Wonderful weekend, part 2

The great weekend continued on Sunday with a visit to Ellen and Jan's nice little ranch near Castle Rock. We were invited to watch the llama shearing, which was great fun. I got there after Apollo had his new hairdo. He was looking pretty spiffy, but not real happy.Then it was Einstein's turn. I wondered how you got a llama to stand still enough to get shorn, now I know. I love learning new stuff.Lonestar was looking quite concerned while he was waiting his turn, but he decided the treats he got while getting his new summer 'do were worth it.I did get a little of his fleece (or do we say hair?) to play with. The dog and cats at my house didn't even register anything unusual when I brought home sheep fleece last weekend, but boy they were all VERY interested in the llama fiber. It washed up very nicely, not much dirt at all. I don't know what I'll do with it, but it's fun to play with...Thanks Ellen and Jan for the great lunch and tour of the place. Tell your mom it was very nice to meet her. Posted by Picasa
