Having problems with one of my babies!

Well... rather my mare's baby! However he is one of the strangest babies you have seen! He has fuzzy wool, a long, long neck, long skinny legs, the sauciest expression you have ever seen and he can SPIT!!! Have you figured it out? Yes, my Berdi's baby is a LLAMA!

And they can't be seperated! Berdi is sure that Sasha (the llama) is going to melt if she can't see him every single minute. She's fine on our rides but don't anyone dare to put them in different pens. She will throw a temper tantrum - pacing, neighing frantically and generally going bonkers!

For winter I will be stalling Berdi at night in our shelter. It is huge, so it can easily accomodate Sasha too. IF he will be accomodated! I have three ropes seperating the two areas and they can see each other and touch noses. Berdi is perfectly content being stalled, and respects fences, ropes, or anything else very well, but Sasha is another story! In minutes he dived right through the ropes and was trying to eat Berdi's hay. Which she hotly protested too as she loves her food.

So on to plan B. I'm thinking of make an actual divider and put up slats that are so close and so high that he cannot possibly get through! Any suggestions on how to get a llama that hates being confined accustomed to it? Keep in mind that this is the same llama that when I first got him he leaped almost 6 feet to get out of a corral and that was from a standstill!

And now.... here is a picture of "the brat!"
