I'm big on "trading" and barter. I recently traded a beautiful, black, male suri alpaca for a female llama and gelded suri alpaca.
Good trade. Just So Perfect (what sort of name is that?) is the new llama. You can see her in the photo by our gate (with the letter 'W'). She's a tall, stretchy girl with, I hope, nice fleece. It's hard to tell with her fiber all shorn -- but I can hope.
Yesterday Amy, Ashley and Andrew were at the farm -- and helpers, Jayden and Rebecca. We were surprised with a visit from Harry and Millie, John and Mary -- from Gillespie, IL. They belong to a senior citizen group that is scheduling a farm visit in September or October.
We took them out on the golf car -- and they got to meet some of the llamas and alpacas -- and also saw our newest arrival, Baxter.
The kids and I had a delicious lunch of turkey, mac n cheese, applesauce, garden tomatoes, strawberries and chocolate chip cookies. It was yummy.
Such a great way to spend a summer day.
