Meeting the Farm Animals

 

Maxou meets Cousteau, our Great Pyrenees dog.

When meeting a llama it is always best to present your head and allow them to spell you. Llamas can be scared of hands but are very curious animals. They especially like smelling your breath! Here Maxou is meeting Apricot Delight (also known as Appy). She is a first time pregnant llama and is due on Maxou's birthday!

These are the two breeding male alpacas, Smokey and Bear. In the background on the outbuilding is a barn quilt. Barn quilts are painted boards made to resemble patterns found in a quilt. We have eight barn quilts on our farm.

The sheep were dubious of Maxou but will warm up to him once he starts feeding them some grain!

First night in the U.S. means it is time to be put on the family height chart. Maxou is now a member of the Gau family forever! 🙂
