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 .

Business as usual,or not
First of all , to all my blog friends, I am sorry, I have been pretty absent lately . The cold I had took the wind out of my sails and I spent a lot more time snoozing than online. Oh well I did have a wonderful vacation. as the pic in the last posts show. Now that we are home and the march for spring is beginning,it is al I said , business as usual. Chores, work, chores,check cows,make supper sleep repeat. Not much new except...
What???? a calf?
Apparently management(oops that may be me or well lets say it was Martin, yeah that's it .LOL) We dropped the ball somewhere in the spring last year and our "steer"had one last Hurrah before we got him fixed up properly. Sometimes those really late calves get missed somehow. Anyhow,I had a moments panic trying to figure out how we could be calving fully 6 weeks early , then remembered this group was in a different pen so . Sigh of relief. All's well that ends well I guess.
Other than that we are truly just doing the same old same old . My helpers Winston, Skeeter, and my unique brand of cow horse Johnny are with me each day , help to move the cows or just count them out the gate
Warmer days lately ,but we got some snow today so winter isn't through with us yet, but soon... right???
Stay safe and warm
