Updated Photos of Midnight Phoenix

I went out to take photos of a fire burning about three miles to the south of us and when I was coming back from the turnout pasture I went in to see little Midnight Phoenix. He started posing for me so I got a couple of really good shots of him practicing his show ring stance. He is four days old in this photo. You can see how much different he looks from his newborn and day old photos! Phoenix is going to be our next halter show llama. He has the same style and presence that his grandsire, Midnight Hour, did.

He does have that "I own the world" look that llamas are so good at showing off.

He is quite a handsome fellow isn't he? Stay safe!

His is a very regal bearing. He is above all and he knows it. I do believe you have a champion here.

I am going to have to cover my human's eyes when she comes to your blog for a while - she is starting to go crazy over baby llamas like she does over baby goats! Much to my relief, we REALLY are not set up for llamas, being as we live in the middle of a city!

Pricilla: Yes, he does, and that is exactly what we want in a show animal - we want him to shout "Look at ME" when he enters the show ring!
trusk4u: Thank you!
"Flash": Yes, and what a difference that makes in how they set themselves up!
Emma: Thank you! We're hoping he is eventually a champion.
Melissa: Isn't he though?! Thanks!
Sparkle: Everybody goes crazy over baby llamas. They don't do well in the city, although they DO make great lawn mowers. That's how we mow our yards - we tie the pack males out on their stake out lines and they turn into llama mowers!
