Views Of Fernie : Miniature Horses At The Old Barn

miniature horses in fernie bc - old montane barn

We needed a fun morning adventure on Monday morning so I took the kids and their bikes to the bridge along Coal Creek Road and introduced them to the miniature horses Sher, Daphne and Cowboy. Phoenix, being almost 4, loved them and wanted to stay all day. It was a struggle getting them away from the barn so we could go home…and then the cats came out.

The owners of the horses don’t want anyone coming by with treats but visiting the horses and giving them a good bum scratch was definitely encouraged. We will be back!

A Mini Hike Around Lake Trail At Island Lake Lodge

Island Lake Lodge - Lake Trail with children - beautiful stops

I couldn’t put my phone down at Island Lake Lodge on Sunday. It is just too beautiful and every time we turned a corner there was a new amazing site to see. We thought Lake Trail would be the perfect place to introduce hiking to our 3 and 2 year old and we were right…it was just enough hike for them. At the end, Rod biked down the new and hyped Lazy Lizard and we collected him at the bottom. In a couple years, maybe even next summer, we’ll take them on the Old Growth Trail and finish up with lunch on the Island Lake outdoor patio.
