A white, adult female llama with a dark brown tail.
Serenity 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.
Serenity had an abscess removed from below her right eye and although it is now healing, sometimes that eye weeps. Our veterinarian assures us her eye will continue to get better. Ranch staff have been giving her medicated baths for the skin problem (rain rot) she had when she came to Longmeadow. Serenity eats a healthy diet of grass in the pasture, hay, and llama pellets and is steadily gaining the 40 pounds she needs to be at an ideal weight. Her favorite treat is baby carrots snapped in half.
Serenity walks easily on a halter and is getting used to the loving attention she receives from the ranch staff and Barn Buddy visitors. She likes to hang out with her other Llama Lady friends and is getting to know some of the other animals at the ranch. Serenity loves to have her back and rump scratched. She is the first of the Llama Ladies to greet visitors, especially when they have a treat. She is the easiest going and most trusting of the llamas at Longmeadow and has quickly realized that people are going to take care of her and she will not be neglected again.
