Basics with llamas
Teaching them to halter, lead, load, be shorn or brushed out, have their feet trimmed. An obstacle course is available at the venue for hands-on involvement.
Teaching them to carry a pack or pull a cart. Fleece harvesting and marketing. PR work such as rest home visits, school fairs and charity donation collecting. Trekking.
Cared for llamas
Feed, vaccinating and drench requirements. Yards and handling facilities. Finding a camelid savvy vet. Microchip insertion and DNA sampling.
Making more llamas
The golden rule is “if you don’t rescue, don’t breed” Choosing suitable breeding stock, evaluating conformation and adherence to the breed standard. Managing matings, pregnancy, birth and aftercare. Planning for the management of any male progeny.
