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 .

Are we up for a little contest?

So here you have a few pictures of the ladies

 Jewel(Martins Jewel, not mine) 

No pic from today of "That Ritchie mare"  by herself , but that will be your free hint . She is open this year .

The whole bunch

The contest is simple (or not ) who among these ladies is a "Lady in Waiting " for a 2012  foal ?
and who are they bred too? 
Go ahead and take a shot at guessing . If you get it right , there will be a bonus gift , but all guesses will be entered for the draw 
Stay safe and warm !

Entering but not guessing, I have NO idea about horsies and breeding and whatnot. I mean, I know how to breed, I've done that twice. And practiced many times, too.

I'm always up for a contest!
I'd say Jewel, bred to Phoenix.
Peps, bred to Cactus.
Ici, bred to Cactus.

Thanks for that kiddo , and btw CONGRATULATIONS Dr Oakley!!!! You are amazing!

Reddunappy said...

They are getting those cute baby bellies!!!

I have no idea! LOL

I was thinking the "bowler" boy (he he he) was the only Daddy??? But I could be wrong????

Jeni said...

Peps and Jewel definitely have baby bellies... I think Jazz does as well.

My guess is that you stood Pheonix with all of them.

Fun contest!

Crystal said...

oh boy how fun! I will guess Jewel and Peps bred to Pheonix and Jazz and Ici to Cactus. I cant remember if you said earlier who you bred to who but I am just gonna guess.

Janice said...

I have to say I really don't know...sorry I don't retain info like I should.
Peps and Jazz - Phoenix
Ici- Cactus and is Martin's Jewel old enough to breed? or am I thinking of sombody else's horse.

I will abstain as well as dvm2012 as I have inside information. The "ladies who are in waiting" are sure getting the baby bellies.
great contest.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...
