On Saturday, our llama shearer, Judy Glaser from Rockwood Llamas in Kiowa, and her crew, Tyler and Jolene, arrived to give our llamas their annual summer haircut, toe trim and shots. Our volunteers Lindsy, Ashlee and Teri were here to offer help. Here Judy trims Elizabeth's toes with the help of Jolene.
Judy starts trimming the salad bar--an area where a lot of excess food falls and is stored.
Tyler gives Nathan treats and hopes that if he spits them out he will aim for the target!!!!!

Our newest addition, Pride's Square Deal (Dealer for short), comes to us straight from Missouri. He is a beautiful palomino whose pedigree traces directly back to some of the original Fox Trotters, like Zane Grey and Traveler. He will fit right in with Honey and Goldie, the other palominos. Lynda says that both she and Dealer need to lose a few pounds and get into shape this summer!

Thankfully, Molly is feeling so much better. Hopefully, next week she'll be back out to pasture.

Troop 1189 Hard at Work Preparing Garden Beds
Leader Terri Newkirk appointed Assistant Margaux Jones to be in charge of the Girl Scouts' gardening project. Margaux then enlisted the support of Tagawa Gardens and their Garden Ambassador Luan Akin. Tagawa Gardens donated a $150 grant for supplies needed for the project. On Tuesday May 4 the crew came out and Luan taught a class on recognizing seeds that would germinate well, would thrive in our Colorado soil (and manure!), and would provide vegetables the animals will enjoy. They spent the rest of the evening preparing the garden beds. They will be back next week (or as soon as the weather cooperates) to continue working.
It was a blue ribbon day for everyone!!!

I'm sure you've heard about the elephants and monkeys that paint pictures. Those painting go for thousands of dollars...
Name your price! The tile is yours. :)
We're hoping to have the electricity back to the barn by Saturday. Then the chicks will be back to their brooder..... and I can have my potty back.
