..and why would any of them want to ?! This group had been let into the pond field about half an hour before this "Tom Daley" took place. The older girls have used this field many times before, but not so Melinda who is just 9 months old. Nobody has ever done this , its a llama first at Watertown. It certainly made her famous for five minutes with the others, after which she just grazed quite happily, seemingly none the worse for taking the plunge . She picked a spot that gets very deep very quickly so the answer is definitely, yes they can swim , and maybe its called the camelid crawl ?
