Our New Addition--Zoey the Llama
Topic: Harvest Hills Farm activity
Meet Zoey!
...or "Zoey Monster" as she is referred to by her former foster family.


We recently started a flock of sheep with 11 ewe lambs. You can see them in the background behind her.Needless to say, we were nervous parents of lambs, especially when the coyotes howl in the dead of night and the sheep barn feels miles away. We really wanted a guardian animal to live with them and a llama is a perfect choice.


I went to my favorite source for adoptions first, that's www.petfinder.com where many of my friends and family have started when they want to rescue an animal. That resource led us to Southeast Llama Rescue. 
Southeast Llama Rescue  actually has multiple satellite foster farms all over the United States. Looking through the available llamas, we couldn't help but think that Zoey would be a good fit for us. She was at a foster farm in central Illinois which was about to receive another shipment of 16 llamas the following day, so we were lucky to see her before that farm's busy following day. We all might have gotten lost in that llama explosion.
She's won our hearts and seems right at home with her paddock and barn. However, I can see she is yearning to roam the many fenced pasture areas the sheep have available. For the first few days however, she'll need to stay close to understand this is her new forever home.

Thank you Southeast Llama Rescue . We just love this redhead!
