Autumn Greeting by ART-fromthe-HEART Autumn Greeting by ART-fromthe-HEART
:star: Prints Available! :star:

The perfect greeter for fall, a fall colored llama! This llama was at a llama breeder when we were looking at a pygmy that would soon be ours. This wonderful girl, named Freckles, was curious about us newcomers. I thought the patches on her face looked just like fallen leaves so I had to paint her.

Original for sale, $100 with double burlwood frame.

:heart: Thanks! Unfortuneately, no. I haven't sold a thing all year. I have lots of fans of my art, which I appreciate endlessly, but no buyers. It's the economy...and I don't blame them. It'll turn around someday. :shrug:

LOL, I know the money thing. My family can't even afford Hallmark X-mas ornaments! But we have about 500 ornaments already so that's okay...O,o

Thank you! I have 3 llamas and they're the sweetest/funniest things ever. Maybe you can persuade your dad to get one. They make EXCELLENT guard animals and are very protective of any kind of livestock - cow, goats, sheep, pigs, you name it. All but horses...they don't get along well. :(

Get goats, they make great pets. Horses are so needy...you have to bathe them, trim and clean hooves, clean teeth, have specific stalls and excercise...goats take care of themselves minus some occasional needed hoof trimming. Plus they can be dog-like in character! I think horses are a bit scary too...pretty, but big (sometimes)and scary...:fear: If you can persuade your dad to get goats you may be able to get a llama too! Muahaha!

Just don't have any flowers where the goats are...they'll eat it. :X I'm not sure what a canadian mini pig is, but I know of a mini pot-bellied pig. The little black ones with lots of wrinkles? They make great pets, more teachable than dogs and so cute! And then you can get a llama. :D
