There is a ranch not far from me that has horses and llamas together and they seem to get a long fine and I've seen other horses live with llamas with no problems. I have also see a horse freak out and run like a monster was after him the first time he seen a llama or a goat so I would keep them separated but able to see one another for a while till they were used to each other before trying to put them together.

Llamas make excelent guard animals because they are very protective of their herd members (even if the herd is a different spieces), so if there are cougars or cyotes around the llama will help keep your horses safe.
