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 .

Happy Mothers day

For all the moms, and grandmas 

A mother
Whether she is near or far
Or in the light of a   star
Your mother is with you always
It the things that you do
The traditions you knew
And the life that you live
 all of your days  
The lessons you learned
And the grey hairs she earned
Those moments she held on to tightly
The way that she smiled
With love for her child
And worried and prayed for you nightly
In the way you keep house
Or run from a mouse
She is there in so much of
Who you are
 She is there in your eyes,
In the way that you try
And all of the things that you do
The tilt of your head,
The words that she said
Will forever keep her so close
The woman who’s love helped to form you
With the sun on your face,
Remember her grace
And let her  love still warm you

Beautiful! And I got my book in the mail this weekend. My step-daughter was with me and she immediately grabbed it out of my hands and started looking at the pictures/reading it. She said you did a great job on the photos :) I haven't yet had a chance to look at it but this afternoon (after 1pm) i'll be free! (my final is today)
