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 .

a photo shoot, a bomber, or two and an update

I needed some new photos for a special project so I went out this weekend to see what I could get. I Got some good ones but as usual there are "out takes lol 

I also recieved a little update on Maks !

"Thought you might appreciate this pic from Stampede. Maks spent the day as the Appaloosa in Horse Haven. We had some trouble loading him (my fault not his - not enough practice beforehand) and he balked at walking in the barn due to the bright sunshine/dark shade and then balked again at walking in the booth but he overcame it all and he was as awesome as I figured he would be! He never turned his back on the crowds and even when he was trying to snooze, he kept his nose resting on the rails and didn't object when people petted him even when trying to sleep. "
What a good boy! 
for those who don't remember him ,

and here is the pic she sent.

Sounds like he did us proud! 
Thats it for now, stay safe my friends
