About the LLama Scandal...

I have absolutely nothing to say at the moment, except "What happens in Lima stays in Lima."

Also, let the record show that Robbo had nothing to do with the picture: let's just say INDCent Bill is a beast for pillow salad and leave it at that.

And as for the orgle? Well, it's true what they say: once you've had orgle, you'll never go back....

BTW, I left the laptop at the office Friday @ 2 pm, went to a faculty meeting, then went home and had a fabulous weekend with the family---got the tree up, put out more lights outside, took the kids to a birthday party, all the while not realizing my reputation was being trashed by alleged friends and colleagues.

We'll remember.......

UPDATE: But of course....

I'd say we kid you because we love you. But that just sounds too dirty at this point.

I don't know what the hell is going on here but I just yelled at Rusty and his commentators. Also saw the picture of the two llamas. Actually when I breed my llamas the female has her tail wrapped and is lying down flat on the ground and I help the male get situated in the right place, always sticking my hand it, down on my knees, looking to see if he's where he's supposed to be and keeping her tail out of the way. Most of them do it naturally anyway. It's called "Hand breeding" when you do it this way, making sure that if the female does get bred, you know exactly who the father is. I've only birthed two so far and I know I have two that are pregnant. If it wasn't so damn cold out, I'd go check the rest with the male because when the female does not want to be bred or is already pregnant, it's a messy fight. Males do it constantly to each other and they "play" and fight this way from the time they are born, bumping chests and all. I normally go in and break it up if it gets a wee bit too violent. It's also how they figure dominence among themselves. Females also challenge one another but not like the males do - they can be tough AND it's the only time they spit, unlike what most people think. They do a lot more than orgle when they breed; it's like they are having a heart attack. Actually, the orgle is a sound, along with the front leg caressing motion that is supposed to make the female release an egg because they don't have "heat" times like other animals do - the sound and the caressing needs to be done in order for her to release an egg, so that's why you do this again 3 days later. AND your herdshire will do this to just about anything, including a baby which is why you have to keep him separate. Breeding actually seems painful and extremely stressful for the male so it's important he's watched and taken care of afterwards.

So as much as I hate the name Llama Butchers, I thought I'd pass on a little advice on how breeding llamas actually works and those that have been causing you guys some consternation on other blogs can all go to hell.

Ok, where's the post Robert made where he said he didn't know me, so I must be Steve's groupie? I'd like to see the other posts after mine.
