Canadian Geese cleanning up the cornfields in Greenfield.

Canadian Geese cleaning up the cornfields in Greenfield.


I have noticed that Elliott is not walking as well and called a friend who knows a lot more about LLamas than I do.  SHe was worried that it may be the meningeal worm which is carried by white tail deer.  But after a closer look she thinks its arthritis.  After all he is almost 20 which is the age when bad things happens to llamas.  

I have had many old animals, each is different in things that happens to them.  Elliott still gets up and eats and moves around.  I will have the vet come and he will make suggestions and I will also check out the internet to see of other things I can do.  He has been the best LLama and I will give him the things he needs to make his life more comfortable.   


Tonight a winter storm is coming , snow sleet and then rain and tomorrow’s temps in the higher 40’s.  I am hoping that rain does not come into the barn.  Then we are in for a spell of cold weather.  I have already gone through a cord of wood.  I will have to get another cord at least.  Next year maybe 4 cords will do me.


I bought this feeder a few years ago for a very low price on e-bay.  I thought that it would work out in the barn but it didn’t.  I looked at it for a while and thought it would look good as a small tea-table next to my chair in the livingroom.


But its taken me all this time to find a round tray for the top  The metal tray was all rusted and came from my Cousin Bertie.  Ricky drilled a couple of holes in the middle and Chris sanded it and now this is a piece of folk art.  I do love it

The chickens have been enjoying these extra days out this winter.


I hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog. Carole

Stay warm – hopefully we won’t have a lot of storm damage before it gets a chance to melt away. Yo-yo weather again!

So much for the 50 degree weather predicted – its been 33 all day, with a bit of melting. So glad we got the shoveling and driveway done before it freezes up. When it does, it is going to be dangerous to get around. Take care of yourself – hope you have lots of sand to spread around.
