Alone on a hill.....lives this llama who tends his sheep at a nearby vineyard.
It's not unusual for people in this area to keep llamas as protection animals for goats or sheep. They can be quite fierce against predators and easy keepers as well. I'd love to get closeups of this guy's face but he lives behind a fence and I'm not sure I'd want to be that close anyway. You know, the potential for spitting.
February turned out to be a relatively dry month with temperatures above normal for days on end. It was beautiful and being outside was perfectly delightful. I've stepped up my riding on Beau, now getting in 4 days a week instead of 1 or 2. It's a good thing but may change once again as they are saying El Nino isn't yet finished with us. March looks to be very different than February.
I've also been working on a sales video for Buddy. I use iMovie and as I don't use it often, it always frustrates me when I open it and go to work. It's really not intuitive for my brain but I managed to put some clips together, add music, and call it good enough. The rider is Buddy's trainer.
I'm getting Spring fever to do a little updating in the house. Nothing major, just some paint color changes in the bedrooms. We also want/need a new rug in the living room. Why are area rugs so expensive? I understand if it's a nice wool rug made in another country, thick and made to last a hundred years. But the basic rugs? Makes no sense to me. It's on the list and I haven't begun looking, but it's a good thing to do when the rains come again.
I hope you're seeing signs of Spring where you live. I always look forward to all the photos of flowers that fill the blogs. Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by.
