Have I Mentioned My New Fiber Source?

Those of you who visit my homestead blog probably already know about Charlie.

He's a "woolly" llama and is the newest addition to our homestead.

He's just a little guy, 6 months old, who is to serve as guard llama for the goats (and chickens apparently), and a fiber source for me.  He's already been sheared this year, which is just as well, because we have our hands full just getting him used to us.

For a few more photos, click here. :)
