More Llama stories were requested, you don't know what you are asking for. But here goes. When we first got our Llamas, we had traveled all around to different ranches to see how they were set up with fences and barns. We thought long and hard and drew many plans before we started construction. $40,000.00 later we were ready for our first Llamas. A couple of young lady Llamas came to live with us. Their job was to educate us and they did. Llamas don't bite, they don't often kick, but they need to be taught manners, don't spit at humans, don't head butt or push the humans around. Come when called by your name. Wear a head halter and learn to be led by a halter lead rope. We learned never get between two Llamas who are having a disagreement, you're going to get spit on you, always feed the same one first, feed at the same time each day unless you want a Llama hissy fit. And never move fast around a Llama They are as smart as dogs, and easier to train, they love to have fun and get treats, A Llama's sense of humor is present only when they are the one telling the joke. And they are great joke tellers. Humans are inferior animals as is anything that is not a Llama. If they get sick they will put up with almost anything and they trust you to do what is best for them. After raising horses, cow, pigs and chickens it is our pleasure and extreme honor to be part of these wonderful animals lives. More info on request.

Pat, you are indeed a wonderful person! Those llamas must know how loved they are. What could be a greater gift than love?

Llamas are like all camels, they tend to look down on other creatures, the ones that love us are the ones we help birth. They seem to bond with us right away. The others put up with us.

Maybe there's a streak of cat in there somewhere!

Hey Pat! I think that is so interesting! I love hearing about the Llama's! I have been wondering for so long about them! I am really interested in hearing as many stories as you want to tell! They seem to be very interesting animals! They have a way that is totally their very own which I would have never even known! I had no idea how intelligent and humorous they were! Tell us more please!
