdays pics, my dad asked if I had been down to the lake to take photos. I hadn't yet .So today I thought I better get after it before the wind blew all the leaves away . 

The trail to the lake (it is a small lake ,named Lac Ste Thomas)

Low ground near the lake

Not such a clear shot of the lake today , the weeds are getting tall and the willows as well. I stood on a very shaky picnic table  to get these

 The real trick was to get in here before these guys saw me !
Johnnie!!! Your end is in view!

No walk around Fern Valley is ever complete without the epic duelling doggies!

Watch your back Win

"what ?where"

"AHA ! gotcha!!!!"

"Oh no you don't little buddy!"

Stay safe everyone!

love the pic of the trail leading up to the lake. Just looks so serene and peaceful. Also looks like Winston got in the mud too! Love seeing the animals (dogs & horses) playing and having a great time. Happy critters they are!
