#tbt Nebraska, December 2007. The first time I met and pet a llama. This one was my father-in-law’s, his name was Cuzco (or Carlos? There were two) and they’re quite intrusive because they shove their heads towards you so @michaelmakesmovies taught me that you just have to firmly put your hand on their neck just to avoid being headbutted by them. It works. They can also spit at you and I was lucky to leave spit-free. They walk funny but are quite majestic. I think it’s hard not to love these beautiful creatures.
