llama llessons


No school today, so what better way to spend the afternoon than on a Mom and daughter date to a llama farm?  We learned about what to look for and what to avoid in a llama, how to feed and care for them, and here, we were getting a grooming lesson with Rosabella, an animal with fur so smooth and soft that I'm surprised Rose didn't shriek, "It's so fluffy I could DIE!"  We learned that there are "packer" llamas with short hair and "wooly" llamas who are fluff-balls.  We learned that llamas very rarely spit at people and those who do are not the type of llamas we want.  No thank you.  We learned that a female would be best for our purposes and that even though they're a herd animal, they can can also bond to other species--like our goats.


I haltered two different llamas and then Rosie took Flight for a walk


and even loaded her into a van.  I was told that many people transport their llamas via mini-van.  
I kid you not.

It was a very fun day and made me think that maybe we are capable of llearning llama.

We're lleaning that way.
