He looks like hes about to put a loogie right between your eyes. 

Ive only ever been spit on once and that was me getting caught in some crossfire, lol. If you get spit on you've ignored about 20 warnings.

 

When I first got these guys they came from a larger herd. All of a sudden it's just those four so they needed to work out the new herd dynamic. After a couple days of fighting with another one jesse came out on top 


RIP Jesse.  How does it work now that Jesse is no longer the herd leader?  The remaining 3 have a spit-off to see who takes the throne?

Something like that. It'll probably be the one he fought with initially.

They have"fights" teeth that you have to cut out. In the wild that's their weapon. They go for the junk and the neck. They can kill each other fairly easily (bleed out). But without the those two teeth they pretty much just noodle neck and spit alot.

I forgot they bit each others nuts off.

Was his passing due to natural causes or was he harvested for something? Is llama good meat to eat?

He was alot older than we thought this whole time. I thought he was 9 but vet said more like 17. He didn't winter well, lost a ton of weight and slowly stopped moving around. Hasn't been able to get up last couple of days, probably lost 70lbs. It was time. I started spring with him knowing he wouldn't survive winter. 

 

I have eaten llama, it's alot like goat. I can't eat my buddy, and he'd be gross anyway. I'd have no problem eating the one that's probably going to take over as leader. He's a fucking dick, lol.

Mountain, your story makes me want to get one someday. I've always liked them and would like to go on a long trek with one.

In the meantime, you can simulate this experience in Minecraft.  I have 4 of them that I set up as a caravan and equip with packs to hull stuff around.

I'm sure it's almost as rewarding as the real deal. ;)

When I first got these guys they came from a larger herd. All of a sudden it's just those four so they needed to work out the new herd dynamic. After a couple days of fighting with another one jesse came out on top and was running the pasture. He got cocky though and was being pushy with me. Real pushy.

So I took the advice of an older llama packer who said "you have to be the baddest llama there. Get a super soaker and next time he gets uppity give him a good squirt. You'll be the best spitter they've ever seen"

Sure enough, next day he was trying to crowd me for food and from about a foot away I unloaded the entire super soaker in his face. Took like 30 seconds and he just stood there and took it. Then he walked over to the other side of the pasture and pouted/thought about it for a couple hours.

After that he was the best guy ever. Gentle, loyal, super easy to work with. He would regulate the others if they acted up so I didn't have to.

Great story.  Made me laugh
