7/9 3 female llamas, all over 20, left Cortez, CO for Lynda's facility in Albuquerque. They were transported by a volunteer for Denkei Sanctuary in Eden, CO where they had been cared for while waiting for cooler weather. Lynda hopes they will be there long enough for her to shear and trim their nails. She reports that none act like they are 20 but they are shy. After their rest in NM they will move to Cheryl's place in Ruidoso where they will rest again before the final leg of the trip down to our female sanctuary in Kerville, TX where they will live out their lives in peace.
7/13 Lynda helped with an article for the Summit Daily News about 2 llamas, Carlos #433 and Sambra #434 relocating to NM. Sambra showed some borderline aggressive behavior and so Brioni who Carlos had bonded with was substituted in the adoption. Sambra went back to Albuquerque where Channel 13 KRQE wanted an tnterview with him to tell his story. It was aired on the 10 PM news on July 30. Sambra was transported to Questa to join Stuart Wild's herd on 7/26.
