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 .

Messing with the music reboot

Hey all ! If anyone is still reading I am still here ! And I can TYPE!!
Arm is healing well and while physio is brutal it is helping a lot.

Christmas is coming in a hurry! And while I am nearly ready is seems that I have been neglecting my usual routine of "messing with the music"

This is a redo of an old one but a bit of fun as we approach the big day! Some of the names and faces are different as some have gone on to new homes, or across that fabled rainbow bridge.
But the one it was written for , as sick as he was is still with me and I count that as a huge blessing .

so here we go
the 2016 version of  "A letter to Santa from Johnny"

From Johnnie to Santa
Jolly old Saint Nicholas, Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say:
Christmas Eve is coming soon;
Now, you dear old man
Whisper what you'll bring to me;
Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve,
When I'm fast asleep
through the pastures cold and white,
With your pack you'll creep
All the horses you will find
Standing in a pen
I will be the shortest one,
Somewhere near the end

Maggie, wants a carrot please 
Reina, wants some oats 
Cactus and the Phoenix, want
 pretty girls, with some spotted coats

Ritchie wants some minerals
Stryker ,just wants hay
Casey wants to play
Annie and Lacey, are happy as they are
Dammit is showing her best spots
So she can be a star


Now I think ,I leave to you
What to give the rest
And for me, dear Santa Claus;
mums love is the best .

Merry Christmas my friends , and as always, stay safe!

Love the ending! Merry Christmas Sherry1! So glad your surgery was helpful & I hear ya on the PT! But it's worth it in the end. Take good care!!

Glad to hear everyone is on the mend. Sucks that it took surgery and all to get going that direction. PT can be brutal at times but when things turn the corner and it starts feeling like it helps rather than hurts, then it finally becomes almost enjoyable. Almost. Sometimes it hurts so good too, in a weird and wonderful sort of way.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas
