T doesn’t snow here every winter, but when you live almost at the
peak of an eight hundred and twenty-five foot mountain, you
can expect a few days when the ground is white. We enjoy the
cold weather even though it makes feeding the llamas a little
tougher. Every once in a while we get caught off guard and the
water freezes. It is a lot more work then as we have to pack
buckets of warm water to all of the fields. It is nice though,
to stoke up the wood stove, then sit back and watch the snow
building up everywhere, just as it is on our logo above.
The older girls have enough sense
to stay inside when there is a good snowfall.
They can kush in the doorway
and watch the world go by.

Pizarro came to peek through
the fence on the off chance
that I might have a llama cookie
in my pocket.
This was in January of 2002
Misti was one of the first llamas
we purchased. He lived until he was
eighteen years old and didn’t mind
the snow at all.
We got Cholo along with Misti
in 1981. He also doesn’t mind the snow.
Lazo wasn’t wandering
too far off of his path this year. (1991)
Pizarro, like many of the others
prefers to sleep outside, unless
it is really cold and blowing.
Ambassador didn’t let
the snow deter him from
checking the girls through
If you have a pair
of red/blue glasses
you can see the version
on the far right in 3-D.
This young guy is wondering
if he should really go out into
that white stuff. That year was
really cold and both parts of the
dutch door on the north side of
the barn are closed.
The sun came out on New Year’s Day
and a couple of the girls
were out enjoying the weather.
In the photo below, Brandy is showing her daughter Burgundy ’95 and Domingo how to get around in the snow. (1996)
