SMALL UPDATE FROM THE RANCH

Last night was the first night that Bodhi didn’t have PLLL with him – and it rained.

I felt so badly for both of them…

Bodhi spent the night chewing the fence.  Then he started running around in the paddock, making all kinds of noise.

Bodhi chewed the fence last night before I put Norma with him.  You can see the damage right under Norma's ears.

So, I put Gwen up there in PLLL’s pasture.

Not more than a minute later, I heard CLOMP CLOMP CLOMP!!.

Oops.  I had forgotten that PLLL’s stall had a floor in it.  I worried that the floor would break under her weight and thought that maybe she would get a hoof caught.

Hmmmm.  If you think it, then you should do it…

So, I removed Gwen and put Norma back up there.

This is Norma in PLLL's stall.

(Note to self, rip out floor in llama stall that you paid to have installed – try to keep it in one piece in case she comes back – …)

Norma likes Bodhi and Bodhi likes Norma.  They cannot be together, however, because Bodhi chases Norma.  And, as much as Norma loves Bodhi, she loves her ponies more.  After a day or so, she begs to be back with them…

So, temporarily, until I can get the floor removed, Norma will keep Bodhi safe.

I dare any puppy to mess with Norma...!  They know better.  She takes delight in stomping them.  But, she only defends herself.  Not llamas.  Bummer.

PLLL

I did venture over to see PLLL today.

She was still out of sorts and a bit afraid of the donks and horse.  But, she had eaten her hay and grain so she wasn’t that upset.

She heard my car and came right over to the gate.

Crossing fingers…

Tomorrow the vet will be out to do a bit more surgery on her lip.  I think PLLL has used her lip too much (how to stop her?) and she has split her lip again.  Hopefully the vet can restitch it.

I sat with her for a while and just as I was leaving, I decided to snap this photo from her stall window.  She likes that corner of her paddock.  PLLL is eating dried pine needles.  A new fav.

    Meant “Better for all that she is now living at your friends ranch”. Whoops.

    Those were just beautiful cows. They look very content and it was very cute. I do hope your llama enjoys her new home. I’m certain that she enjoys your visits. We have some llamas out near us in Ramona near the Wild Animal Park and they really appear to be such sweet creatures. So sorry that happened to her. But better for all. Thanks for your great blog.

    Oh, good, I’m glad PLLL is settling in a bit and that Norma is keeping your Big Silly Horse company for the time being. Maybe you should look at getting him another donkey, perhaps a Miniature? (They are too freaking cute)

    I LOOOOOOVED the jazzy cow video! What a riot. Who knew they had such good taste in music… I think the low notes of the sousaphone got their attention first as it’s about the same frequency of mooing, LOL.
