MY VISIT WITH PLLL!






On Saturday evening, I was granted a much needed break from MamaTess’ care though an invitation from my neighbors to visit with PLLL!

Yay!

“I’ll be right over,” I said, giggling and skipping towards my car.

MY JOURNEY

It takes me about 10 minutes to make the trip to PLLL.  It isn’t because they are 10 minutes away, it is because you cannot get there from here – literally.  There are locked fences.  If there weren’t locked fences, I could have been there before she hung up the phone.

Because of the neighboring locked fences, I have to go aaaaaaall the way around the big ranch, the pond, the burned-out house and the blackberries, on a not-so-smooth road to get to their gate.

But, no worries.   PLLL’s new people are very gracious, always have lovely wine, great conversation and occasionally will host a movie with their giant projector onto their living room wall.  We love that.

Anyway, I drove up the driveway and parked.

Fran and Adam (we call them “Fradam”) greeted me immediately.  Fran and I walked down to see PLLL before the light was gone.

PRINCESS LLAMA LLAMA LLAMA

As we approached her paddock, we chatted loudly and gleefully as friends do that haven’t been in touch for a while.

Suddenly, Fran stopped.

Fran:  Awww, she recognizes your voice!  She perked right up and is headed towards the fence!  She remembers you!

I looked over and there was her sweet, alien looking head, poking up over the fenceline.

Wow.  She did look happy to see me… and that was saying a lot because PLLL is THE MOST reserved llama anyone has ever met.  She doesn’t show her emotions much.  She’d be great at poker.

Here she is, the alien!  She looked right at me and seemed happy - which is amazing for her since she rarely shows her emotions.

Here she is, the alien! She looked right at me and seemed happy – which was amazing for her since she rarely shows her emotions.  However, I didn’t capture that happy moment. And, in a flash, she had that “What are you doing, Human?” look about her.  “Have you brought me a treat or what?…”  Notice how her lip has healed nicely.

GREETINGS

As soon as I reached the fence, PLLL leaned over to smell me.  She looked directly into my eyes, stood rock still sniffing me, and then turned away with what I am sure was llama disgust.

She is a tough nut to crack.

However, I do believe that for that brief moment, she was happy to see me.

As soon as she heard my camera, she turned her head.

As soon as she heard my camera, she turned her head.  She hates the camera.  It is as if she thinks I just use her for her looks…

PHOTOS.

PLLL hates the sound of my camera as it focuses.  If she hears that, she turns her head.  So, most of my photos are profiles.

However, you can see that her haircut is growing out nicely and that her ‘mane’ is a very cute addition – so that she can fit into the equine pasture like a llama wearing a horse costume – sort of.

Anyway, here are the pics!

The tufts on her ears are new. Our little girl is growing up! She also has a new front tooth.

Looking regal.

Ignoring me.

Walking up to the fence to ignore me – closer.

PLLL in all her alien glory. But, I will have you know that the fiber spinner told us that her fiber was extraordinary!

    LOVE the “She is very agile…” pic. I had my head turned sideways trying to figure out her limbs. I’m glad you had a chance to visit her royal highness.

    Hi
    Would like to tell you how much I enjoy these mini blogs of yours. They are always fun to read & lots of times educational, thanks. In regards to your pics of PLLL , the one where she is showing you the back of her head. Those pics are what I like to call the ” intelligent back of the head ” look. I have pics of just about all our pets giving me the ” intelligent back of the head” look. It sounds odd I imagine , but there ya have it. I believe they look super smart even when they aren’t looking at you. :) Hope things begin to look up for your MT soon.
