While I will never be a true cowgirl, I have learned some interesting things from my livestock tending neighbors next door.
In every flock there is always a bawl baby, that is one lamb that refuses to join the flock and will stand off by itself and just "bawl." That bawling attracts the predators and before you know it.
Seems the mountain lion sightings have been confirmed, a neighbor caught the critter(s) on a trail camera. We have known about the animal for quite some time as smaller pets have been disappearing.
I have posted a couple of llama images. The wayward llama has been corralled and because the animal has never been gentled (or calmed down and used to people), it will have to be darted so a face halter that is now too small can be removed. Seems country vets don't like to work on llamas (they can spit when threatened or when the animal wants to show aggression).
