With the end of the semester fast approaching, my students and I will be doing our Spring Studio Recital this coming Friday, April 30th at 7:00pm. It will be held at the Woodland Christian Church, 430 Buckeye St, Woodland WA 98674. We will be playing several duets by Ignace Pleyel, some fun little piano duets, and many other duet/small ensemble pieces. These students have worked hard to prepare some nice music to share with others. Please come and receive a blessing from the music while being an encouragement to these young musicians.

Llamas for sale!

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Yes, you read that right. My llamas are for sale. I have no need for them anymore so I’m looking for some good homes to send them to. If you know anyone that might be interested, let me know.

I’ve owned llamas for at least 14 years now! It’s hard to believe it’s really been that long. I’ve learned a lot of lessons from my animals over the years. Lessons about responsibility, diligence, trust, obedience, authority, etc. If possible, I think it’s really important for kids to raise pets. There’s so much to learn from animals.

Chocolate Oreo

This is Oreo. He sure is a good looking llama. He’s super friendly too. I’ve always thought he’d make a great pack llama because he’s got a strong build. But, I’ve just never been diligent enough to train him to do that. I got Oreo when he was about 3 months old. He’s already 7 years old! Time sure goes by fast!!!

Sforzando Black Bear

Sforzando was born at my house. He’s 4 years old now. You’re probably thinking, “Why the funny name?” Well, when you’ve had animals your whole life, you start to run out of things to name them. 🙂 You musicians already know this but, a sforzando is a musical term…a dynamic marking that happens to be one of my favorites. I know it doesn’t really make sense to name your llama after a music term but….so what! 😛

Sugar Bear

Sugar Bear

Sugar is the mother to them all. She’s 12 years old already! Infact, her birthday was yesterday, lol. I figured that out as I was looking at her papers a few minutes ago. I think she’s the best trained llama I’ve ever owned. The lady that owned her before me used to take her to the fairs and do the obstacle courses with her. I’ve always thought that’d be fun but again, never had the diligence to do it.

I have one other young llama that is gray and white. I don’t have any pictures of him though. He is also one of Sugar Bear’s babies. His name is Scherzo…yes, that’s a music term also. 😉

It’s interesting to think about getting rid of my llamas. They’ve been around for so long, the place just won’t be the same without them. But, they need a better home now. I’ve moved on to other things in life and I just can’t take care of them anymore. I am keeping my goats; they still have a purpose of keeping the blackberries under control around here.
