Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Llamas and alpacas are indeed used as guard animals. Many folks I know who raise specialty sheep have llamas to protect them. One of our Directors, Rachel Morgan, used to work with llamas, et al. I'll ask her to contact you. She has a masters in animal behavior and loved working with the llamas. She might be able to give you some pointers/suggestions. They sure do love that hose, don't they. But then, I would too if I were wearing a fur coat in AZ heat!!


Get in that water, girl! What about sprinklers for the alpacas? You could turn them on and wouldn't have to stand out in the heat - or you could enjoy the water with them - and the Pint!
