Project Athena - Day 116 (Animals)

I Heart Llamas

The Llama is a woolly sort of fleecy hairy goat, with an indolent expression and an undulating throat; like an unsuccessful literary man.
— Hilaire Belloc

Why are baby animals always so cute? I especially love crias (baby llamas and alpacas).

In my parallel life, I live on a small farm just West of Loveland raising alpacas or llamas for their wool. It's a modest income but being with the animals is reward enough and besides, my photo business provides more than enough financial resources. I also have chickens for their fresh eggs, horses just for fun, a small grape orchard for making wine, a grow house for year round organic vegetables and all things medicinal, plus three Siberian Husky dogs named Luna, Dakota, and Buck who love to pull me around on a sled in the winter snow.
