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 .

We've got a $5 charge for whining !

 And my darling Dreamboat  Annie, owes me some  money! LOL 

Brought her in and  moved Jewel out as Jewel was a little rough on the young girls, Annie is somewhat less than amused, she seems to  want to be with the "big  girls" She will settle in soon and when she realises all the perks of being up close (she does love her snuggles and I walk past that pen several times a day ,where the mares may only see me twice) I think she will be fine .

But to the title of the post ,it is a Chris Ledoux song . I woke up a little tired and a lot stiff and sore this morning ,hubby was out hunting so I  puttered around felling a little sorry for myself,then decided to fix him (and me ) a nice big breakfast. Well nothing perks me up like music so I cranked the tunes I had a Chris Ledoux Cd in and this song came on, and hit home. Well by the time  Martin walked in fro breakfast he likely thought I had lost my marbles , crisp bacon and fried potatoes were  staying warm in the stove while Winston Skeeter and I were dancing up a storm in the  kitchen!!!! My back still hurt, but I didn't care! 
had our  feast then went on to the  rest of the day , Mom and dad came out for a visit in the afternoon and it was all in all a good day . 
We decided to clean up leftovers  for supper , so while I was warming  them up I turned the tunes back on,well this time Winston and Skeeter had to watch as Martin and I were dancing  around the kitchen! 
So like  Annie, my rough start turned into a great day ,and so will hers!
Many of you have read this poem before , I  posted it for Valentines this year, but it fits here too so, remember to ...

Dance With your Darlin'
Dance with your darlin'
Out under a star
A romance not found in
A nightclub or bar
Let the moon shine 
Under wide open skies 
The light of the stars reflect 
Love in your eyes
Laugh dance and twirl 
One another around 
Just you two together 
Alone with the sound 
Of nature’s sweet music
And the love you have found 
Once in a while 
Wherever you are 
Dance with your darlin'
Out under a star

Stay warm and safe my friends

Glad you and Martin had a good time away. A little break does make home all the sweeter. Cactus' leg is looking great!

I love that you, Winston & Skeeter were dancing up a storm in the kitchen to Chris LeDoux.

Sounds like a good day, even if started out not as good. My Bailey is like that, always wants to be with all the horses, but sure likes her time to snuggle when she is not with them :)
