Marty McGee (Bennett) isn't that old - barely the other side of 40 - but she has been a fixture in the llama business almost since there was a llama business. Marty started out in the llama biz as a professional fiber artist-one of the first to work with llama wool. Those were the days when llama wool was often pulled off of various grooming tools in little lumps or swept up off the barn floor . In the beginning it was a bit like spinning gold out of straw. Marty once received a fleece with dead snake in it! Both she and the llama business have come a long way. After meeting up with Linda Tellington-Jones in 1987 Marty dedicated herself to bringing Linda's work, known as TTEAM, to the llama community. The loom and spinning wheel are now on loan. Marty spends her time traveling around the globe teaching her special brand of animal understanding to people who wish to move beyond the limits of traditional training. Marty has changed the lives for the better for countless llamas alpacas and their people; teaching owners to understand and relate positively to their charges as well as get the management job done in a kind and reasonable way. Return engagements to Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland as well as clinics in the US and Canada make her the most sought after and respected trainer in the alpaca and llama business today. With two books and six video tapes to her credit she is always innovating and updating the "Cutting Edge." When she is not on the road teaching Marty McGee (Bennett) lives in Santa Fe New Mexico with her husband Brad Bennett and their dog Rocky Raccoon.Review:
My husband and I are new and very green llama owners; however after reading your book we are convinced that TTEAM and your methods are both the most practical and humane for our llama friends. Your book is definately superior. -- (From a Pleased Reader)
