Always On the Wrong Side

5 Jun

I swear I always have kids on the wrong side of a fence.  I had these four little stinkers on one side of the new fence and the rest of the herd was on the other side.  I had to herd them all the way along the fence to get to the gate.  Once they went through the gate, they took off running.

They were happy to be able to get back to the herd.

Almost every evening, I have a handful of kids who end up in the buffer strip along the bean field.  This night Snow White was crying.

As soon as I opened the panel she came running through while Trooper kept eating.

Snow White was hungry too.

I think it’s about time to move the rest of these little escape artists up north with my already weaned kids.  They’re certainly big enough to be weaned.

Then I’ll only have to worry about tracking down the June babies when they make it out to pasture.  Although, Cookie is already having the same problem with her girls.

They just slip through that cattle panel like it’s not even there.

Cookie finds it annoying.

Aurora likes it.  She gets to check them out.

I’ve never seen a llama who likes the little babies the way she does.

I guess that’s a good thing.  It doesn’t look like I’m going to have all my kids corralled for quite a while though.
