TEETH, A STARE, AND A SPIT

Teeth that could star in Pirates of the Caribbean, a stare to match your mother's, and a malevolent spit?

Llamas are thoughtful and easy to maintain, and are popular pets. They get rather large, though, so we've inherited several from people moving house. Bart came first, from a woman touring the farm eight years ago. We put him directly with the babies, and they loved him as if he were the Pied Piper. Bart would lie down in the pastures, and have the babies jump all over him, but wouldn't let the adult goats near.

Good cop

The next couple of llamas came five years ago. They were show animals, so rather better looking than Bart, in llama circles. All three are working animals, not toys. A dog escaped onto the pasture last February, but the llamas immediately herded the goats behind them, and stood three in a line between the dog and the goats. They spit and kick viciously in defense of their herd and territory.

Bad cop

We have five llamas now, two with the non-milking herd over the road. Their stand-offish, efficient personalities, and the way they move, are perfect. No more llamas, though, thank you.
