Spring has indeed sprung! We’ve had several days of higher than normal tempera- tures and lots of sun. The end of winter was a loooong ending! Rain, wind, cold, mud; the well had big issues with resultant big costs to repair….the usual litany of challenges. HOWEVER, all is well (pardon the pun) now. We have proper electric power to the pump so that we don’t need to run the generator to fill the water containers, saving on gas and time. The llamas are enjoying themselves rolling in [finally] dry dirt and basking in the sun. Download Spring 2013 Newsletter
News & Events
Winter in our part of the country brings weather challenges, ubiquitous frozen poo piles, iced- over water buckets, and middle of the night checks on the oldies to be sure they are warm enough. It also brings beautiful snow scenes, gatherings with friends and family, opportunities to take llamas out in their holiday gear to visit rest homes, school events, even take part in live Nativity Scenes. And, it is the season for giving! we suggest you consider giving someone, or several someones, a llama as a gift… A virtual llama that is! View the Full Newsletter.
This is pretty much our “SUMMER”. However, as I write this it’s 80F outside and totally gorgeous! So we will not complain!
Besides we were invited to be the “llama handlers” at the beautiful Llama Rose Farm and Gardens in Poulsbo, WA., for weddings of folks who wanted llamas involved. What a lovely way to spend some summer afternoons! Download the Newsletter!
