Llama Babies: Plan B

26 Nov

Since I was obviously wrong about when Odie and Maybeline were due to have crias, I’ve had to come up with a plan B.  Although Maybeline is really getting round.

Maybeline and Odie

I’m a little worried about the cold weather because I looked back to when I removed Llenny from them.  It was January 26th.  That means they could go another month or more before having their babies.

While they do have the insulated buck room, they have really made a mess in there.

Guess what I did?

I set posts in concrete in five gallon buckets.  Then I used them to put a fence across my garage.

All I have to do is open the buck room door, and they can walk right on in.  I cleaned out the whole side where the Ranger is usually parked.  Maybeline has been too shy to come in so far.

Odie had no problem coming right in to check things out.

She even sampled the hay that was in there to make sure it is to her liking.  Now when it gets cold, I can shut them inside!

I have arranged corn stalk bales to be brought so that we don’t give a cria a concussion by falling onto a concrete floor.

I think we’re about as ready as we can be.  Come on girls!

One Month To Go

12 Sep

After ten-and-a-half months of waiting, we’re done to one month from due dates.

I am getting so excited.

Odie

I can hardly wait to meet Llenny crias.

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.

Llenny is thrilled to have the llady llamas here.  He is almost always watching from a little ways away.

Except when he’s trying to put the moves on Odie.

I have to say, it looks like he was successful!  We should have a cria in 11 1/2 months if she settles.

Hopefully, he’ll move on to Maybeline now.
