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 word from the boys

Hey all! 
Johnnie Handsome  here. checking  in 
All this  talk of  foals and mares, and  branding  away  from home, horse  shows  for Arse and blah  blah blah,Pretty soon it  will be all about the babies, and of  course Phoenix and Cactus  will be bragging . Me and the guys  just  wanted to remind you we are here! 

Just us  3 now that Stryker is  playing  babysitter to the young  Harley. 
We laughed and laughed till it started to rain and we  saw he and that  darn  kid  have a shed!!!! 
Oh well we are not made of  sugar, rain makes for good mud and dirt  baths! 

Wilder looking  elegant  for a picture (really its the only  clean  part of him)
The dogs  come  to "help " move us  to a new  pen , like we  need help!  
We  know  darn well when the gate opens we  go through]
sometimes we  try to go through the next one too

But mostly  we  know the rules , just good  boys who like to visit , happy trails  till we  get to hijack the blog again.
 Oh yeah, mom says Stay safe!

Johnny- nice to hear from you! Well, Stryker and Harley might have a shed, but you have all those beautiful trees to hang out in.
