Dotty was the last llama on Llama Lane. She was born in 1996 here on the family farm and watched over our sheep and goats until her passing in 2018. She was a great protector and friend to her charges, often letting the young lambs and kids crawl on her back. Whenever she was separated from them, she would hum and pace until re-united. Now she will always be watching her flock. The barn, built in 1988, replaced an earlier bank barn. Sideling Hill lays to the west and some of the headwaters of the Tonoloway Creek start on the farm.
