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

Ever wish.....

that something you want would just show up in the mail. You know what I am talking about, that little something that you REALLY wish you had, but are to cheap to buy for yourself. That is what I am talking about. I know it probably sounds sill but, you know just how it is.

That little item I am refering to is that cow, pig, chicken, sheep (whatever farm animal) kitchen timer. I was sent a link to a couple and they are really cute, and I would like one, I really really need one (ask my rising bread), but I just can't bring myself to spend $10 (ya I know $10 piddly bucks) on one. I guess I should just add it to my "wish list"!!!

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.
