llamas

I have decided that my future may lie with llamas! Ian has some land in France and plans to build a house there. Plans after that were a bit uncertain and I guess still are, although while he was over in France over Easter taking a look I had an epiphany moment about llamas. As the land has an agricultural tie if we live there we need to use it for something. The original plan had been to keep horses, but I have no great interest in them, or to buy a few sheep (likewise and I am not sure why you would keep them if you don't want to shear them or eat them). I don't know how I hit on llamas but I was reading about them and they sounded so ideal. Easier than horses, prettier than sheep, slightly unusual and a number of potential avenues from breeding to trekking, or just to look at! I am in love with them already but admit to never having met one in the flesh so am planning to take Ian on 'walk with llamas' session at a local llama park to make sure we both like them in the flesh. I really hope we like them!

I know of a very good use for llamas - chasing. they would be more fun than sheep. Because i chase sheep, i have got to be put with a ram, who is meant to frighten me out of chasing sheep anymore. i am not supposed to know about this plan, but of course i do. I will let you know how it goes, i don't plan to be frightened one bit. if you move to France, my upright hopes to visit! love, Berry, golden retriever.

Hopefully the llamas can also frighten you off the sheep although some llamas are more scarey than others! We will probably all be very old before we manage to get to France!
