Im pretty sure you have seen this truck and trailer before. Yep. Its the Critter Farm truck and the infamous traveling trailer. You know....The trailer that brings sweet, tug at your heartstrings kinda critters right to your doorstep.
Even Darby rushes over to see whats gonna happen next.
Danni jumps out to direct the trailer to just the right spot.
You have to know whats in there, right? What have I been dreaming of having for such a very long time now?
Swoon. Yep, youre right. Llamas. (And even 2 more spools for my goat babies!!!) Please welcome Dolly and Toni to my farm. After lots and lots and lots of thinking and talking and more thinking, it was decided that Kai would stay behind at Critter Farm. She has an important job there watching over the goat boys. And she takes it very seriously.
It was a long trip for the llamas and for the driving crew. Danni gives sweet words of encouragement to Toni to let her know that she did such a good job after traveling on such a long trip.
While discussions were had over this and that....
J and the farm dogs, Roxy and Darby, decided to relax and hang out a bit.
But soon enough we were unloaded.
And walking towards the back pasture.
Once up there, we just sorta took it easy for a little bit and let the ladies take it all in. This was a very big change after all. I mean, they are in the desert now. And thats very, very different compared to the wet climate of Oregon.
After we let them off their leads, they explored.
And it didnt take them any time at all to find a very cozy spot to settle in. Theres a nice haze of dust surrounding Toni, as she just had a really good dust bath.
Later on in the day, we decided to put some hay out for them. Silly us. They were not interested at all in that hay when they could have fresh, juicy pasture grass instead. But not to worry...the goat boys were more than happy to jump right in.
That all took place yesterday.
And now, Sunday evening, after a wonderful weekend full of friendship, laughter, good food, and high quality farm time....I have given the llama ladies some good, leafy snacks.
And tucked them in for the night.
And I am one very, very, very happy farm girl. I have llamas on my farm now. AND they were cared for and hand delivered by my very great friend. Can it *get* any better than that?
