Baby & Nessie the camels getting hyped up during the first cool windy day of Fall. They play together much the same way two excited dogs would. Just more camel-y.
In 2006, I realized my dream of owning a camel as a pet. Baby the camel came into my life at only four weeks old. I raised him, feeding him on a bottle for ten months and training him myself. Baby was even more intelligent, sensitive, and beautiful than I ever could have thought. I felt lucky to be able to spend every day with him. We developed a close relationship built on trust and Baby would follow me everywhere.
Years later, I got Nessie. A rambunctious two week old baby chocolate camel. I immediately fell back into the routine of bottle feedings at all hours of the night and I loved every minute of it. It's been a great adventure owning camels and I hope one day Nessie will have a baby of her own.
Other than the camels, I share my life with an assortment of other animals. Including, dogs, sheep, ostrich, emu, a hornbill and a cat. In the future, I plan on breeding and raising high quality sheep. Some of the babies may be available from time to time to loving pet homes. For more information see www.camelsandfriends.com
