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.

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!

The Heat is On

2 Jun

Well, we went from cool rainy weather to horrible heat.  The girls are glad they got sheared.

Odie

Maybeline is back to her lovey dovey rub against me swing of the bi-polar llama pendulum.

Maybeline

Maybeline and Odie always look so nice after shearing.  Aurora looks horrible.  Her skin is different tones that cast shadows making her look gaunt (she’s not; she does look like it compared to the fat and fatter Odie and Maybeline) and she shows every mark from being shorn.  She will be back to beautiful soon.  Although, she still isn’t going to eat like a llady.

Aurora

Luckily with the heat, we’ve had a good breeze.

The good side of our hot weather is that the girls’ dust bowl has dried out.

That makes them happy.
