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 .

Where does the time go ?

I cant believe it has been 2 weeks since I even looked at my blog, I am even sure  not sure if I have seen others and if I have missed something important , I am sorry.
So what have I been doing?
Well some of this,
A photo shoot with Mel 
with none other than Miss Whoa Dammit herself!
And below, this lovely fellow ,belongs to a friend of mine . His name is Wick 

 and that.

and the other

Henry is fitting in well, it took Skeeter some time to get used to the idea but overall he has been good.Little Henry is hard not to love , even the cat is accepting of him!

As you see,he comes to the office with me form time to time, and the work we get done when he is there is truly stunning lol 

 More often than not he is tagging along with or near Winston, who has taken to the role of benevolent mentor like he was born to it !

And as I said, Skeeter is getting there. That said Skeet can be forgiven a lot after his behavior yesterday , Phoenix had gotten down and cast in his pen , and Skeeter sounded the alarm barking frantically at the house till I came out . Loyalty? I kind of think so, he and "Fix " spend a lot of time playing and really, whats a dog and pony show without a pony? Whatever his intent I am awfully glad he let me know, and Phoenix is unhurt , was a bit shaken and agitated, but sound as dollar today with no ill effects.
So that about wraps up what I have been up to. Cat and Andee will be coming home in a week, and while I will be glad to have them here I sure enjoyed the convenience and companionship of having them at the Rusty Horseshoe, such great people . I have made a deal I think to do something similar next winter as well.

That's all for now, as always stay safe my friends!

"Oh Henry" A regarding Henry post

Well the day arrived! He is home!
Please welcome Kountry Kosy's Oh Henry! Named a little for the sweetness that he is (candy bar) and a little play on  "O. Henry" A notable American Author (Gift of the Magi being one of his stories sharing the gift of love) seemed fitting to me.
Long story Short he will be known as Henry. On his trip home, he had his first "therapy visit , to see my mom and dad

Showed mom the very therapeutic power of puppy breath! 
And kisses 

 therapy? I don't know but it sure was fun!
Then home to meet the boys

 "ahh grasshopper I have much to teach you " 
Winston seems to think he is just fine, Skeeter and the cat? well we will just give it some time, Skeeter is actually taking it better than I expected.
 One pooped puppy! 
Off to bed now , hopefully to sleep! New puppies are a fun critter to get into routine.
Stay safe friends
