Very nice!! Wish the rain would stop here so I could get out and groom my llamas.

Pricilla said...

How regal!

Theresa said...

Lovely photo. I do have a question though. I've noticed when you shear the llamas it's only in that middle section. Is there a reason for that? Is that the best area? Just curious about that one.

Beautiful! I told DH about your bear experience. Shiver, Shiver!

Is that Llama as big it looks? It looks huge.

Nancy said...

What a handsome devil! Love the cut.

Tollykit: It took weeks for things to dry out enough for us to shear this summer. We never did get them all done.

Pricilla: Yes, Dee is very elegant and regal!

Theresa: This is what is called a "barrel cut". That is the prime fleece and the llamas stay warmer if I leave the rest on for the winter.

Linda: Thank you! The bear hasn't been back (knock on wood).

Melissa: Yes, she's a BIG girl and she just turned three so that should be as big as she gets. Her Sire is huge, too.

Nancy: Thank you!

We will be showing Dee at the LOCC Fall Classic Llama Show over Labor Day weekend. We hope she follows in her Sire's footsteps. He's a multiple Grand Champion with his ALSA Halter Champion title!

She is lovely, but somehow reminds me of a big poodle!

Baby Dee is gorgeous!! She is regal in her stance as if she knows she is something special!!

I really like her!! Wow, she almost would convince me to listen to my husband and let him buy one.

Awesome today...all of them are always lovely but I think baby Dee is going to be my very favorite!!

I love her!! Happy WW baby Dee you gorgeous doll you!!:-)))

Theresa said...

Thanks for the explanation Linda. I knew there had to be a good reason. :)

BeadedTail said...

Baby Dee looks like she knows she's gorgeous!

PJ said...

what a stunning looking animal! i was also wondering the same thing theresa was, thanks for the explanation.

WillOaks Studio said...

What a lovely, svelte figure she cuts! Oh to have such a tiny waist again!

Glad to read the explanation, I thought you got side tracked and didn't finishing shearing! See what little I know. She's beautiful.

Daisy said...

Baby Dee looks so proud of herself! As she should be.

Lin: You're right, they DO look like a poodle, don't they?!

Jackie: Thank you! They are fabulous creatures and make our lives complete.

Theresa: You're welcome!

Meghann: Thank you!

BT: She does, but she's not full of herself, just very much the Grande Dame!

PJ - Thanks!

Karen @ WOS: Ha! You and me both!

FOS: Some people shear them completely naked and I think it looks horrific. They act like they're horrified to look that way, too! They'd freeze here in the winter if I sheared them like that though.

Daisy: Yes, she knows she's hot stuff. Thanks!
