I forgot to mention that baby llamas are called crias and that there were 2 more - just a few weeks
old - very cute:)
Llamas are very stately and tend to look superior- ly at you.
Contrary to popular belief , well trained ones don't spit (well only the girls and only at each
They have different characters and find their place in the herd accordingly.
Once weaned the young ones choose a mentor from among the older llamas from whom they learn.
Belas Knap has chosen Brodgar, the llama I trekked with last year. He has won various rosettes at county shows but I don't expect Belas Knap knows that!
We will definitely be going back...
Once Malcolm loads his photos I will send you pictures of the new crias.
