This blog is for Kendra, who asked for more information about llamas and alpacas and for the rest of you who might want some of your own. You can adopt your llamas and alpacas.
Last week, we talked about where llamas and alpacas came from. According to the International Lama Registry there are 163,131 llamas in the United States and the Alpaca Registry says there are 167,802 alpacas, too. Lamas are popular nowadays!
Do you have llamas or alpacas on your farm? We do! Our llama is a pretty, spotted male named Bandit. He likes horses and lives with our granny Standardbred, Maire. They are good friends.
Llamas are a versatile animal. Widely used as guardian animals and fleece producers, llamas may also be used as show animals, pack and cart animals, animal-assisted therapy workers and as pets.
