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 .

Kicking off the traces

Quinn(FV Quicken the Wind) giving a little demo on how I feel about things! 
Martin and I are heading out for a little vacation, to the land of sun sea, and sombreros! 
we are blessed to be able to do this once a year , as we have wonderful family and friends who will step up and watch things here for us . Honorary niece  Angela(DVM 2012 soon to be Dr Angela Oakley DVM ) will be staying here, and my BIL Marc will also be taking care of things with her.
Without folks like this , we really could not get a way . Having livestock is a huge commitment and one I don't complain about or regret , but it also means you can't just pack up and take off at will. 
  Thanks  in advance Angela , and Marc , I soo  appreciate this ! 
This trip we are also joined by the beautiful Miss Deanna (my niece ) I am looking forward to this as she has never been and is super excited . I wish I could take all my nieces and nephews with me  one day, now that would be a party! 
Anyhow , stay safe and warm  my friends , see you in a week!
