Puttin' Your Llama to Work . . . Your Llama
May Surprise You.
Most people think of llamas as livestock guardians or as the traditional pack animal of the Andean Indians; however, the llama is a versatile and wonderful animal to work with. Intelligent and able to learn quickly, llamas can be trained using methods similar to horses-- to pull carts and sleds. They are easier to handle and maintain than a horse due to their smaller size. With a little common sense, gentle persuasion, and knowledge you too can train your Llama to work for you.
