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 .

I LOVE Jen's work! I have one of her Percheron welcome signs - she put a broad blaze on the face so she looks a lot like Rosie =)

Congrats!

Oh I love it and I love those ponies. I have something like 20 and have my stepdaughter 3 or 4 now...

Janice said...

Very nice, I went and had a look see at her site....lots and lots of goodies there. No Morgans though .....well you know what they say it is better to give than get...and I saw lots of things that would make great gifts for other people I know.

How much does anyone want to bet, Sherry does not take this down after the holidays????

No worries, I probably wouldn't either! Love it, awesome sign.
