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 .

No secret

So  today is my birthday, and rather than hide from the fact that I am getting older I am embracing it , after all the alternative sucks
30 ish years ago 

The real secret to never aging , is likely dying young. Seeing as I am not prepared to do that , I am instead going to celebrate my age. My grey hairs , crows feet, the works. Because with age comes experience and knowledge and a certain sense of satifaction in what we have learned and accomplished . And what we have still to do.

3 yrs ago 
Martin and I last fall, 
So today I  proudly celebrate the Silver anniversay of my 20th birthday !
And thank God  for the gifts I have recieved in my life. The family and friends I adore , the lessons  learned , and the goals I have achieved , here's to the next  45 years!
And remember , everyone looks younger when they smile! 
Stay safe
