RJ Llama


RJ is such a clown. He loves to tease people and is rewarded with his favorite HORSE Treats. He is docile but will love to give chase; his favorite game, with the dogs. He’s been known to go inside the house to check it out, and see where our accommodations are.

RJ rubs his head against the tree until he gets his harness off. His expression is one of self-satisfaction as he almost succeeded in getting the harness free. Underneath the guard hairs his fur is soft; he enjoys getting haircuts as they cool him down in the hot Texas heat.

One of RJ’s favorite pastimes is playing tag with the people. One time he got out of his acreage and made it up to the interstate and was starting to egress on the interstate. People appeared and made a circle with their cars so it would corral him in and give me a chance to rope him and take him back home. It was raining and I had my hand out the window holding the rope on RJ and I ran/walked his butt back home. The police were kind enough to follow us and keep us safe had their been any cars on the roadway.

Another time Rj jumped the fence into the neighbors paddock, he played keep-away for also an hour when he finally came and stood by me, I admonished him and told him to go home and he did. He was sure ornery and cantankerous when the mood struck him.

I miss my RJ so desperately. I only prayer is that he found a good home and doesn’t hold a grudge against me in letting him and his family go. Robert was so very ill and we couldn’t continue to pay out the $250.00 a month for their food, haircuts and vet bills were extra. So I gave them to a good man who promised they would have good long lives protecting his goats. As fate would allow seven years later, I can now afford their upkeep but have know way of knowing where they are located at. 😦  I know it was near Waco, TX.

Peace Rj, peace.
