ALMOST 30 expats turned out to help escort two elderly llamas to a new mountain home.

Rosanna, 21 (84 in llama years) and daughter Benna, 18 (72) tramped 15km up hill and down dale in a five-hour journey to Tijola, in the Alpujarras.

“We really didn’t know whether they were going to make it,” joked new owner Bernard Byrne, 59, who runs the Orgiva tea garden with his wife Kay.

“But they did well and are enjoying it here.”

Previous owner Lizzie Wynn, who adopted Rosanna in Wales in 1995 when the llama was just three months old, is moving back to the UK.
