Two of our three llamas are being used by kids in our 4H club (we have no kids of our own, but I enjoy being a 4H leader and helping other people's kids). This is Scoops (the brown one), and Patrone (the white one) at 4H practice on Saturday. So that's why we occasionally are concerned with hauling llamas

I sense a new expression here. Different than hauling donkeys.

I like the trailer!

1949 trailer . . .

You had me going there for a second.

That is just too much. Rivet lines and all. And the llamas are something else ~ have you thought of painting the trailer in the style of an Argosy?

Looks like the axle is bad.

What you have here is an "Airstream Shetland" model '49. It was used by the discriminating rancher in his "hay-day".....

Or....

A friend used to refer to an Airstream as a beer keg on wheels....you now have a "pony-keg"
