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 .

50 years in the making

April 15,1963
50 yrs ago, on that  day , Ronald John and Patricia-Alice , started their lives together as Mr and Mrs Horricks.
And tomorrow ,a day early, we will all gather at the home he built for her to celebrate a wonderful milestone in their  journey . 50 years married.
the smiles are  just the same .

For Mom and Dad on your
Golden Wedding Anniversary
A million smiles and a million tears
That’s what you share in 50 years.
The hopes and the dreams that you had on that day
Haves soared and come true, is so many ways
The times that were good and the ones that were great
The frightening times with too much on your plate
In sickness and health you both know those fears
And yet you stood strong through prayer and through tears
As you look back on the day that you wed
And all of the love in those vows that you said
The family you built and nurtured with care
Are all here to rejoice and memories to share
It’s not always perfect we know this is true
But it can always be worth it
We learned this from you
50 years married does not mean you’re old
It means you have a love that is made of pure gold

Happy Anniversary,to my mom and dad. I am, as  always so proud to be your  daughter.
With love  from Sherry .

And to my friends. celebrate your loved ones with me on this day , and as always , stay safe
