No Fridays for sale post from me today , but check out Shirley's post at Ride a Good Horse there are some darn nice horses !
I am just falling behind this week, falling behind posting and reading . Picked up a bug last weekend , and I thought I had kicked it till Monday when it hit me full force again . I wont get into super details other that to say it was a full body experience! Yeesh! I feel like a worn out dishrag today , but I am in fact on the mend .
Will be processing the calves on Sunday , and turning the bulk of the herd out to pasture , or at least all but the last couple. Normally this late in the year I would just let the stragglers calve on pasture, but it has been an odd season,(understatement of the week! ) And I would prefer to see the last couple up and going before we turn them out .This season has severely kicked my bum!All farmers know we have good years and bad, and this wasn't as bad as some folks have had .The wet spring brought scours to many farms and other issues as well. All in all it hasn't been to bad , I just have gotten spoiled with some very good years lately.
But as I quoted my late Uncle a few posts back . If you have livestock ...
So sorry if I have been absent from your blogs, I have read, just not always commenting . and as for here , updates with pics will come . And soon enough we will begin to watch for the foals!
Meanwhile stay safe my friends
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 .
