We are now Lazy Goat Acres
After many years of training Llamas and doing Llama and Alpaca rescue we have shifted our focus toward the goat side of our farm. Debra makes soap using milk from our goats and spins yarn with fiber from our Shetland sheep. We have rehomed our last llama and last three alpacas. We do still have a lot of fiber from the llama's and alpaca's that Deb is working on getting spun into yarn as well as spinning yarn from the sheep wool.
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.
