This weekend we installed a mister for the llamas – a little late in the summer season and too later for Airel.  She was found Thursday when the farm help went out to spray the llamas.  She was prone to being over heated – the first year we had her close by we almost lost her to heat.  The last couple of years she has survived the heat/humidity with the multi spray downs she participated in.   Airel will be missed-she was the friendliest in that group.

Since the misters were installed, the llamas lay along the fence line with the mist blowing around them.  These spots become mud spas through the day which is good for keeping thier heat core cool.
