Meet Miss Molly!
Miss Molly is a white and brown female llama at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch.
Miss Molly’s Story
Miss Molly was rescued in May 2011 with 40 other llamas from a property in Indiana. All of the animals were malnourished and dehydrated and had internal and external parasites. Unfortunately, the situation was so bad, 40 other llamas were found dead when rescuers arrived on the property.
Miss Molly’s Health
Miss Molly is about 7 years old. Ranch staff members gave her medicated baths for the skin problem (rain rot) she had when she came to Longmeadow and now her coat is beautiful. When she arrived at the ranch she was 30 pounds underweight. Now Miss Molly eats a healthy diet of grass in the pasture, hay, and llama pellets and is steadily gaining toward her ideal weight. Her favorite treat is baby carrots snapped in half.
Miss Molly’s Personality
At first Miss Molly was not easy to catch or lead but, with coaxing from ranch staff, she quickly learned. Once she has the halter and lead on, Miss Molly patiently stands to be handled. She likes to hang out with Barn Buddy Teagan, and she’s getting to know some of the other animals at the ranch. Shy at first, Miss Molly is becoming a friendly Barn Buddy willing to have people pet her and give her lots of attention. With time and lots of love she now realizes that people are going to take care of her and she will not be neglected again.
