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 .

flitting hither and yon

Feeling  a  little  like  this  little  guy  these  days! 

Zip, in  grab a  snack , zip on out and  back to  whatever  was on my list !
Mom is doing better, but still not totally out of  the woods, we had a  scary  call on Tuesday  followed by a couple  tense conversations   with interns. I am  not saying I or  we  no  more than the  doctors, but  we  have been caring  for mom and her  health issues for a  lot of  years  as a  family, and she is our priority, we  know  what is  normal for her  and  what is  not. I truly  believe the  doctors are  meaning to help, and  they  do, but well, there is  no  room  for  ego in health  care, I will leave it at  that.

Beyond  that I spend  a few  minutes  every  day  well really  twice or 4 times  a  day  marveling  at my  beautiful  babies and  checking on the  mare that is left  to foal. to the  contest  winners, I am sorry, I will get your  prizes out to you soon! 
But  for now  here  are  some updated pics 

Stay safe  friends!

Glad to hear your mom is doing a bit better.

So glad to hear about your mom.

I love these pics. I can't decide which one is my favorite. The silly face, the one with the foal laying down and the mare standing guard, or the "Wheeeeeeee" pictures.

I apologize for not being able to recall all their names.
