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 .

You don’t have to move mountains, but you can shape water

I do a lot of work with animals, and with people. I am often known for talking about energy, the use of it, the feeling, and the type of energy we put out and take in. With Horses, it means sometimes we add a little pressure then ease off but we never set back and pull or demand that we hold hard and fast. Sometimes its okay to let go of the rope.
With people it is similar, ask and show, offer knowledge and support, but when we insist , often we meet huge resistance.
One person alone cannot actually move a mountain, but a pebble in a stream can shape water in a way that over time and distance it can absolutely change a mountain.
Every thing we do in life takes effort, sometimes huge effort seems like the best way to achieve. “Go hard or go home” right?
Or not. I am not saying, take a slack approach, but what if we use our energy to direct results rather that to force them? Be the pebble in the stream and start to shape water.
Just my thoughts today.
Stay safe friends

Photo dump, and what I have been playing at

Still struggling to get back to regular routine her, but I am not giving up!
Its been a while since I posted, and a lot has gone one, wettest summer in recent history, but we got our hay up, even had me on the tractor for a while! FV Practically magic is growing strong,and I finally have some decent weather to play with ponies! And of course  dogs, checking calves, the usual .

 Henry has become addicted to "Bears on TV"

 I have also been doing a little something different with my pictures, and my "Aunty Sherrisms"

Also, a little tiny garden this year, netted me a little tiny harvest! 

Hope you are all well, I need to get around and catch up! 
Stay safe friends
