Baby Bumps?

29 Jun

I’ve been wondering for quite a while now whether or not Odie and Maybeline are pregnant.  I know Llenny bred Odie, but I don’t know if she settled.  I had no idea with Maybeline.  He became ill so soon after they arrived, that I had no guess.  Looking at them all flopped on their sides, it really makes me wonder.



There are a couple of ways to tell if a llama is bred.  One is just to ignore the situation and come out to find a cria someday.  That’s not my preferred method, but it’s how I’ve been operating the last several months.  I could always do an ultrasound or blood test, but I’m not sure my vets would even do that.  The final way is to bring a guy to the girl. That’s where Ollie comes in.  He’s a young guy, but he is a guy.


Odie put her ears back and wanted nothing to do with him.  That was her response this morning when they went out to pasture as well.  If there had been any way to avoid walking past Ollie to get to the Back Forty, she’d have gone for it.  That means, it’s most likely that Odie is going to have a cria mid-October.

When Ollie first showed up, Maybeline was all making friendly with him.  Maybeline is most likely not pregnant (just chubby).

This morning, however, she had the same reaction as Odie.  I guess I’m back to wait and see with her.

Odie was also a cranky llady when she met the new girls and Buster too.  Maybe that’s just her personality.  I’m going to still go with her being bred though.

Maybeline is a sweetie to everyone.  She was not sure about the girls and Buster, but she was okay to hang out with them by the fence.

Anyhow, I guess I’m back to wait and see.  I’ll keep observing how they react to Ollie every time they go past him.  Here’s a video of today’s reactions:

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
