I imagined the story continuing; maybe I would write a trilogy. How were the mother and son received by their family, and by others in the llama community? Some ridiculed them, others thought they were dangerous or evil for turning to a spiritual tradition other than Christian, and still others wanted to blindly follow them. […]

Linda Rodgers and I took Thundercloud for a walk. He had been breeding with Lil Bit that week, and he didn’t want to leave his view of the ladies. He hummed and tried to turn back, pulling hard on the lead rope. Before breeding season, he had relished hiking, but it held no charms for […]

Penelope found Renny to be extraordinary in the reach of her mind and living less fully in her body than other llamas did. That fit my sense of reality too. Renny was always watching everything, with intense curiosity. “Would TEAM help her be in her body more?” I asked. TEAM was a method of working […]

We went in the house for some tea, welcome after being out in the spring winds. As dusk fell, Penelope continued with Cider, our Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. She told us that Cider was quite an incredible being who had adventures on other levels of consciousness. Then she turned her attention to Teddy Bear, our Australian […]

“Maybe Juniper Ridge isn’t ultimately the best place for us to live,” he said. That startled me. I did feel some ambivalence about our home. I loved its magnificence and grandeur, but the snow, ice, and fog almost half the year often made ranch work and driving to town difficult. You could be isolated up […]

The next morning, Kelly went out to feed the llamas. A minute later, he was back. “Rosana, Renaissance is dead,” he said. My mind couldn’t process the words. I stared at him blankly. Dead. Somebody’s dead. Who did he say? Renny? No, that doesn’t make any sense. Maybe it’s a chicken or a peacock. That’s […]

Our sadness lingered, but events were moving very quickly. Little Perry was several weeks old now. She delighted us in the evenings with her antics, as other babies had done in earlier years. There was a pang to our pleasure, though: was this the last baby llama we would live with? It was hard to […]

We walked up to see Posey and Perry, in the little side yard where Kelly had placed them once Posey could walk. I wouldn’t have guessed that anything was the matter. Maybe she was moving a little slowly. By the time a veterinarian arrived, everything was normal including Posey’s temperature at 101. The vet wondered […]

But what else to do? I called Penelope, but the line was busy. I kept dialing her number, and finally Penelope answered. I described the situation a little. “I get something in the small intestine or first part of the large intestine,” she said. “Actually her whole digestive tract is upset. And there’s a constriction, […]

Kelly and I went outside and talked to Posey. Kelly told her that he would like her to stay but he would respect her choice, and that she had the choice. He told her that he loved her a lot. “Posey, I really want you to stay,” I began. “I know it’s hard for you […]

“For a long time after we left Juniper Ridge, I missed watching you and Kelly. Through you, I got glimpses into the consciousness of humans. It seems very, very strange to me. It must be hard to be a human. Kelly seems more like us llamas than you do. He draws a lot of energy […]

There are many tales that could be told of Elk Hill. Linda and Nelson seem to have truly found their right livelihood in llamas. In recent years, as their own herd has grown, they have known the grief of losing beloved animals, the frustration of females with pregnancy problems–and the countless moments of delight that […]

It’s been more years than I care to count since we gave up Juniper Ridge Ranch and our llamas. It did turn out to be a good choice for us, painful as it was at the time. As I mentioned in the story, we sold a few of the llamas in our herd to various […]
