I am now hand creating carved and wood burned gourds grown here on our farm. I can do custom logos, or custom work of any sort. Please take a look at my ArtFire Website and let me know if I can create a one of a kind work of art for you. Each item will be custom quoted...I am a custom kind o' gal!
For Fun and Information
One of the most fun and informative sites I found was Mount Lehman Llamas. They have it all...Llama Information, Poisonous Plants, Question & Answers, a Birthing Page (quite informative), Rebreeding Page with chart, Llama Trivia (fun), Body Language, a Humm Page (what sounds mean what) and let's not leave out Barn Art ("Art worth spitting at").
The Tennessee Llama Community has a good site with discussion groups, chat room and a resource library.
Llama Web is a wealth of information regarding anything camelid. Vets, trekking, llamas for sale, llama farms, llama events, trivia and just plain fun.
