She is 24 years old today. I got her in 2001 as a guard animal for my sheep and goats. She was added in addition to a guard llama Swirl I had.
In 2004 she was getting way too fat on the pastures here so I had to move her away from the sheep and goats onto a pen of wood chips. So we bought Marty to keep her company.
We briefly tried to teach them to pack but crossing water was a no-go. But she does a good job of guarding still, letting us know if there are predators in the area.
Olivia used to have quite a bit of hoof problems including abscesses that needed soaking. Fortunately her hooves have improved over the years.
She is quite friendly and tolerant of me.
She is also great with farm visits, particularly children.
And she likes her treats.
I just love her.
