Karin, the other llama on the farm, is left alone and lonely. Llamas need to be together once they are bonded. Karin was born on the farm, the daughter of Joyce, and is only two years old. She is a delightful creature, friendly and loving and very pretty. She pined away for her mates at the gate of the pen long after she could no longer see the trailer. Then I fed her and for a while, all was forgotten as she munched her extra ration of alfalfa. Soon, another llama is coming to the farm, a little Suri female cria, about the same age as Audrey. Suri llamas have ringlets of very fine fibre and the new young cria was actually born on my birthday. Kariin and the new baby will stay on the farm provided they bond and get along well together.
Llamas can be very good protectors of sheep and goats, but these girls had never had to protect any sheep at all. With the big livestock guardians, they did not get a chance to even consider protecting, so I don't know how they would be if they were actually confronted with a coyote. I am quite sure that Karin will protect the baby llama though, just through instinct.
Thank you Lucy. You introduced me to llamas and you were loved and appreciated on the farm. Bless you and your baby girl in your new home. May everyone be happy.
