Haha...no goat. Uh uuuuuh, went down that road once before - and found out why the devil is often depicted as being half. It was so bad, my family still asks to hear "the goat stories" at gatherings!!! If one of those horrid beasts (goats) would work..it would be nice, since it would get little of my affection (she stresses over that, too) and I wouldn't even feel guilty. :) But it will be a cold day before I got another!!!!
Llamas just don't seem like they would suit me - but I never knew they stomped snakes...maybe I will look into them!
Thanks for liking my post even though the "like-er" was broken.
I never considered myself a llama person. Ever. Didn't like them.
Whenever I saw them I always asked... "What's the point?....I mean really people... why?"
But when I started with alpacas they were the best thing for guarding the herd. So I grew a pair ( ) and bought two guard llamas. After all, alpacas used to be expensive... the least I could do was tolerate a llama or two for the good of the herd. How bad could it be?
Ha! Fooled me. Their shy inquisitive nature is just endearing! They don't need humans what so ever, so not giving them affection is just fine with them, but they can be very respectful and survive on so little.
They are very self sufficient, easy to care for, and depending on what type of coat they have (their wool [we say fiber] comes in different varieties of thickness and type) you may not need to ever have them sheared. Or like me... learn to hand shear.
And... they are neat to just watch.
I'm still not a "all things llama" type of person, but I do like my own.
