My apologies for a slow blog week. The weather here has been truly wretched with low temperatures and heavy rain. It was sunny while I was in Vancouver yesterday, but David reports that the Deroche microclimate remained resolutely bleak. Environment Canada is calling for sun over the weekend, which I'm hoping will coincide with the arrival of Raven's new bridle -- that ought to be good food for blog fodder.
When I pulled into the driveway yesterday evening Tonka and Raven were grooming each other under the apple tree. I've never seen them do this before and, by their embarrassed reaction, they prefer it that way. Quite funny to watch Raven saunter casually away with her "nothing to see here, folks" face.
