In Memory of:

ANDRE my first llama. Andre passed away suddenly during the summer of 2003. He was the most friendly and cuddly llama I have met. He loved going for walks!! I think about Andre frequently and miss him very much.




Beautiful Andre

Busy Morning...

It was before 8:30 a.m. that I had the kids off to school, hubby off to work, dishes done, meatballs for pot luck tonight cooking, bread rising, dogs fed, watered and put to bed, woodstove attended to, cats fed. It has been a busy morning, hopefully I can be this productive for the rest of the day....but lets not hold our breath ok?

Everytime I make bread it reminds me that I need to get kitchen timer.... do you think they make sheep, llama, chicken, goat, pig motif ones?

If you're that productive for the rest of the day, you're going to sleep like a baby!

We had a cow timer so I'm sure they, at least, make a chicken or pig. LOL.

In the beginning.....

there were two lambs, Moe and Baaxter. A friend heard I had a couple of lambs and needing to sell his sheep, said I needed more. Needless to say I ended up buying his Shetlands to add to my "fiber frenzy". Naturally this led to lambs in the spring!! Listening to the coyotes yelp one night, I thought I had better get a llama to protect those precious little lambs, and their families. I knew I was addicted!!

I fell in love with the llams's they are so regal! I kept "collecting" them, and before I knew it, I had a stud and was breeding. I quickly found that Shetland Sheep were not for me and I purchased more Border Leicesters, eventually I had a flock of about 30 sheep and 10 llama's. In 2004 I sold all but Moe, Baaxter, and two llama's (Estile and Socks), and moved. This was hard to do, but it had to be done.

I still have Moe, Baaxter, Estile and Socks, as well as Estile's two other children, Bahama Llama (Bomber) and Porter. Socks is expecting, the end of June, she is bred to a suri alpaca. Porter is half suri alpaca, also.
