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 .

Walk with me

After a rotten weekend 
I took a walk alone 

first I saw Comet and Quinn
And marveled how they have grown
The I spied Miss Callie, basking in the sun
in her special hiding spot 
I didn't spoil her fun

  down to check the calving pen
 they are growing strong and tall
 I also found this feathered  guy 
strutting and  sounding a call
 then I heard a tapping , high up in a tree 
and I saw this little friend 
but he did not see me
Now that my walk is done 
I feel a little smile 
I guess the best cure for me 
is to walk a little while

Stay safe

Sometimes a walk alone, in peace and quiet is all it takes to hit the "reset" button on life. Glad it worked for you.

Sometimes that's all it takes, even if I don't have cute critters to look at, it helps.

Seems my funk as spread and for that I'm sorry.

Keep walking and writing and it will get better - I promise.
