Since my last blog post, we've been super busy getting the farm ready for visitors! Jason, Ezra, and I went to Cloverdale, IN to the March Llama Madness 2019 llama show over Ezra's spring break and brought back our first registered llama, KoKo.
Then my BFF Peggy flew in from her house in Kansas City, MO, and we rode together up to Manitou Beach, MI, to bring home 2 more llamas we purchased from Tami & Lloyd Lash (Lash's Unique Animals). We drove up there on a Wednesday, spent the night in a nearby hotel, went to Tami and Lloyd's on Thursday morning to meet them and pick up Lexi and Justify, left their farm at 12:30 PM, and drove all the way back to Villa Rica that day, arriving home around 1 am on Thursday night/Friday morning. Then we prepared a stall for Lexi and Justify with the freshest of hay and fresh, clean water, and successfully walked them from the horse trailer into the stall where they spent the rest of the night. Then on Friday and Saturday, we spent time together walking the llamas and tending to the goats (trimming hooves, giving CD&T vaccines, and checking body scores and Famacha scores). It was such a great week!
Here are a few of the pics from the past few months around the farm. Hopefully I can be more disciplined with my blog posts in the future, and hopefully we'll be posting about opening our farm up for llama experiences/treks and tours very soon! :)
