Llama At Rest

Here’s our Lady Llama, Keira, taking a rest in the shade during the afternoon heat.

Llama Keira kushed down.

She seems fully recovered from her hard delivery and loss of her cria.  And for now, she’s mostly back to her old sweet self.

Our male llama, Samson, however, is still moaning and humming every morning when we let Keira out, and he still doesn’t get to be out with her.

Patience buddy.  You’ll get to be back with your sweetheart in a couple of months.

  1. He can wait. Keira doesn’t look like she’s much interested in men right now anyway. 🙂 Sometimes a girl just has to have so quiet time in the shade.

    Agreed – she needs some time to herself for a while! 😉

  3. So, you’ve decided to try to breed her again in the future? Are you waiting a few months to let her body fully recover or because the season has passed? She looks very peaceful…pretty girl.

    Yes, we’re going to give it one more try. We figure it’s possible because she was a first time mom, it’s possible she could do fine next time. However, if she has trouble again, then that’s it. We’re waiting to give her some time off, and time it to have the cria born in the fall. Supposedly they do better with cooler weather than born in the heat of the summer.

  5. Hi there,
    My heart goes out to you about the lama. I truly love animals. My husband says I have a finity with them. If I am around when they die, I take it to heart for a few days and I too have fibromyalgia so it gets triggered off more. I feel we were just meant to feel more strongly about things than others. Nerves have nothing to do with it. Just LOVE and Empathy. You take care of yourself. As for the Lama, she loooks like she is just digressing and resting. I am sure she feels too. You know?

    She certainly felt it when her cria died; they both did. They were doing some mournful humming for days. It took a while before they settled “back to normal”.
