BTW, Wallaby -- I've followed your llama tales a bit. Very interesting and entertaining! Next thing you know, you'll be riding that girl! :)

I don't have any experience with Llama's. But my mini Donkey Is great, not only is he a pasture pet, he is the best alarm in the world (can be heard up to a mile away) He guards the pasture And will flat put the run on any creature that dares go in the pasture. He is a little love bug and loves people and children and even likes playing with are dogs. I think a good little donkey would be a great companion animal for your horse.

I haven't had any problems with my four alpaca boys mixing with the two mares, but I have to say that the alpacas are not the most loving, friendly creatures out there! Don't expect alpacas or llamas to run up to you and want to be loved. They do eat plants which the horses won't, so they are good for keeping the pasture grazed evenly.

That's why.
Intact males anywhere within sight or sound of female alpacas = different story!
Gelded male alpacas rarely fuss, and usually is it the females on an alpaca farm that are the freest with their slimey "opinions."

And yes you are right on the grazing. As quasi ruminants and browsers, they are very valuable for different grazing situations, especially rotational grazing.
