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

Hot cocoa Swap Question #3

What is the most 'random' memory you have from your childhood?

Well let see there was the time I was blown off the porch and into the garbage bags, at about the age of 3. Or the time, that mom took me to get my vaccinations and I kicked and screamed so she being the sweet kind mother she is, picked me up to comfort me, and the nurse or Dr, yanked my drawers down and gave me the shot in the butt. OUCH!!! I layed down in the back seat of the car all the way home, just sobbing. (on my belly of course)Or wait, maybe it is the memory of my pet bunny "thumper" being accidently stepped on by my mom, while he was playing in the house, or no wait maybe it was when I was hit by a car while riding my bike, no it has to be miss-spelling the word NeceSSary at the spelling bee....oh I give many to 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.
