I Want Fall

26 Oct

It’s been a little while since I complained about the weather, so I figure I should do that again.  Seriously.  Look at this.  It’s October.  I want sixty and sunshine.  Friday’s weather is totally unacceptable.

Especially since Odie and Maybeline are going to have crias.  Sometime.  I don’t know when, but if the weather is bad, that seems to increase the likelihood that they will kid?     calve?      cria?  give birth.


I bribed them into the front pen that was too muddy to put them in before.  Unfortunately, with our crazy wetter than usual October (seriously–we’ve had more rain in October than we did all summer long), the hay is moldy.  My nephew is going to try to bring a new bale for them.  Until then, they have some pads in the building.


Unfortunately, they don’t really want to stay in there by themselves.  They’ve really bonded with the other llamas, and they think they should get to rejoin the rest of the group.  Farina is also not happy with losing her new friends.


They can still sleep next to each other.  This is where they have been sleeping at night, just on the other side of the fence.

I also have it arranged for them to get checked during the day tomorrow in the event someone gives birth outside.


The Bulldozer is Gone

4 Sep

I was kind of getting used to having a bulldozer parked at the edge of my field, but it’s gone!

Maybeline, Farina, Odie

Saturday, he came back and hauled a few more loads of dirt and finished his part of keeping my garage from falling off the cliff.

It looks really good.


I just need my allergies to calm down so I can try to get some grass planted there to take root before next spring’s rains.

Pregnancy Test

24 Aug

With moving everyone around, that means the llady llamas got to go up and see Ollie.


Odie and Maybeline were the first two to go up and check him out.  They look all sweet here, but they quickly put their ears back, and Odie even spit at him (repeatedly).  Of course, I already knew they are bred.

Pretty soon, the other girls came up also.  I am not going to say 100%, but I do think they are all three pregnant.

Ollie with Farina, Estarr, and Aurora

All it takes is a glance in his direction, and the ears go back.

The only one who wants anything to do with Ollie now is Buster.

And he’s just bragging that he gets to hang out with the girls all the time.

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.
