Lovely Llamas!



While driving around near Pagosa Springs, Colorado, I passed a field of llamas and stopped to say hello to them. The one above, who was very friendly, was my favorite. Click on the photos to see the image full size- it makes me happy just looking into that face! Looking at this llama in person, I almost felt as if I'd been transported to some wonderful otherworldly place. I was utterly enchanted.

I believe this llama, and the others, are from Sharp Llamas. I was too entranced by the llamas to look for a name, but from searching after I got back home again, that seems correct.




I also spotted this sweet little horse in a field near the llamas.

The first thing that came into my mind when I saw that llama was the movie: The Emperor's New Groove. Great picture:)

Llamas always seem to remind me of the movie "The Emperor's New Groove" with David Spade in it. Great picture!!

Beautiful animals. In Western MA people raise some, but I haven't seen any here on the NH seacoast. I keep looking.

We saw those llamas this summer. We were up at Williams Creek in late July-Early August. Nice area up there. Cute llamas!

I saw in your profile on Entrecard that you're in NM! Our family is all from there, we grew up there, and spent all our summer there this year. I love connecting with other people from NM - you know you're from NM when you think there might be a connection to someone you know 'cuz there really aren't that many people in the state!
