The New Kids on the Block

This is our neighbor Kate.  Kate and her husband Mike raise alpacas.  They are big-hearted folks, and when they heard about two llamas that needed rescuing, they didn't hesitate.  But then they learned that the llamas had a special friend - a horse!  Mike and Kate have never had a horse, but the three were inseparable, so they said yes to the horse too!


Mia is a 7 year old mustang/quarter horse cross.  She is sweet and mellow in spite of her abusive past.  David and I get to provide advise and loving!  We are pretty excited.


The young llama is the most at risk.  She is skin and bones.  Kate is an expert alpaca owner, and the little one couldn't be in better hands.  This is one very lucky trio.  We are lucky too to have such good neighbors.

How wonderful! The horse is cute and it is so neat that your llama friends were willing to step out of the box and take all three.

I like when I hear of a rescue. Properly cared for they can do a 180 in a fairly short time, barring unforeseen problems.

Remember Little Red? A Miracle!

Definitively in the good neighbour category! More fun for you too.

What a wonderful pair of people to take in the poor neglected animals... it's heartbreaking to see them treated like this. I'm glad they've found a good home. (The little mare is a beauty)

Well sounds like to me those three landed right where they need to be! I bet they all do super between your sweet neighbors and you guys!

I started reading and thought to myself, "Those don't look like alpacas." Your friends are VERY kind. Good for you for helping them along the way. Hoping to hear more about these lovely creatures in the future.
