Meet Wild Rose Farm Lisa!
There's always something new when you live on a farm. Today we picked up Lisa the Llama! Lisa was part of a group of 4 llamas who needed to find a new farm. We were approached about giving a home to a llama & after going to visit the group, we made arrangements to take one. We called a friend who already has a nice group of llamas and other fiber animals. The other 3 went to her farm.
So begins the process of introducing Lisa to the sheep and to us. The 4 were not halter broken and will need to be able to be handled so that they can get a much overdue shearing in the spring. Lisa has never been an "only llama" and she will be looking for her former herdmates for a while. We'll see what time & patience will do. For now she's in the ram pen by herself next to the lambs in the barn.
