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 .

Up up and away!

Well today has  been one helluva week!
Actually  started yesterday with me rolling out a hose while  walking backwards through  the barn and ,well long  story  short  falling  arse over teakettle into an open toolbox. The  good  news? the toolbox is  fine LOL, actually  other  than a  bruise or 2  so am I .
Today  dad  and  Deb  came  out to help  get the  waterers fixed. and we  were successful with 2 ,but the old  "problem one " whupped us, I burned  my hand on  the pan  heater moments  after  warning  Deb  not to! sigh . I said yesterday , God wouldn't  have  made  me  clumsy if  he  wasn't  gonna  make  me  tough!
But  tough  or  not , I need  a break!
And thanks  to the  kindness of  friends  and  family , who have  agreed to stay here and  care  for the critters, a break I shall  have !!
All  packed  and  ready  for a week in  beautiful  sunny  Mexico! see you soon!
and  as  always  my  friends, stay safe

Have a great time! It's good to get away once in a while... and damn if you don't deserve it, I don't know who does. Wish you were stopping thru again. Maybe next time?

Dangit, I totally forgot to nag you to
BE CAREFUL before your holidays!!

I'm sure you missed that particular tradition I have rattling around in my pea brain.

Be careful!!

That's an order!!

Oh, and enjoy! As CnJ says, you completely deserve a break!
Forget about snow.
It will be waiting for you when you get back ;)
