Merry Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas to all my friends out there. Seems like the holidays came faster this year, and I barely got all my Christmas shopping done in time. Got Cap a new squeaky and Glynn a new spiffy collar (she likes accessories). Can't tell you what My Boy and My Girl got yet. Don't want to spoil their surprise.

Mom and Dad got their Christmas presents early this year, and let me tell you, there's no way they could be wrapped and put under the tree. Dad got a new bull, a gorgeous black Angus that should make the heifers happy. Yeah, I know, not your usual Christmas stocking stuffer but you have to remember, we're country folks. Mom's present was a pair of llamas. You heard me, llamas. We got them for coyote and sasquatch control on the farm. Stomper, the big one in the photo, is standing next to a seven-foot corral fence. You can see he is much bigger than the average camelid. When we unloaded them, the herd looked up in surprise and stampeded over the hill. Stomper and Rockette were neutral about the whole thing, they're used to cows. So far, no spitting, so we believe they're happy with the new digs.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Wow! Great gifts! And we didn't know that llamas were good for coyote control! Is that true?

We've got some llama "wool" from BabyRD and Hottie's cousin in Colorado. Moma's gonna use if for some needle felting. Cool stuff, those llamas!

We hope your holiday season is filled with continued love and joy! It sounds like you are off to a great start.
Will you do us a favor? Put big red bows on the new family members and someday show us how proud and special they are? We think it is soooo cool that they've joined you!

Merry Christmas.
