Re: The LlamaZine

Smitty,

I live in Iowa and you know what the weather has been like. All I've managed to do so far is get all the seats out. The bus barely fits into my corn crib (with front mirrors removed). As soon as it gets warm enough in there to work I'll get pictures up.

I AM NOT A TEASE!

Re: The LlamaZine

OK! Now that it has FINALLY warmed up here in east central Iowa, I have finally been able to get some work done on the LlamaZine. Instead of posting the pictures here, I have put up a page on our web site devoted to the project that you can see here: http://www.llamasrus.net/llamazine.aspx

Please take a look and let me know what you think. Still a long way to go and our first show of 2010 is in 3.5 weeks.

Re: The LlamaZine

Well, it's 95% done, and it made it's first shakedown cruise on May 14th. We took the LlamaZine, complete with 9 llamas, to a show in Faribault, MN. The bus performed as well on the road as our llamas did in the show ring. We are happy with how it has turned out so far and just have some small tweaks left to work on.

I am almost embarrassed to post pictures as it is nowhere near the quality of many of the buses on this board, but it is simply meant to be little more than a rolling livestock trailer/hard-sided tent. So, be nice guys!



You can see the rest of the pictures atour llama web site below my signature.

Love the bus!! I read here and there of people wanting to do that for their horses but never seen it done. First llama bus I've seen Fascinating creatures.

Re: The LlamaZine

I LIKE the paint & striping job on the outside. It gives it a real . . . I guess I'd call it an "executive" look.
