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 .

Stealing away

Had a busy weekend here , bringing the cows and horses to winter quarters. Cleaning Harleys stall and schmoozing with him
Then today , had  the horses trimmed, wet pretty well except as were were inside the horse were a little antsy and Johnny lost his manners entirely over his  left hind. He is such a sweet horse but every now and then ...
Had a little "come to the faith" meeting with Charlie and all  was resolved . 
Spent time also gathering up clean clothes  for a little getaway Martin and I are taking .
Heading to Vancouver for a couple days where I will be attending the Barbara Streisand concert. Surprised??? 
Well I describe my  musical taste as eclectic. Quite simply if I like it I listen to it . I like George Strait , and George Thorogood  , Tom Jones and Tom Petty , Bon Jovi and Broadway and on it goes  . And this is a  once in a lifetime chance , so I took it ! 
Will have a proper post soon but meanwhile I leave you with the wish  for you all to stay safe and warm.
And while we steal away a picture of me stealing a kiss from Harley

That photo melts my heart!

I'm so pumped about your getaway! sounds so great! Yes, I think that is exactly how it should be---if you like it--you listen to it. I think once in a lifetime is an understatement...and I hope you just enjoy having a little down time.

In your words---stay safe!

Have a wonderful time!
Barbra spells her name differently, and don't get it wrong, she's quite the diva.
Amazing talent!

Hope you get some real R&R, you and Martin sure deserve it!

Johnny and his left hind have some history.
Maybe he was just embarrassed;)
kisses and scritches to all!
