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 .

Winston whispers, and some more cute calf pics

Up to 7  calves  now and other than the first one  being a little  wobbly still on his legs (going to brace them  for a few  days ) all seems to be  going well .
Doing a walk through  during  chores  we got a few pics , and the yearly "Calf  Whispering " shots have  begun

 Noo!  I don't  want t o play that  game !! 

Little  heifer  got the zoomies! 

" aint  scared! "
 "just  going  this way  now!"

 2 of  my  favorite  farm  boys (no  idea where  Skeeter was at that  moment )

And a little  animation form the last post 

Stay  safe friends

Glad Spring has arrived at Fern Valley. It must be fun watching these cute babies play!

Zoomies, that's a good word for it. I love it when they throw their tails up over their backs and 'zoom' around.

Yippee looks like you are getting spring finally!
Love Mr. Winston, such a good boy.

Them calve sure can make a person smile, they have such an enjoyment of life! I think I counted 32 out in our cows, just starting to get crazy out there now.

Love it when calves "high tail" it outta there!

Hunka Handsome Winston, and Martin ain't so bad either :)

That's a nice mover, that little girly calf! all HairUm Scarum!

I'll bet Skeeter was right behind you. Many herding dogs don't approve of pictures. It captures them still. And they are so rarely still :)
Whenever I couldn't find Rusty, I'd look down and behind me. There she'd be:)

Thanks for posting, great pictures, even if Johnny isn't in ENOUGH of them :)
Good thing he's in your header pic, or you'd REALLY hear a whine!

Looks like you have been a busy girl with all those babies. One of your fav farmers has a very cool mustache !
