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 .

No foals, but we do has babies!

 Shotgun(Winston ) heading out to check  calves in my trusty  Gator, lucky I have it as our  first calf  was a bit early and had some troubles with his legs. Needed  a ride  a couple times. And yes, I can  still throw a calf into the gator. and NO I should not ,my back  did not thank  me ! 
just 3  so far, the little preemie  bull calf and 2  spry little heifers. Tiny  critters, but they  are  bright and  active, just hit the ground  growing! 

Thanks for all the kind  worlds and support  regarding the family  farm.It helps .
Things  with  that are  wrapping up. The the march  for spring  continues  with  calving and  hopefully  more horse  time as  the ground  dries up, and soon  I will be  getting ready  to pack  a bunch of other stuff, to head out to the Mane  Event  for another  year ! 
No  rest in  sight  but  spring is here and life is good.
Stay  safe my friends

Thankfully you have the gator. No more hefting calves on your shoulders to move them hither and yon... lol Looking forward to seeing more calves. They are always so dang cute!
