We ventured out for a lovely winter hike at Heil Valley Ranch with a pack of llamas from Nieman Farm. Upon unloading the llamas we brushed out their coats before placing the saddle. I approached a lovely llama, Cinnie, and felt a solid camelid connection. It took great restraint to refrain from smothering Cinnie with love as llamas greatly appreciate a fair amount of personal space. I knew Cinnie was my llama as he allowed me to pet his endearingly long neck. We enjoyed a lovely stroll through the snowy trail.
