Last weekend I did something that I had never heard of nor could I have dreamed it up. I walked a llama!
The resourceful and kind Naomi Seldin, Simple Living blogger and Features Editor of the Times Union, posted a blog about her experience and I just knew that I had to try it. She graciously invited me with her on Sunday.
Upon entering Teri's farm, Captain Jack Sparrow (also known as CJ) is ready to greet. He's the stud llama and will be papa of three babies due in the next couple of months. CJ is separated from the rest of the herd for obvious reasons.
And we walk. I wasn't kidding. Each of us had our own llama and we walked it through trails in the woods.
This was my llama Ella. She's going to be Teri's show llama this year, so I felt very honored to walk her. Ella is quite sweet.
Llama booties! This was the view for much of the walk.
We had the opportunity to jump the llamas (you can kind of see that in the background) and Ella was quite the jumper. You can see the enthusiasm and pride in both of our faces after a successful jump!
