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 .

Sunshine in the winter

I have  been  remiss, I received  this  award  from Kalin at  Cash's  Steppin'  up, and  Paolas Horse  blog ,and  most recently  from Aurora  at  Equine  expressions 
Thank  you  to all of  you ,  and sorry  for  the  delay 

The Sunshine Award is for people who "positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere." The nominee must do the following: thank the person who nominated her, nominate ten bloggers of her own, answer the ten questions given to her, and post them and the Sunshine Award button to her blog.

 Here are the questions:

  1. Mares or Geldings? Geldings. no real  preference,  I have had the  best of  both 
  2. English or Western?Western is  my  go  to ,  though  I have  ridden  english  in  the past 
  3. Do you prefer "younger" or "older" horses? each has  a  lot  to offer,  but those  seasoned older  ones  do  feel  safer  these  days 
  4. Have you trained a horse from ground zero?yes
  5. Do you prefer riding or groundwork? It really just depends.I really  enjoy  both  but if I had to  choose 1 I would  be  in  the saddle 
  6. Do you board your horse or keep it at home? home
  7. Do you do all natural things or just commercial stuff?(in sense of products) a  little  of  both , I  use  what  works 
  8. All tacked up or bareback? Tacked up! too old and out of  shape  for  bareback 
  9. Equestrian model?too many  to name 
  10. What's your one, main goal, while being in the horses world? hmm, might  have to get  back  to you on  that one 
Now for the nominees.
Lawless  sort that I am , if  you  want to  grab it and  go  for it , All  the blogs  I follow  bring  joy and  sunshine to my  life! 
And  as  always  my  friends , stay  safe
