Rain, Sunshine, and Llama Alopecia
After a couple days of rain. . .
… this morning we woke up to fog which burned off to reveal a sparkling fall day. The weather is cooler, the sun is shining brightly… it’s my kind of day!
One of the roosters stood on his favorite gate and flapped his wings a bit. . .
Then did a little crowing to greet the day. . .
He was not impressed with my presence.
The sheep were out in the main pasture enjoying the sunshine.
And our little goat went out to join them.
Our llama, Keira, also went out to join the party and graze in the sunshine.
And how about a closer look at my poor llama girl. . .
Yes, my poor sweet llama is losing her hair. I’d totally freak out if I hadn’t seen this before. The sheep in front of her had a rough pregnancy once, and I wasn’t sure she was going to make it. Lots of TLC and meds, and she pulled through… but she lost all her wool. She was a pink-toned sheep with a little white fuzz. Trust me, they look a lot different when they’ve lost their wool as opposed to being sheared.
So here it is, getting cooler and my poor llama is losing her hair. We may have to get her a blanket so she’ll stay warm this winter!
