He who watches over me



Outside my bedroom window I awake to my Guardian Angel - Llama Boy!

He gives such purpose for this farm - protector, guardian of the meek and mild, friend to those who have none and my dear sweet silent friend. During the storm he did not think of his own needs but stayed by the shop door watching over Kasha and me. Like a marble statue he held his post only blinking when I called to him "Are you alright Llama Boy?" I tried to guide him into the barn a dozen times - thru the blinding storm but he would always double back and place himself in front of the shop door. When I finally gave up trying to SAVE HIM I realized he was trying to SAVE ME... His drive to protect me outweighted his need to be in a dry barn.

I am so lucky to have him with me. Tuesday when one of the old hens fell thru a drift of snow he ran and placed his head next to her so she could climb on this head and he lifted her out of the snow. The hen gave a quick peak to his fleece as to say THANKS and ran into the hen house to gather her nerves. Llama Boy slowly walked behind her and peaked into the house to check that she was safe and then sat himself in front of the door as to say "No Coming Out Today". Trust me the other hens did not appreciate the fact that they had to climb on top of him to take their afternoon nap but this Angel wanted to make sure there was not another repeat of the snow mishap.

So today I give thanks for my Guardian Angel - LLAMA BOY

He is a very special guy and I am blessed that he decides to give his all to this farm and those who live on it. Thank you for reading and commenting about him - he deserves other to know him....

Your true love of your animals and your sweet Llama Boy come shining through with your message. He is your guardian angel. I so miss the farm life. I'm a Hoosier gal at heart and currently a Floridian-Burb's transplant. I miss it. Love your blog!

What a sweet guy! I wish my llama was more like him. She's so aloof.

Terri My two llama girls and that way - they want nothing to do with others unless their is a problem and they are there to help. Llamas are above it all most of the time. I think that is what I love about them is they do not need your approval.
