Surprise!

14 Jun

I was really disappointed that Odie and Maybeline didn’t have crias.  Even more so because I wasn’t going to have a Llenny baby.

I was grateful Aurora didn’t settle since she became so ill.  It wasn’t really a surprise that she didn’t because Ollie (the stud) was young.

Now I have figured out what’s going on with the goats, and I think I’m getting a handle on it.

So when the opportunity arose…

Tony Llama

Meet Tony Llama.  He’s our new stud.

Obviously, he will not be anywhere near Aurora until she’s back to full weight, but I think Odie and Maybeline need to spend some time with him.

Jealous Much?

13 Jun

I am still working really hard to get Aurora back to full weight.  I can actually see results!

“It’s hard work gaining weight.” -Aurora

I am giving her llama/alpaca feed twice each day along with being able to eat from pasture whenever she wants.

I will say that three other llamas are ridiculously jealous of her.  They stand at the gate the entire time she’s eating.  Worse, if I put it on a fence where they can’t reach it, but it’s close to them, they spit at Aurora.  Seriously.

I’m not buying the big brown eyes looking like they are starving.

“Please, please, please, feed me too. I’m starving.” -Buster

I keep telling Aurora to keep eating until she looks like Maybeline.

Hopefully, it will be fairly soon the way she’s been eating.

Special Aurora

5 Jun

I am still letting Aurora into the north paddock for a couple of hours to eat hay.

She really chows down on that stuff.  It takes her two days to empty the blue tub (above).

Now I’ve added a bit of llama feed as well. She seemed to like that too.

For some reason Sunday evening, someone decided to be a little pain in the Astra and eat with Aurora.

Luckily, Aurora doesn’t seem to mind sharing.

Silly girls.
