Wouldn’t it be perfect, a day out
In the fresh air, but with a new friend?
Wouldn’t it be great to walk side by side
With the fluffiest llama they send?
Wouldn’t it be nice to talk a llama
And try out that thing that’s become a new trend?
I really want to go to a llama or alpaca farm and go on one of those hikes where you walk alongside your new friend. They seem to have become all the rage and it’s a bandwaggon that I would like to jump on.
There is something so soothing about chatting to an animal, and I can’t go on walks with my cat. I also think there’s something so nice about the fact that a llama is roughly the same height as a human so it doesn’t feel like you’re talking down to them like you would a dog.
I am aware that this is a ridiculous post, but sometimes you just need to put it out into the world and then perhaps it will happen because the universe has heard you.
Let’s go find a nice llama farmer who can lend me one for an afternoon.

It’s not a ridiculous post at all, Rachel. Llamas are great animals, and I think you can learn a lot from animals in general. That’s why I love it when kids have the chance to meet llamas, cows, goats, lambs, etc., at petting farms. Our relationship with animals is important, and I like it when kids start seeing animals as friends.
I don’t think the post is ridiculous. I think llamas and alpacas are cool, and I enjoy being around them. (Alpacas spit less.) I have a friend who has a llama farm nearby, and there are other llama farms around. I think you’re on a fine and promising bandwagon. Rein away.
