Munching

29 Jun

This time of year is hard to find the critters doing anything but hanging out in pasture munching on grass.

Odie, Maybeline, and Aurora

Flora has managed to get stuck a time or two trying to eat through the fence.

The whole herd

Except Myson.  He’s usually standing in a tree or on a rock.

We’ve had great weather for the grass to grow into this amazing jungle.

National Llama Appreciation Day

21 Jun

Apparently, today is National Llama Appreciation Day, at least according to the Greater Appalachian Llama and Alpaca Association.  There is a National Llama Day on December 9th also, which seems to have been around a lot longer.  But today, it’s all about appreciating my llovely lladies.

Aurora

I really do appreciate them, even though they refuse to give me a cria.

Maybeline

I would appreciate them more if they weren’t black widows, but today is about appreciating them.

Odie

I’ve had several people tell me they’ve seen the girls chasing coyotes off the farm.  That’s why I brought them here–protecting the herd.

I also enjoy using their fiber.

They are truly strange and amazing creatures!

Just Some Critters

19 Jun

Here are some of the critters from the last week or so.  Aurora is looking much better now that her fleece is growing out.

I can’t believe my baby Myson turned eight in March.  How is the whole herd getting so old?

My older lady goose is sitting on the nest.  I was a bit worried when she decided to sit with that open wire behind her.  A raccoon could easily grab her.

So I closed the door, and when it scared her, she stepped off the nest.  Luckily there is only about eight or ten eggs in the nest.

Aurora again.  She has been really sweet lately and giving lots of kisses.

My peacock is looking pretty handsome.  I obviously need to clean out their area though.

Seven is such an adorable baby.  He makes me laugh.  He is ornery and funny and hard to catch, but as soon as you pick him up, he’s a snuggler.

Archie is growing and doing well.  He really is striking with the black and white and silvery tan!

Somehow, Popcorn got left in the barnyard again so I walked him down to the herd in the Back Forty.  He’s a good kid, sticking close to his maa.

Popcorn

Stitch and Purl are growing.  I go out several times a day to pet and cuddle Purl.

Stitch and Purl

It’s working!  She’s a sweetie.

Sky still sits on the couch and in the chair like this. He’s finally getting to a point where I can go outside and he doesn’t think he has to come too.  He’s enjoying lounging in the air conditioning.  Wimp.

What a goof.
