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 .

Regarding Henry. Meeting him face to paw)

We are home form Mexico, and as always it was a wonderful trip, full of laughs and sun.I will tlk more about it in another post but first...
We arrived home late Friday night , the farm was in good hands and the critters were well cared for by our sweet friend Mel.
We were greeted that night by  an overjoyed Winston and Skeeter! I miss then so much while I am away, the homecoming wiggle and whine is always so much fun! 
Saturday extricated Tango form the feeder (a stunt he kindly waited till we were home to perform! so glad he didn't pull that one on Mel) then did laundry unpacking etc. The this morning we headed east! to meet Henry for the first time, face to paw, or puppy breath! 
I think I will let the pictures tell the story ,other than to say it is LOVE!!! He will be coming home  mid April. He is growing well and strong already pretty mobile on 3 legs and using the short leg just to sort of wave as he takes a step(it is too cute to believe! !)

Hoping to get out to see him a couple times between now and when he comes home , middle of April!! cant wait! I will be posting regularly as he grows and  develops, we will see where he fits into our Equine Assisted Personal  Development program here, or maybe look further into some therapeutic activities specifically with him. The sky is the limit when you are his kind of wonderful!
watch for the label "regarding Henry" 

Stay safe friends, the weather is warmed up here so for now I will leave it at that
