Interested in a guardian llama?
Since most of our llamas now are either elderly or have special needs, we are not offering any for sale as guardians.
However, many of our llamas have gone on to successfully guard sheep, goats, and alpacas.
We keep several sheep to check out which of the llamas show those guarding instincts.
Most llamas do not naturally guard until they are adults of 2-3 years. Until then, they enjoy being youngsters and leave the work to the grown-ups!
We do not guarantee guarding ability but will gladly work with you if you think the animal is not doing the job. Guardians can be geldings or females ( or one of each!) however we do not recommend intact males. Many of our past clients have found two llamas will guard as well as one and the llamas are happier this way. Also - when weaning time comes - no need to make a decision on which group has the protection - just send a llama with each!
