Fun Farm Fact Friday… April 10th

It’s time for a fun farm fact from one of our other farm animals… Our llamas!

Llamas are in the same family with camels, so they share many similarities. One of these similarities is their tendency to spit when irritated. However it is rarely at their caretakers, more often than not it is at the other llamas around them. We have had them spit at us on occasion if we are messing with them, for vaccinations or hoof trimming, and they wanted to be left alone, but it doesn’t happen often. They generally give you plenty of warning before spitting, throwing their head back and making a gurgling sound as they pull up there cud, as if to say “back off!”
