I Spoke Too Soon...

Remember when I posted about the stray llama that showed up in the neighbor's pasture? And how the interloper had seemingly found a permanent home in the neighborhood, so no more llama drama was expected? Well, seems I spoke too soon.
At the end of March, I spied "Lone Star Llama" about a mile further away in a pasture along the highway towards town (probably about a half-mile cross-country trip from where it had been living).
Definitely our 'Star' llama.

 Happily hanging out with several horses in this field.


If he or she moves on from here, I'll probably lose track of it as it is outside of the neighborhood now.


Just a rambling, roaming llama... Safe travels!

Very unusual ..cant say I've seen them often..see alpacas instead. Nice looking llama.

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, The Run*Around*Ranch Report is always a fun stop. Neat post here on the llama. Sure enjoy the way you keep us posted on the wild and not-so-wild life there in your area. Always appreciate your kind comments on John's Island! Have a great day, John

A Quiet Corner said...

They are wonderful protectors so I hope it decides to stick around your neck of the woods!...:)JP

Pom Pom said...

That's funny! Just keep on walking. That must be what the lovely llama is thinking.

georgettesullins said...

The horses don't seem to mind at all.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, the lone star llama is so beautiful though.....hope it stays safe....Blessings Francine.

eileeninmd said...

I think the llama likes to travel. It looks happy visiting with his horse friends. Great shots.

MarmePurl said...

I have a plan: Lone Stare can escort runaway sheep on a long walk to VA.

Amy Burzese said...

You have a knack for finding wandering souls. Llama drama. :)

Dianna said...

He's a nomad.....

Terri said...

He seems to be happy just visiting around the neighborhood.

val's alentejo blogspot.com said...

Incredible Tex.. A wondering Llama.!):
do you think he is at home where he belongs.. ! he might just end up at your place one day ):-
happy weekend.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

he/she needs a llama cam - get all those shots of him/her visits around the area. that would be fun!! ( :

have a good weekend.

Gail Dixon (La.Belle) said...

This guy certainly has a wandering, adventurous spirit! I love the nickname you gave him; it's perfect, as are your photos. :)

Lynne said...

The horses and Ilama seem to get along just fine . . .
Wandering one he is . . .

Nancy Claeys said...

Nothing sadder than a homeless llama. Lol. I hope it finds a permanent home soon!

Arija said...

He is a sweetie and obviously likes horses. That dark brown horse could do with a good brushing, the llama probably too. Hope he does not disappear from your sights.

Eva Ason said...

How cute, and seems to feel comfortable with the horses.

Birdman said...

Did it jump the fence to be with company?

Brk Trt said...

We can all get along.

Sandra said...

I am lovin llama drama, keep it coming. i like that last shot, so cute... i wonder how it got there, maybe someone moved it there, or it took to the road and walked there... you need one for your ranch... so we can get more drama...how about it...

Maggid said...

It would be lovely to have a llama stop by for tea . . . hmm, what kind of sandwich, i wonder, would a llama like best? I should prepare, in case . . .

love & love,
-g-

Yes!!! I shall invite a llama for lunch - and see if it decides to stay. Although, i have no horses for companionship . . hmm,

DJan said...

I do hope that llama doesn't stray too far from your camera. Maybe he thinks he's a horse... :-)

Julia said...

He, she must belong to someone and how it got separated from the herd. It seems to enjoy the company of horses and they seem to get along nicely together. I wonder what will happen when it comes time that it wants to breed.

Hugs,
JB

Buttons said...

Morning Tex safe travels "Star" I do hope life is good for you it is sad you are on your own. B

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

What a hobo! Glad to see the horses aren't so worried this time.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I love how it's there just hanging with the horses and fitting in :)

Sandra Wilkes said...

Can't even imagine a stray llama coming over....my friend,however, has a "new" llama farm in south GA.

Fjällripan said...

Haha, he/she seems to have a good life :) To go wherever he/she wants, hope he stays safe though :)

Gail said...

I had relatives like that...

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

That's kind of odd since I think most llamas tend to stay home. Maybe she's looking for some sheep or goats to tend.

holdingmoments said...

Well, he seems happy enough. Let's hope he keeps safe.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

He kind of fits right in! Hard to spot unless you are looking for him. Llama drama...too funny!

ellen abbott said...

No telling where it came from originally. Escaped from someone and been moving ever since. I'm surprised that folks just let it be, moving from pasture to pasture. It must leap the fences. Other people's horses and cattle are quickly sorted out.

btw, I saw two wood ducks fly over my head this morning and stop for a bit in one of my neighbor's trees. Then on they went.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I hope he keeps safe too! He seems to be managing fine on his own... with a little help from friends!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

How do you think it gets out of and into the other pastures? LOL! Houdini Llama! blessings ~ tanna

Farm Girl said...

could that be his home? I wish I lived closer I would bring him home with me.
He looks like a nice llama.

Sally in WA said...

That llama looks very content where he is now.

Misty DawnS said...

Ha! That is quite the story. Now I'm intrigued as to where it originally came from... where its travels will take it... You could make a children's book out of this!

Bewildermunster said...

What a beautiful llama! I'm surprised it gets along with the horses-- I've never seen a llama with horses before!

Beth said...

A wonderful series of shots. I hope the llama stays in your area.

Donna said...

Funny how it keeps running away from home!

Bruce Clark said...

He's just trying to blend in and keep a low profile :)

Deanna said...

I hope he finally finds his home, but seems like he is doing just fine in his roaming!!

Sally Crowe said...

You're always full of surprises! Love it. :)

Patty Woodland said...

Poor thing. It's probably not getting the care it needs.

joeh said...

That is the ugliest hhorse I've ever seen!

rainfield61 said...

Just an old friend.

Tammie Lee said...

that is quite a story, amazing to consider. thank you for sharing.

don said...

A very interesting series and follow up onthe llama. It is amazing how well it chooses to fit in with other animals. By now I"m wondering who actually owns this animal and where does it belong. Mystery for sure! :-)

Stephanie said...

Very interesting about the Llama hanging out with the horses. Great posts and shots!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I don't think I've seen a llama in person, let along one hanging out with horses. What great shots and a beautiful animal.

islandwonder said...

Oh my goodness! That is funny!!!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, a little llama drama for the day! How fun!

Small City Scenes said...

We had a dog like that once. He wandered. MB

jabblog said...

I suppose he's a traveller at heart and cannot be content in one place for long.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Well at least he/she wanders into a pasture vs. hanging out on a road and being a hazzard, wonder what the property owners think.

Molly The Wally said...

OMD Llama drama is back hooray. Wonder where he is from? Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Karen said...

He thinks he's a horse!

Gunilla Bäck said...

It's a beautiful animal. I hope it'll find a safe place to stay.

Liz said...

He must have missed you!! Or he's back for more portraits!! :)

Maple Lane said...

He seems very content!

bailey-road.com said...

He'e quite the handsome fella!

Cheryl said...

I love that this llama is able to make its way across Texas unhampered. It's looking well-fed and content.

LisaS said...

That is one funny looking critter. ;)

ladyfi said...

A wandering llama with the travel bug. So adorable!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

The Llama who wanted to be a horse ....too cute! I will pray for his safety.

Existe Sempre Um Lugar said...

Como sempre o é, as imagens encantam pela qualidade e pelo que representam.

Paul said...

I'm thinking this Llama must be a good fence jumper to be able to move so freely about. Interesting story you've been following.

Steve Gravano said...

That's funny. Hey I think you have something there for a song....Just a rambling, roaming llama.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
One wonders if the owner(s) don't look after him...
Happy weekend!
Mariette

polkadotpeticoat said...

Doesn't his owners miss him or her? Heidi

Ian H said...

Why not be nice and adopt him?

parker said...

Star certainly gets around. Seems to be welcome wherever it decides to show up!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

He/she seems happy as long as there is some food to eat.

peter

Larry Ostby said...

"Llama drama" says it all. Nice pics, Thanks T.

Robin Lamb said...

T, a handsome Llama with a bit of wanderlust! I wonder if it's owners noticed it was gone!

Leovi said...

Exquisite call between horses, precious pictures!

Jeanne said...

Kinda like Forest Gump!

Raggedy Creations said...

llama drama....LOL i like that.

Felicia

SweetMarie said...

You should adopt him! He's adorable!

RedPat said...

I wonder what the horses think of it?!

Kate said...

I think that the "Star" llama just likes company.

Lynda said...

It is pretty! We have a llama farm a few miles from here - - - or maybe it's alpacas. Hmmmm - - - what's the difference? Sounds like that might be what I learn today. I will look it up.

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...Are you sure he doesn't have "neighborhood watch duty" ; )
Cute story ..he seems happy!!
Grace

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Having just visited a llama farm, I can say that maybe this one should just leave Texas and head towards Tennessee for its next adventure! :-)

Bob Bushell said...

Lovely Llama, why don't you foster it???

Jo's World said...

I wonder why Lone Star Llama's people aren't looking for it. I seem to remember they are quite expensive to buy!

Cheers,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Paula said...

At first I thought you were going to say the Star llama came to visit your place.

Madge Bloom said...

Too funny... thanks for all you comments and encouragement when I couldn't come by your place...

Montanagirl said...

I like his white-marked face. As I've said before: The grass is always greener . . . .

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Maybe the llama is looking for a mate?? Gotta eat along the journey!

Barb said...

I've never seen a llama with those facial markings. Maybe it has spring fever?

Janey and Co. said...

I have an idea. You from time to time...have a give away. I think you know where I am going with this....

The Lone Star Llama give away!

Stephen Hayes said...

Lone Star Llama---great name for this wandering beastie!

Debbie said...

ooohhhh i remember!! nice to see he's livin' off the land!!

i like when you tell a story ;))

have a fun sunday!!

MTWaggin said...

No one seems to upset about it all! Loner Llama - interesting how he travels.

Linda said...

I really think you should add Lone Star llama to your menagerie. It's sad to think it might be homeless, although it seems to find temporary homes aplenty.

Linda R said...

I am thinking he is enjoying the company of those horses. Who knows!

Hugs~

Karen said...

Llama seems to fit in well with the horses, they don't seem to mind. Hope it finds a permanent home soon.

Sandy Carlson said...

The llama seems to be working very hard to fit in with the Lone Star locals!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Pretty llama! I didn't know they would get along so well with horses.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

'Lone Star Llama', I remember it well. Apparently, it pretty stealthy for it's size (how does llama hide?).

Red said...

This is a weird story. I wonder if somebody just ditched him?

edenhills said...

Well, gee, if he came here, he'd be welcome to stay. We only have one cranky llama in the back forty.

Willow said...

By the end of tat post I was singing ... "drifiting along with the tumbeling tumbleeeds" lol a lama on the go :)

Kerry said...

Llama drama! I love it. He looks quite healthy and happy. Ranchers should welcome this guy. He will chase away coyotes and such.

Karen S. said...

Great news, and he's so special too, and that last photo is just awesome. They are really quite adorable, when used to people and like that contact!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I wish Lone Star Llama safe travels if the owner doesn't find it.

Linda said...

Neat pictures! Llamas are fun to look at.

Fireblossom said...

If I were a llama, I would want to be THAT llama. And I DO want to be a llama!

Genie Robinson said...

What a fun story, Hope he finds a home before too much longer. I would think his roaming life is a bit of a dangerous one. genie

Randy said...

Your horses are very accepting.

Hanne Bente said...

How sweet - seems to enjoy it :)

Brian King said...

haha! That's funny how it just shows up randomly! Makes you wonder where it's been in the meantime. It's a good looking llama!

Midmarsh John said...

Nothing as exotic as that roams my neighbourhood.

Jeevan said...

Beautiful photos on grazing and great to share for him along with horses. Liked the last one

McGuffy Ann said...

There is a llama on the back roads, fenced in near an abandoned farm. I worry about him. He seems so lonely.

Michaele said...

Some were just born to wander. So glad the horses don't mind.

MarkD60 said...

So... How did he get from one pasture to the other?

Candy C. said...

That's funny that it keeps wandering from place to place! :)

petspeopleandlife said...

The llama really is a pretty one. I just hope that no one causes him/her any harm.

I wish the llama were mine. I cann't understand someone letting it go. Maybe they moved or is it possible they don't know where he/she has gone?

Reena Walkling said...

Llama drama ... love it!

barbara l. hale said...

Looks like that llama just needs a change of scenery now and then.

bon bon said...

it kind of looks like his legs were just "stuck on" in that last shot. ;)

Sketchbook Wandering said...

How adorable is that!?!! If all people could feel so free & content...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Llama drama! More chapters to come?

Faye said...

So the horses are okay with this sharing the pasture? I've heard that they can be kind of nasty--spitting, etc? But maybe this one knew he/she was welcome to stop by the TWG Ranch?

pattisjarrett said...

They gypsy llama.

Rose said...

Maybe it will the neighbhorhood llama and just make the rounds.

Amanda Pope said...

I am surprised no one has either tried to capture it or posted about it locally?

Barb Brookbank said...

Yes, safe travels - it's pretty adventurous!

Marie said...

So cute! She's make the subject of a darling children's story!

Michael Manning said...

Quite a wanderer and never a dull moment! :)

Pat Tillett said...

Very interesting and amusing! A wandering llama gathers no moss...

Nice photos also!
