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 .

Oops, I may need to make a 50 month calender!

Screaming  hot  weekend  ,  which , while its  nice  has  prompted  me  to lay  low  for  a  good  part  of  the  day . I  don't  tolerate  the   heat  like  I  used  to (but  I am  not  complaining )  will  save  this  feeling for  those  snow  bound -30 C  days ahead) But  I did  get  out  for  a  while  to move  the  mares  and  foals  and  grab  a  few  shots . Then  came in and  was  looking  through  this  years  pics  for  the  yearly  Fern  Valley  Calender , and well,  we may have  a  problem. Not  a  shortage  of  pics  by  any stretch of  the  imagination!!! Some  are easy to skip, while  they  are  cute, they  have  too  low  a  pixels  quality or  are  just ordinary ,  but I  have  some  truly extraordinary  shots  this  year  too ,  not  because  I am necessarily  all  that  great  a photographer,  but  seriously  folks  ,  look  at  the  subject  matter! 
Here  are  a  few   from  yesterday  ...

 Baby  whisperer at work
" K Mom, one  at  a  time is  fine  but  2???"
" Alright  kids  here is  what we  are  going to  do "
 Good  boy,  Tango, salt is  good  for  you in  this  heat 
 Still  waiting  for  Casey to tell  me  what color  she  wants to be,  thinking  I have  a  dun  here 
 Tired  sleepy  Tango 
 Ends in  view 
 the  littlest  cowgirl  Sprite ,  is  catching  up   just  fine 
 And  what is  a  photo shoot  without  resident  photo  bomber  Get  Rich  Quick!  
She  could  nearly have  her  own  calender, at  least  I  think  I  have  the  April  fools  page  figured out!
"Give us  a  kiss  now " 

Anyhow,  lots  to figure out , and I still  have  some  time. If  you  have  any  pics  that struck  you  as  they  MUST  be in  the  calender  , let  me  know I will  take all the help I can  get !
Enjoy  the  rest of  your  long  weekend  !
And  as  Always,  stay  safe

I'm loving that gorgeous chocolate baby with the beautiful blanket....super cute. Hope the heat has resulted in some sweet smelling hay as well

Crystal said...

Wow it will sure be a tough one this year to pick out pics, maybe you can do collages so more than one pic on a month?

Why not a two-year calender??
That's a great idea!
Too many great shots, why not extend? I've seen lots of 18month and two year calenders. Makes them useful for longer, anyway!

Been catching up, loving these shots, thank you!!
And hooray for Dandy's new Sherry!
