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 .

Golden, Going ,almost gone

 The Golden boys of 2011
FV Quicken the Wind (Quinn) and FV A Shocking Comet (Comet )
 We have  watched them 
and present 
 Wonderful photo opportunities 
And now
 they are big boys 
I have given them the best start I can .And they are off to their new lives and adventures! 
Quinn, leaving tomorrow to live  near the Alberta Rockies with a reiner ! Lucky  boy ! I love the mountains!Maybe I will be able to  see him from time to time if I head to Jasper . And Comet, headed east to Southern Saskatchewan, to be the best looking  ranch horse that area has seen!!! 
I wish them well, and their new folks also . I know they will enjoy these beautiful sweet good minded boys . Will I miss them? Yes , I always do , but knowing they have gone on to good lives and careers is worth it. Horses need  jobs, and the really cool jobs,well they usually need horses so ...
gonna say it again 
Here at Fern Valley
you have a  job
we've got
for that! 
Stay safe my friends !

Oh wow how sad and awesome all rolled into one thought. They are certainly two stunning boys and I'm sure you will have fun hearing about their adventures in their new homes ....all the best Quinn and Comet. Give them a cuddle and scratch from their NZ admirer

Laura said...

great pics of those two pretty boys! Good news to find them homes, but sad to see them go, I'm sure.

My pasture sure looks empty without a spotted/coloured horse out there! Very few nice apps around here. *sigh* Could you send me a nice quiet older one to decorate my pasture? :-)

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

I love it! An App for that... I'm sure each Appy will make the new owners happy. ;)

Crystal said...

Oh will be sad not seeing them around anymore, but sounds like good homes for them both :)

Linda said...

Good job.........I might see the Comet somewhere down the road ;)

Its always hard to see them leave, but if they are going to good homes and a good career, then its all worth it..................at least thats what I keep telling myself!!

Boys gotta do what boys gotta do.

Your lovely golden boys will be the apple of their owners eye- they are beautiful and just darn nice horses.
That's what we do, isn't it? Put good horses on the ground so someone will always have a good horse to ride.

kden said...

Oh, such beautiful pictures of them, which makes wonderful memories permanent.
