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 to no good??

Well not  really  but Harley? 

Me? I  have  been  keeping  busy  still with  the move , and  work  and  the farm ,and...

But  I have  had a couple "head under the pillow " days as well . Or mornings  at least 

 Lots more  packing  done  at the house  , with my "super  helpful  assistant  " Delilah! (my  nephew's  kitty)

And  like  many times  before  we have  discovered  some treasures 

 From  Granddad  Blain's air force  uniform 

This plague  hung in my  grandmas  kitchen , and in my moms and  now is proudly  displayed in mine 
 Also have  brought home  my moms grandfather  clock , this  one  was  the one  I chose  out of the two she  had  because of its  lovely  face

Last  week I had  the opportunity  to attend  the EAPD  training (I took  this  certification  in  November ) to help out as alumni  and  refresh  my  knowledge . A  wonderful  group of  ladies, wonderful horses and the facilitators  Ross and  Dee MacInnes .I came  away  refreshed , rejuvenated and  feeling  wonderful ! 

Also  had  an  opportunity  to do a photo shoot, with  people!!! 
My niece,  Deanna  and her  sweetie Adam  came  out, and we had  great  fun  taking  their pictures.

Hard  not to get   good pics  with  a coupe as  good looking as this.

That  about  wraps up  what I have been up to for the past  week. We have been blessed wit  nice  warm  springlike  weather   for the last  week  as well which  has been  a huge  help. It sounds like w e have  another  little  blast of winter headed our  way but not  the  frigid  temps  we  experienced  at the first of the month. Spring is coming , and  soon I think, and with it, a whole  lot more  to do!! 
But such is life,  you  can't  get  bored if you are busy! 
Stay  safe  my  friends

Oh your people photos are as beautiful as your four legged family photos. Oh I understand how packing those memories up feels. Take care Hug. B

I like the heirloom clock you chose, it's beautiful. Love how you always fit some extra horse time in, even with all you have going on! Farm's are the hands down best places for photo shoots. You captured some fun memories!

Lovely heirlooms, the plaque is precious.
Now that's a true country girl, getting her photo taken with farm equipment and old trucks! That boy better appreciate her!

Wonderful photos of your family; and I bet many backgrounds to choose from on the farm. The clock is beautiful too.

Love the plaque. Looks almost like a trivet, but equally at home on the wall too.

Nice photos. With good people and backgrounds though, it's tough to get a bad one.
