Good-bye TK, my friend

TK, our oldest llama, passed away last night in his barn at the Sipes family ranch.

TK was the patriarch of the Sipes’ llama herd since he arrived in 1997. Elaine and I (and the kids) rescued TK and his three llama brothers from a ranch in eastern Kansas. TK was 10 years old when we rescued (bought) him. TK and the boys were the property of a tapestry weaver having some health issues and could not take care of them. Elaine saw the herd advertised, contacted the woman. I blinked and we were on a two day road trip to eastern Kansas, truck, trailer and all.
