Neighbors like ours can't be beat. It was my pleasure to take time out, make these guys a special dessert, and to deliver them. And with help from Weston, it was even more fun!
This is our gelding, Harley, who is giving one of our friends an idea of what it is like to ride a Llama. Most of the time Llamas are merely pack animals which can carry 25%-30% of their weight. However, Harley here is rather cooperative having no problem with the light weight of his temporary cargo. After some reading, I am learning that it is the males who were the workers, while the females remained in their pasture bearing and caring for young. In the Andean culture, if a male was not a good worker/pack animal, he landed on the dinner table. To this day, males are the best choice for learning to walk and pack with you. Harley is a good example of that.
