Llamas - Page 2

post #11 of 18

The only issue I have heard from folks in the north and really cold areas is the llamas having frost bite and losing their ears.  I am not sure how that is prevented but otherwise, I think with some shelter from the worst of the elements, they do quite well. 


Heat is our enemy here so sheering is a must. 


Here are mine.



The girls:  Sonora, Flaming Star, Shaboom, and Ladyhawke.


The boys: Poteau and Denalli. 


Denalli is the only one we have had born here so we got to name him.  Guess where the name is from?  Had to change the spelling a bit as it has been used for others.

They are beautiful animals. Our goats suffered frostbit ears but it doesn't seem to bother them at all.

I have heard of llamas completely loosing their ears due to frost bite.  I don't know what the precautions are for that as it isn't an issue here.

I haven't found any precautions for our goats. Talking with other goat owners it appears they all have the same problem.

Here is the gang! 6 female and 2 young boys. All good. They have adjusted very quickly to their new home 😀
