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 .

Where to start ?
*New years eve we were sorting cows, Angela was out to preg check. Last group I cautioned as I saw the bull was at the back , said"ease up, the bulls don't take the pressure and can kic... and he did ,the gate right into me !I took the gate full in the chest! all things considered I am fine from that , bruised belly is better than broken ribs ! Lucky I am well padded ! sore spot on my collar bone and that's it ! Thanks Ang for coming out to do that for us . We sure appreciate the help ! And yet that, is not the reason for the limp! I was packing up Christmas yesterday , and picked up the tote with all my Christmas village in it ! Will not tell you what hubby called my over that , only that it wasn't particularly sweet , and It was also probably exactly what I was being!
I had a wonderful time with family and friends , and received some wonderful treasures as well. A long awaited Painted Pony "Emergence " based on the story of the Phoenix . painted by our very own fellow blogger Jennifer MacNiell -Traylor It is Beautiful !!! And new western dinnerware with brands on it , and and and . Suffice to say I was treated like the princess I have always believed myself to be (LOL insert eye roll here)
And I ate like one too!
Didn't actually gain weight over this season , as we were kept pretty busy on the farm as well but man o man am I tired and sluggish !The last couple of days , has totally kicked my behind!
So on to the resolution poem "taking care of me" well off to a rocky start , but my heart is in the right place .
I have been looking at different menu plans (cannot call them diets ) and also looking to go to the local pool/rec centre where they also offer massage therapy and physio ,. One stop shopping ! thinking if I can do that a couple times a week and get on a smarter eating program again I will hopefully regain some energy , and maybe even tone up this old jelly bean !
Then by spring if I haven't found a trainer ...
Look out Whoa Dammit!
