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 .

for the cowgirls

got thinking about horses and cowgirls, and one in particular who joined us all in blogging for a time. I miss my friend. But I believe this to be true so we will meet again.

When they have died 
When they are gone
Fear not friends 
The cowgirls live on 
In the crackle of lightning 
And the rumble of thunder
Those left behind
Will listen and wonder
If the cowgirls of past
Are racing their horses
Or climbing the mountains
to meadows of green 
Riding new trails yet to be seen
Forever they are
And stories they’ll share
The cowgirls and horses

Beyond the great somewhere
