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 .

Colts are ...


 just kinda cool to have around 
and definitely 
in the

Calender materials too 

These are from Saturday , Harley's first  big day out on grass. Yes is is my front yard, and yes it was a supervised outing , luckily as he was  pretty determined to try the steps . 
It went very well, until momma Jewel caught sight of her reflection in the big picture window. Initially she looked as if to say , "Dang that is one gorgeous horse in the mirror, then it turned to "are you looking at MY BABY!!!" at which point we  exited the area! . 
She will be on a couple hours turnout a day with Harley  for now  since as you see she is not in any way hurting for groceries. This is a good opportunity to work with him and get her back into  condition as well.
Hope everyone had a great weekend 
Stay safe
