MAMA LLAMA AND THE GOATS
My name is Mama Llama, and as the name implies, I’m a llama. Although that may be up for debate, because I’ve heard that I’m both a llama and an alpaca. It’s called a mix. Now that’s enough to make any poor animal confused. Personally, I think I’m a big, bad llama. I know for a fact that I’m living with these goats so I can protect them from the coyotes that roam outside our fences at night. They wouldn’t hire a little alpaca to do such an important job! No, you’d have to be big and scary looking, like me, to be able to handle a job like this.
But I must say it isn’t easy to live here with all these funny goats. Goats can be very annoying, you know. First of all, they eat everything! They eat their food bowls and they tried to eat mine too. And they ate my food, so the humans had to screw my food bowl to the top of the fence post. See I’m very tall, and the goats can’t bother my food way up there. Then, when our humans have friends visiting, they try to eat people’s shoes! I don’t think that gives a very good impression. And they're even worse with the human's kids. But those kids can be teasing bad right back at 'em. Maybe that's why both human and goat kids are called, well, KIDS!
Another thing these goats are always doing is jumping up on the turned over bucket. They just love to climb up there and make a racket. Maybe it’s because they’re so small. Standing on a big tub probably makes them feel almost as big and important as me. That’s probably it, but it still annoys me.
But even if I sometimes get annoyed, I feel better when I realize that I have a very important job to do here: I’m the protector of all these little goats. And no coyote would ever dare to come close. Then I feel like I truly love the little goats and feeling that love makes me a happy Mama Llama. The End.

Cuteness! We do have a few llamas around here with some sheep and goats to guard. I more often see burros guarding cattle herds though. :)ReplyDelete
Mama Llama - what a cute little story! Thank you Inger!ReplyDelete
Such a cute story! I have aways thought Llamas were pretty cute too :)ReplyDelete
What a cute story Inger. I have goats & I thought they were described perfectly...lolReplyDelete
Cute, cute story, Inger! Your Happy Mama Llama could turn into a fabulous children's book! In the meantime, could you send me one of those goats? I'm going through boxes and wish a goat would eat that senseless stuff I've kept!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by! I love your comments. You are purr-fect!
Awww, you're not such a bad Llama after all!ReplyDelete
Very cute story Inger...have a lovely evening!
Love it! Our neighbors are alpaca breeders, and they have a guard llama to protect the herd.ReplyDelete
Great story Inger, I agree with Kitty, make the story into a book. Are you good at drawing?ReplyDelete
You're going to need some illustrations.
Hope you have a wonderful evening.
Yep silly goats... good they have you to watch over them :O)ReplyDelete

Great post Inger! I have never seen a real live Llama!ReplyDelete
That was so sweet! I love Llama's and I love goats as well. I have a picture of some Llama's that's almost identical to this one. They must all pose alike. LOLReplyDelete
Nice pictures of the lovely lamas, and you tell a nice story about them, terrific.ReplyDelete
Nice. I raised llamas for 35 years. Now there's no money in raising them. In fact it's hard to give them away. I was going to let 3 old ones die on the ranch but they were still hayburners in the winter and I had to drive out there and struggled with the big bales. Finally a nice guy took all three and no more critters for me. Oh and I raised angora goats for same number of years too. I never again want anything that eats and poops. My dog is all I'll have from now on. Too much work for this old broad!!!ReplyDelete
Very cute and entertaining ... I love llamas/alpacas! They look so proud..ReplyDelete
