Remembering Llamas

Sean and Justin left this morning before chore time to help a neighbor get her car out of her yard so that a plow truck, commerical snow plow, or a miracle sent from above can remove the ice encrusted snow from her drive way. I am exaggerating a little, but not by much. Those boys have their work cut out for them. At least, we are hoping to climb back into the 40's today. That should help.

I should get out of bed and begin getting some things done around the house. But, it is early and the house is empty and quiet. Molly is snoring softly in my ear, head sharing my pillow, warm body curled in the crook of my arm. I am comfortable. I am also awake.

I don't know if it the excitement of possibly getting our Emus this spring and the worry that we might have a repeat of our bad llama experience, but for some reason, this morning I woke with thoughts of Dilly in my mind. Do you remember Dilly and the week we had a llama living at Lally Broch?

This is what we were looking for. Look how sweet this llama from Fiber Fields Alpaca Farm is! Unfortunately, sweet was not our experience.

Sean was on the radio program Bob & Sheri a while ago telling them all about his near death experience. Take a listen:

If you are interested in hearing more about Dilly, you'll want to read these posts:
Our First Morning with Dilly  and A Dilly of a De-LlamaOur research has been more extensive this time around. Our knowledge of caring for feathered animals has increased, too. We are looking forward to adding emus to our farm this spring and hope that our dream comes to fruition. But, whatever happens, we'll be sure to share the story with you all.

Rain in the forecast today means it will be warm enough to clean out some stalls before the temperatures dip back to 0* on Monday. C'mon, Spring! It's time to awaken!

Stay safe and warm today, friends. Thanks for stopping by.
