here's only a few of them...
We were told he was 3 years old at the time, so he'd be about 11 now. He hadn't been halter-trained or apparently touched very much. I tried to halter train him, but he is a very large llama and at 3 years, he was already about 350 lbs. It's a two person job to try to get a halter on him and he is able to drag me around the pasture with ease. Anyway, my husband and I can manage him to give him medication, his vaccination and toenail care although it's always an exciting task. I halter train all my alpacas to make it easy to manage them for care and transport.
Daewoo's ears must have been frostbit when he was at his previous farm. He's also not a very well conformed llama. I don't think he'll live the full life expectancy of 18-20 years and I keep an eye on his eathing and his gait for signs of pain. For now, he eats well and gets lots of exercise so he's fine.
Frankie and Daewoo were gelded when they were brought to the farm (otherwise, they could have impregnated my alpacas which would produce an animal with undesirable fibre). They are sentinel guards of my herd - meaning that they are the first to see something in the fields and signal with an alarm to the others. When they are in action - these llamas, which probably go about 500-600lbs each - look quite formidable...tails up, back arched, chests out, ears back. We usually put them in a pasture with the weanling males so that they bond with the little guys. It usually works so that, by the time we put the little guys into the main boys area, the llamas take quick action against any big boy that wants to bully the little guy. I think they earn their keep.
