A VISIT WITH PLLL!






My neighbors who took in Princess Llama Llama Llama are in Europe for a wonderful vacation back in their homeland.

So, I decided it would be good to visit PLLL since she wouldn’t have her new person around for a while.

DRIVING UP THE DRIVEWAY

As I motored my car up their driveway, I saw her neck pop up like a jack-in-the-box!  Up Periscope!

She remembered the sound of my car!

I was so excited, I hopped out and tried to make my camera work as I stumbled over the uneven ground.

PLLL was looking for me with her telescope neck like a giraffe or a camel – or an odd hand puppet.

I took a pretty miserable video, but it is kinda sweet…

Fortunately for PLLL, she shares a huge paddock with two donkeys and a horse.  Unfortunately for me, they also wanted attention.  And they took center stage, of course, pushing PLLL into the background.

Poor PLLL.  She was too polite (and small) to bite any of them, or, Llamagod forbit, spit.

I had to come up with a plan…

She had such a happy expression….

She followed me to her stall.

FOOD

Food always gets the attention of equines above and beyond new humans.

So, I grabbed some excess hay and made tiny piles to distract the equines.

PLLL was right with me in the thought process.  As soon as she saw the gameplan, she got on board and ran to a clearing next to the fence.

My heart was singing a bit because this llama isn’t really the affectionate type.  So, the fact that she was paying attention to me and wanted me to be with her made me feel very special.

Of course, I had brought her favorite treats.  Rose bush leaves and blackberry leaves… so that helped.

(I totally forgot to take pictures the whole time I was feeding her the special treats…)

Yum!

(BLEeeech from the horses – which was even better…  They had no interest in leaves.)

I fed her hay, blackberry bush leaves and rose petals... all her favs

PLLL was distracted for a moment. I just love her face and expressive eyes and ears.

DON’T TOUCH ME

She didn’t want me to touch her which was par for the course.  But, she did want me to talk to her.

Llamas have huge eyes and they look right into yours as you converse with them.  It is a bit unsettling but also very intimate.

PLLL is very expressive with her eyes and ears.

Whenever a horse would come over, she’d pin her ears and give hateful glances.  She was trying her best hold her ground against the horses.  And, the horses mostly listened because food was still better than strange human.

As I was leaving, she looked so lonely… but then I took a closer look

And she looked really peaceful and satisfied. She has her new friends and no fear of dogs attacking her.

TIME TO GO

After PLLL had eaten all the leaves and after I had scrounged up whatever else I thought she’d like, I walked over to her shed to see if she’d let me scratch her in there when we were alone.

Nope.

But, it was nice that she ran into her shed once I was in there.  Again, I was so happy to be accepted by this llama…  its the little things, right?!…

Anyway, when it was time to go she looked satisfied.

I kinda hated to leave her.  But, she has 20 acres and constant companions – and a new human who adores her.  So, it was all good.

And… Yup.  She has grown in one adult tooth.  And, there it is.  Front and Center.

The beautiful Princess Llama.

    Awwww, she really IS cute! Even with the snaggletooth (I sure didn’t know anything about llama dentition, LOL). Too bad you can’t pet her because she looks so snuggly, but it’s cool that she remembers you.
