Luckily, my weaving teacher was a llama breeder and boarder. Yes, you can board llamas, Virginia! So, Izaak was boarded while we searched for our small acreage.
|Izaak and his friend, Pierre.|
|Insert head, begin consuming chicken food.|
|Llamas are part of the camelid family. They have split upper lips and toes.|
Most people know that llamas can spit. Izaak has never spit, but, once upon a time, we were owned by a llama that did! Belle would spit at Izaak, the goats, and us. I quickly learned to duck around her. Llamas also have the potential to kick. Once my husband made the mistake of touching Belle on her back. He said she softly kicked him with lightning speed. I told him that was her way of saying: "That's your only warning. Ever!"
|Belle the Beautiful|
|Most of a llama's time is spent off-duty eating grass.|
|Shot time? Just try to catch me!|
|Tomas + Izaak = BFF|
|Llama yarn with guard hair. This is Belle's fiber AFTER having it professionally processed.|
|Izaak becomes a sweater!|
|Izaak relaxing but always on the look out.|
