affectionate with the ewes and their babies. At lambing time he
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.
At night the llama would patrol the fenced in meadow and would mark every post as a warning to predators to stay away.
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.
