As we get close to our county fair this week I think of questions we are often asked. One is how did you get into llamas? I saw my first llama as a kid hiking outside of Mount Rainier they came around a bend in the trail and I was in love. My parents took me to some llama shows and found a local 4-H club. I borrowed a llama my first year then saved my money and bought my own. I worked off my board by cleaning pastures. I loved my 4-H experience and stayed involved over the years. It was a dream come true when we bought our farm. I love that they are gentle and my kids have been walking them since they could walk and help with the chores. Now we run the llama barn at our county fair which is hard work but very much worth it! Having a farm and having baby llamas and training them is a dream come true. Who would have thought that I would be here just from seeing llamas on a hiking trail?!
