New Llama girl

Postby Farmboy » Sat Dec 06, 2008 11:17 pm

I just got my first llama. She is a 2 year old red female. I think I am going to name her Lola or Elle. She is lead rope trained and she has not spit on anyone yet, not even in the loading process, which she did NOT like. I will try to get pics up later.

Thanks thats what we decide to name her Lola the Llama. Yesterday while feeding she was eating out of the bucket, and we were playing with her and stuff, and our mini horse came up and she just spit all of this chewed up grain all over the horse. TWO TIMES! She will get along with the goats, mini cows, pigs,chickens, and even the dogs, but if the horse comes around it's war!

Too funny!! I wonder what she sees in the horse? I think they'll have a lot of fun together. Have you got any pics already? I've seen some Llamas and Alpacas here in Australia,mainly at the east coast, they make a fine pet,I think. ( I'm not quite sure about the difference of those two)

Alpacas are smaller.

She probably sees the horse as a rival and was protecting her food. Llamas generally only spit on each other to establish superiority, to aid in stealing food, show anger or frustration, or as a defense. Females often "spit off" aggressive males. It's called spitting only because that is the way it appears to be ejected from the llama's mouth. The accompanying sound is more like that of coughing. Although the term suggests saliva, llama spit is actually partially digested stomach contents.

Thanks.I have not got any pics yet, but I plan to get some soon. I was going to get them today, but we had extremely bad weather and a tornado watch. Actualy a small tornado touched down about 6 miles from my house, but it did minimal damage.

Congrats! I love llamas. You were very lucky that the tornado didn't come your way.
