About the Cover: 

The Lady Llamas at Posey Thisisit Llama Farm in Shenandoah County.

19 year old Tootsie, 18 year old Mystique, 20 year old Ivy Lace and the one hiding behind the post is 19 year old Butterscotch Mink. Tootsie likes to be petted and her back rubbed. Mystique loves to have people feed her apples, carrots and a good back rub. Ivy Lace likes people at a distance but is at the back door of the house at 6:30 in the morning ready for her breakfast – a bowl of llama grain. Mink likes a back rub and wants you to rub really hard. Photo by Bob Tagert.
