Just When You Count on the Drought

8 Oct

Just when I am used to every day being dry, and I count on it being nice and dry for the next week or so while Odie and Maybeline have their crias, we get rain.

Lots of rain.  Princess looks pretty proud about blocking the door and keeping the llamas out, but I think it has more to do with Farina standing right behind her.  Don’t worry.  They did finally make their way inside.

It looks like a little over three inches according to my redneck rain gauge.

I had planned on the two llamas having their crias in the front paddock where we just finished the dirt work.  My nephew delivered a round bale and put the fence back up.

It’s all mud.

The hay looks pretty sad too because I didn’t get a tarp over it because I worked late all last week with parent teacher conferences.

I’m pretty sure, I can’t ask the girls to give birth in a mud pit.  I think out on pasture is the perfect place for them to have their crias.

I just have to make sure to bring them up before the night.
