Want a Llama?

Did I ever tell you there are two llamas on the ranch? No one really knows the story of how they got here or I've never heard it. Sometimes we can go weeks/months and not spot them and then they just appear. I think they must be the same sex since we haven't had any cria (word for baby llama). Dudley thinks they look quite odd and won't ride near them! Now this presents a problem when they appear between me and the cows! Another time we were checking water tanks in the truck and one wouldn't get out of the way of the truck and kept trying to stick his/her head in the window. It was really funny - finally I slung water from a water bottle at him and off he went - it was 100 degrees outside so I don't think he minded!
