Llamas…on Bute?

“Look at those funny looking sheep over there”, I said to the spouse as I ground to a halt on the bike, glad of an excuse to stop on yet another uphill stretch of road. As we drew closer I was rather surprised to see that the sheep was in fact that rare beast, a Scottish llama. It was noisily ripping huge chunks of Sticky Willy out of the spiny hawthorn hedge and munching it with a crazed ferocity which made me feel slightly nervous. Especially when I noted the low height of the fence.

The llama is apparently a small camelid, but as you can see from the photo, it’s actually part giraffe, part dog, part goat, part sheep, a hint of emu, a touch of deer, and the face of a kangaroo. Cute…I think…
