This is a different post, barely a post I guess. I have noticed a few bloggers of late had chosen to stop blogging . Sad , I guess, but they have each chosen to stop for their own reasons. And I wanted to say farewell, to ,Deanna, at My Country Genes, and Lisa of Laughing Orca Ranch to name a couple . Others have reduced how often they post , and still others have quietly just faded away. I wish all of them well, and have so enjoyed getting to know you over the years.
I have by times thought about stopping the blog, but for the most part I still really enjoy the journalling . I don't feel a huge obligation to post every day, and while I do try to get a few up per week it just depends on the week.Ultimately I blog for me. I love the feedback and comments , and the friendships I have made, but at the end of the day ,it has to be because I enjoy the journalling and the sharing of my life and thoughts. So far I still do .
So to those who have hung in there with me, thanks so much , and to those who have moved on to other projects, thanks to you as well, and the very best of luck in whatever you do.
As for me , I have some good things coming up, I quite liked the trainer I met and have agreed to send the girls in August . I have communicated with another trainer as well for Phoenix, and it looks quite promising , he could be headed south to go to work with him as soon as April, though we do have to meet face to face at some time first. It certainly looks good.
I will be attending the local tack sale on the weekend with my books, calender, cards and some tack that needs to stop gathering dust in my barn and maybe be pressed into service by some other .
Final touches on editing the new book, and hopefully it will be in print soon.
Then calving , and at the End of April , like I said off to the Mane event !
Then before you know it we will be on the lookout for the Fern Valley Foals of 2012! I can feel the excitement of spring coming , just as soon as the snow stops!
Stay safe and warm my friends! Love ya!
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 .
