The Llama

I didn't want a llama. Had no desire to have an animal that big. I was just getting used to handling my little alpaca boys and llamas are much larger animals. Actually, llamas are used as guardians for sheep, goats and alpacas. They sound an alarm and will try and herd their flock away from predators.

My hubby had his heart set on a llama and I couldn't say no. He is a very striking animal and his fleece is a pretty light brown - another color to spin!

  1. Uh oh... What's next??? Let me know when you get your elephant - I will definitely plan a trip for that!

    Can Llamas be clicker trained? I hope Choco and Chip are enjoying their new big brother!
