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 .

A little different spin on the foaling contests

So this year we have potentially 4  foals  coming to Fern Valley! 3 of my mares and also Peps (Arctic Frosted Pepsi) Deb's  mare . Now Deb also has a blog,but has  not posted in forever so I am not sure if she will host a foaling contest there or not .For now we will  just deal with my 3 and if she wants I will host a contest for Peps as well.

The spin I am  going to  put on it this  years is this, I will post a separate  post for each  mare and then link it on a new page (foaling contest ) Our  first foal is not potentially due till early June so it might be hard to keep track  as the posts  wind up further down the page (though as  much as I have been posting lately ,it might not be a big deal lol) 

But that all said ,here we go 
Mare #1 confirmed in foal  is none other than "That Richie Mare" Get Rich Quick .  

Bred back to Windwalker Cactus 

This is the  third  foal  from this  cross. and the first two? were stunning! 

 FV Quicken the  Wind (Quinn)  2011 Palomino gelding 

in 2009 (backwards order I know , but that's  where the picks were )
FV Just as Quick (Justus) or as his  owner calls him, "the Barbie Horse"

SO this one is  gonna be kind of a "gimme" or maybe not?? 
Rich was bred  July 11-12 .
Your guess for the foal  should include color,sex, time of day , and of course date. Good luck !!
and as always 
Stay safe my friends

Those Palomino foals were two of my favorites. Love the butts. And the faces, of course. I'm no good at guessing these foaling contests, but I'll try...

Palomino colt, 4:00 AM, June 13th.

I'm not a good guesser but I sure love what you produce there at your farm! I am sure they will all be beautiful foals born right when they are good and ready ::)

Palomino colt 4 a.m.(+-) 6-10 What a guessing game!

Shirley said...

I think it's time for a filly, another palomino with some sort of App pattern, born on June 15th at 3 AM
All that really matters is it's a healthy, beautiful foal- which Richie is good at producing!

OK I get the hint. I will try and reinstate the blog. greymareschiroc, and add a post for Peps' foaling. As for Richie, I will say a golden filly with some white markings, born June 1st.
