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 .

"It's best to ride the horse in the direction it is going"

Time seems to keep on flying by, I have meant so often to blog,or to do many things. But somehow I seem pretty busy and when I sit down at the end of the day ... well I just sit down.
I did a little writing,but never seem to get back into the swing of blogging. I am not quitting,I am just giving in a little to the flow of life right now.I hope I will eventually get back into writing regularly again,but like the quote in the title,I think its best not to force things.Also with the Equine therapy, I have been doing a lot less of it of late, I have no intention of stopping but this summer has been a bit more about healing me I guess and taking my time with things.
When it is right I will do it .

Meanwhile we got the September cover of Saddle Up magazine again! SO out I went with the camera to see what I could come up with...
First I went to the Rusty Horshoe to see The filly by Cactus from this spring and the yearling colt

This kid reminds me of Dandy! 

then home to grab a few shots

Also was blessed to attend the wedding of a dear friend of mine to wrap up August! we met just a few years ago lol (when we were 13!)  SO glad we were able to reconnect.Her mom was like a second mom to me, and she ,her sisters and I pretty much grew up together. We all have lost touch over the years but reconnected after "Mom Brown passed"
 Couple of kids all grown up! 
"Mom Browns" girls, together again, only missing mom and baby sister Bonnie ,who were with us in our hearts and as our angels.

That's all for now, stay safe friends !
