Cooper the Llama

Now I bet you are wondering why I have a picture of a llama on our site! Well, let me introduce Cooper, a packing llama for Yellowstone Safari Company. This group takes people into Yellowstone and pack in supplies with their llamas. This past summer we got an emergency call from the group, stating that Cooper was badly injured in the back country and they needed help in getting him out. He had broken a leg, which is not a very good situation. So, we grabbed a couple of wranglers and a few good horses and headed into the Park to find Cooper. This was how we got their vet to the scene of the crime. They wound up splinting the Cooper and helped him limp out of the Park and into the trailer to the vets.

Well, it took two surgeries, lots of care, and I’m sure a lot of vet bills, but we just got word from Yellowstone Safari that Cooper is Back!! Now that’s a happy ending and another exciting adventure at the Covered Wagon Ranch!!

    …and instead of giving them other horses mean looks when they try to get past it on the wrangle, like Bitty and Chum would do, it could spit at them!!

    Oooh! I think you guys should get a llama for the ranch. That would be awesome! Jeremy could start it and it could be a wrangle llama. Hah!
