Llama trauma

I'm not entirely sure why Cookie, our white llama has such a time getting hay stuck in his halter.  He's the only one of our 4 camelids that seems to have this problem, must be the way he ruts around in the hay bunk.
But you can see he's definitely not ok with me grabbing the long piece that is sticking straight up and making him look pretty goofy, although I'm not sure he needs much help in that department.  Sorry Cookie.
"It took me hours to get that piece of hay like this"
I'm beginning to wonder if Attika (fawn alpacs on the left) even has ears.

I can't usually walk in the pen with the girls, but it's cold enough they wait to see if I've given them a good enough reason to venture from their shed before they make the trek all the way over to me.
A rare closeup of one of my buff rocks, they are a snooty bunch.


  1. Our llamas always have hay sticking out of somewhere on their body. My favorite is when they are looking all serious and they have a big old hunk of hay hanging out of the mouth. They are always bringing comic relief to the barnyard!

  2. Thanks for the smile, Kelly!

    Thanks for your kind words about Miniel.....


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
