 Much has happened here in the last few weeks!  Fall has arrived, with it's bold colors, cooler temperatures, and delicate fall aromas on lovely light breezes and even our first frost a couple weeks ago. Fall has brought breeding season for most of the flock. Finns, as a breed are able to breed in any season of the year but we made a choice to only do one breeding once this year, so the rams are in with the ewes. But this fall has brought something new in with the ewes as well. 2 guard llamas, Buster and Dot, who we are adopting through Southeast Llama Rescue.(southeastllamarescue.org ) This has been a wonderful experience!! From the beginning our contacts at Southeast Llama Rescue have been awesome, they found us nearby mentors and national mentors for all my questions. The depth of knowledge and deep he love for American camelids these folks have is truly awesome.
