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 .

FV SPARKS IMAGE Update

So , most of you will remember Maggie (FV Sparks Image) some of my long time followers  were in on the foaling contest the year she was born 

Together we watched her grow
 And her sweet  temperament shone through 

 Last spring I sold Maggie to a young lady  named Kat.In a fun coincidence , I discovered that her mom and I had attended high school together !
Kat and her mom , have kept in touch  and let me know how Maggie is doing,which is so nice. 
Maggie has a great home and great life, I knew this going in ,but if I had any question the call I got last  winter from Kat's mom to let me know Maggie was injured  but they were taking care of it , and were prepared to go the distance for her ,made me ever so sure . 
Thankfully their fast thinking and good care paid off and Maggie  is just fine 
as the following pictures , sent by Kat will show ...
this collection of photos is over the past 12 months , as you see they are a great little team 









Yup, I think they are doing just fine together. Maggie is, btw full sister to another favorite from the blog.FV Dandy Line , who also is doing very well, hope to hear more on him soon as well.
Meanwhile thanks so much for sharing Kat. and enjoy! you are looking great together .
Stay safe everyone

It's nice when you can match a horse and owner so well. That's the reason we do what we do!

It's a great feeling when you know the horse you loved is still being loved by someone. :-)
