Llamas visit the Library on Saturday morning!

What a surprise to stop at the library this weekend and meet some beautiful and very unusual creatures!

Llamas were grazing behind the library, waiting to be petted.

Thanks to the nice people from Stone Leaf Llamas for making my day special and for the little packet of fiber!

They are such pretty animals Diane. I have seen a few in pastures as they protect livestock from coyotes around here. I bet all the children who went to the library had a great surprise.

Diane said...

That must have been quite a surprise! Fun! And, boy, I can't wait to wear shorts again.

Great photo of you with the Llamas! What a fun surprise.

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

I always want to give them a huge cuddle but worry about the spitting :-) Aren't they gorgeous!! xx

Oh what fun. I have a friend who used to raise llamas - they are so sweet most of the time. If we went out and about today we would certainly be wet and drippy - but it is very green this time of year here in the Pacific Northwest, so we don't mind the rain - makes it so pretty here.

Such a nice surprise to find Llamas behind the library. There is a farm in England, near where my sister lives that breed them.. and you can go on rides too.
Happy sunday Diane.

Diane, The llamas are pretty and you are brave. I am afraid to pet them, because they may spit...I don't think I could handle that.LOL. But it's nice of the farm to bring them to town for so many to see. Hope you are having lots of fun today. Bless your heart, my friend, you have had kind words for me when I needed them, thank you so much. xoxo,Susie

Jeanne said...

Llamas tend to be a bit mean sometimes glad he didn't spit at you. I do love the rag dolls you found in an earlier post, the are just precious!

They are amazing creatures, aren't they? What a pleasant surprise. We had some good friends who were missionaries in Peru and they were always talking about the llamas.

How fun!! We have a street fair that is in June and then again in October...and there are llama's every year for the kids to pet. Well...for the big kids to pet too. Also have their llama yarn that you can purchase.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

You sure have some fun adventures when you're out and about. I think he likes you Diane:-)

Vee said...

Very cool! And he didn't spit in your eye? There are a few at a local farm with signs warning of such things. Your llama is very friendly.

Carla from The River said...

How did you like the llama's? I met one once, his name was Mr. Bill. He was a guard llama for a heard of sheep. He was big and white. He was also very sweet to me. :-)

helen tilston said...

Hello Diane
What a delightful surprise indeed to find these charming scholars lurking behind the library Did you read them a story? You are so right when you say "one is always surprised when we venture out"

Llamas look so soft and cuddly! You never know what life brings when you go out! BTW, Let me know when you get out Spring Hill way to check out the Botanical Garden.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

That is a nice surprise to see llamas at your library. I'm wondering what you are supposed to do with the bag of fibre?
Thanks for linking to MM Diane.

podso said...

These llamas have very fancy haircuts! They look all spiffed up for their library visit.

Donna said...

How fun! I LOVE Llamas!!! And your photos and collage are wonderful!Ruth

Doreen@househoneys said...

Llamas are so beautiful! I saw some the other day. There's a farm nearby that has them that's about 30 minutes away. I've never gotten up close and personal with them though. How cool is that?!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They are just precious. We have some farms with them near where we stay in Oregon and I've always meant to visit them. Pi love the way libraries offer special opportunities like this ... For kids of all ages ;)))!

And yes, summer came early to our part of Florida too. But I love it!

ann said...

Llamas are fun. We do see them here, frequently. There is a huge sheep feedlot west of us with thousands of sheep in pens. Along with the sheep in each pen live at least one llama. Why? one might ask. They drive away preditors. They are very protective of the sheep. Interesting.

Red Rose Alley said...

aahh, sweet llamas. They have always fascinated me. What a nice surprise to be able to get that close to one, Diane.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a fun and unexpected sight to see outside your library, Diane! Lamas have such cute faces.

Margaret said...

How cool! I bet they were so loveable! Maggie

Sara D.B. said...

What a fun post, Diane! Beautiful, cheerful photos!
I have never seen one, but have read that if correctly reared llamas can be friendly and curious and rarely spit at a human. :)
Thank you for sharing! Have a lovely week!
