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 .

Helping hands

Many of you  already know Mikael from Rising Rainbow Arabians Mikaels Mania-Arabians
Those who don't may remember a blog post I did last year when I went to Washington to visit some family ,took a side trip  nearly to the foot of Mt Rainier, and there I met the beautiful horses she raises  and loves . I fell in love over and over with her gentle  kind horses, Suede, was a particular favorite, and Tango, and of course who could forget the Wonderful Legs!!!

 Reflection and ??? very sweet boys who both wanted my attention at onece
 Just a teaser shot of the Wonderful Legs
Young Tango, what a story he has and has yet to tell

I have enjoyed her blog and her stories of how she has progressed in the industry, laughed with er about some things, and cried for her and with her on others. Mikael  fell ill last year shortly after I left her place , and I have to say this is one amazing lady , she has been to the edge and back ! And yet done this with her dreams and integrity intact!
As she moves forward in health and in her business the has an opportunity to receive  a grant to further her efforts . Please take the time to go and vote for her  HERE  simply go to the site , either log in with , Facebook or register then search Rising  Rainbow Arabians .
Best  of luck to you Mikael

Mikael is a wonderful person and very deserving of this grant. I didn't realize that you met her, I wish I knew when you were in the area because I would have driven down to meet you! I have met Mikael a couple times at horse shows and have seen her show Legs. And he is a super cool horse!!
