Creek, the Pet of the Day
Name: Creek
Age: Fifteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Llama
Home: Henryville, Indiana, USA
   This is my llama Creek in his costume, he was a ladybug - and yes, there are male ladybugs in nature of course! I got Creek when he was five, he is a gelded male. He is very special to me, we never thought Creek would be a good show animal, we never thought he would be trained to walk on a halter either! But he has shown us all wrong! Creek is a rescue animal, he was neglected and abused until he was four. When he was brought to our farm he had to be carried out to the field. I had been working with llamas for four years at the time, and then and since I have never seen anything like him. He had never been touched. When I started working with him, he was very scared, but with love and care, he has totally come out of him shyness. After I had him for a year, I would show Creek in about six shows a year, including Regionals and Nationals! I took him in parades, nursing homes, hospitals, schools, churches, and sometimes even in the house! Creek is my best friend, I don't know what I would do without him!

    At fifteen, Creek is now the old man of the herd. He is very dear to us. Creek had a wonderful performance career until he was retired in 2006 to be the official farm guardian. He takes this role very seriously, having killed several invading coyotes. We love this old guy, he has a permanent place on the farm.
