Llama Training Continues


I'm off for the next two weeks so the llama training is in full swing. After eating out of the bucket once, Willow had a bit of a setback and was refusing to eat out of it again. I now have the time to stand and wait her out. I gave her no grain unless it was held by me. Yesterday she ate her whole meal out of the bucket I held. Today she was eating out of the scoop in my hand so I got out my clicker and started in with clicking her for stepping toward me. I had her moving all around in a few minutes.
This is fun. I really like her and I think she will learn to like me. Just look at that face. I think she has the look of eagles.

She is beautiful! Like I said, no worries here that you will succeed in training her. You have 'the knack'. :)

Ha! she does have the look of eagles. I would want to rub my cheek on that face though..what a gorgeous face. Oh my, I would want to hug on her way too much!!

That's one intelligent face. I'm sure she's relieved to be somewhere where her person knows how to communicate with her. I think there will be lots of conversations between you two!

She's so beautiful, Wendy.
Want to bring her over for a playdate with my Kai llama?

She really is the prettiest Llama I have ever seen. She is the luckiest too!
