We got some Llama's!!!!!

 :excited:

Today we went to see four llamas (two may be pregnant) and I loved them so much I placed a deposit there and then. Going to pick them up next Saturday. Here are a few pictures the owner sent me.

EXCITED!

They look beautiful :)  Looking forward to hearing - and seeing - all about them

I was a little worried that they would need special care but after talking to the owner they are much the same as sheep.

Shygirl get some!!  And no, we have acted quickly but the lambs are due in 2 weeks time and I worry about them being turned out without protection!

Regular updates will follow!

They are lovely.
It will be interesting to find out how they get on as guards.

But there's a difference between the llama's dogs and strange dogs. My dogs don't chase our cats but strange cats are fair game. :)
