And a Comet is born...

Yesterday morning, after feeding all of the animals, Ryan and I were concerned because our pregnant llama, Michele, looked MUCH skinnier than she had been previously. Yet, there was no cria in sight...? We went into the llama pasture and looked around, mentally preparing ourselves to find a dead baby. After much fruitless searching, we finally went back to the cluster of llamas eating their breakfast. Lo and behold, there was little Comet, la
ying next to his mom, perfectly camouflaged amongst the shrubbery! He was so tiny, and so perfect!! We immediately named him Comet for the white star on his nose. Welcome to the farm, Comet!

TOTAL Destruction!

We were finally able to tear down our old barn after getting the "run around" at the county office for a new building permit. The barn was torn down last Monday, and it was a beautiful thing to behold! I opened up a bottle of blanc de blanc in celebration. Building for the new 40'x40' barn begins immediately...
