would check every pen with its mom and baby and would "kiss" each of them on the head before carrying on to the next one. So sweet.

Llamas usually only bond with one human and if threatened could disembowel a person or animal. Huge signs were placed around the pasture warning people not to approach the llama.

When the farm had to be sold the sheep and llama went as a package. However, there was a separate price for each. Happily the beasties got to stay together.
