Recently my friend Frugalmom mentioned she's got some llama love. Soooo, today I got to experience some llama's up close and personal. They were definitely more calm then the alpacas. And they for sure let you know when you are making them uncomfortable. I think I'm going to have to take our boys for a visit soon. They also had a few other animals: Silky chickens, a Guinea pig, a french lop rabbit to name a few.
They had demonstrations on spinning, dying, wet felting and needle felting the llama fibers. Way fun!
This is Sunny, a male llama, he was the friendliest. I think being a little older he was more used to people. He's for sale if you are interested. $500, I think.
They let us watch them shear Sunny. He was pretty cooperative, he seemed a little ticklish in some spots. LOL
This is Astra, she's saying I'm not sure about you, leave me alone!
If you're interested she's also for sale. $350
This is also Astra, she's saying I'm thinking you might be alright!
This is a young alpaca, there were three of them in the pen, this one was the friendliest and you still pretty much couldn't touch her with
