Hello, everyone on this beautiful going to church today and attending the farewell lunch for our pastor, Dr. Dub Oliver. But Bob continues to improve hourly and this morning after our first walk he "passed" another hurdle, he had a . Please join us in a big "Hallelujah, Praise the Lord"! He can now start drinking liquids and soon will be eating again, and then get out of this hospital. He hasn't taken any morphine "hits" from the pump since 3:30 yesterday and though he feels some pain, he says he can deal with it.
. We will miss
Thanks to everyone for keeping Bob in your prayers.

All four llamas have been sheared now. That should be a lot more comfortable for them. They are such funny animals.
They weren't amused by the whole procedure... here is "Spot" getting clipped this afternoon.
I think "Junior" looks cute in his llama-pajamas.
His sister "Blaze" was not at all happy. Below is a photo of her showing us what she is going to spit at us if we don't leave her alone. But she got over it real fast.

It's always nice to hear from our previous buyers. This came today:
I purchased Unicorners Mime in Rhyme from you several years ago. Just wanted to tell you that she is still here and we still love her. Mime had her first foal this year, a little filly that looks almost exactly like her mom! We couldn't be more pleased. I've attached a picture of them. Just wanted to say thanks again.

We visited friends today at a donkey and mule show in Belton, Texas, about 4o miles south of us.
We enjoyed walking around and taking some photos. There were some beautiful long ears there.
But that braying! That must take some getting used to!
HURRY UP WITH MY BOTTLE!
Not a lot happening around the farm. I'm still bottle-feeding our last Tunis lamb. His mom just doesn't produce enough milk for him so we supplement him several times a day. We named him... Trouble.But isn't he adorable. It really is nice to have a bottle baby, and since he lives with his mom he isn't totally dependent on us.
