Sorry for your loss MM! The cosmos is strange sometimes...I've never given much thought to llamas before but listened to the meateater podcast where they discuss llamas on the way home from work today. I guess Steven Rinellas brother has a few.

I dunno about that in the bigger picture but, in my little circle, it's true.

Is it wrong I’m more upset about Jesse than RBG? I like animals more than people for some reason

RIP buddy

 

the super soaker story had me rolling. just picturing a grown man emptying a supersoaker in a llamas face, just standing there. 

Exactly as silly as you picture it. Neither of us were sure what I was doing.

rhino x2 - Cool animal he looked like a character !

Rip

He had a pretty big personality. If he caught you slipping he'd grab your hat off of your head and start running.

Anytime I did any work down there I had to be careful about where I put stuff cause he'd immediately start messing with things. They are very curious but usually shy. He wasn't shy. 

One time I had my truck in there and I swear I only turned around for a second and all of a sudden he's got my tool belt in his mouth from the floor board of inside my truck and hes swinging it around, nails flying everywhere. Took an hour to find em all. Did the same thing with a box of screws once. He would just follow me around like a big old dog. He would drink PBR out of my hand, lol, and if I opened a can of chew he'd come and try to stick his nose in the can.

 

His favorite thing in the world was grapes.

Do llamas form a bond with their owner? I'm not expecting it to be on the level of a dog but do they recognize you as their owner? Would he act differently when you walked up vs a random person?

Him being so curious reminds me of a couple cows my grandpa had. I'd be out there working and if I turned my head for a second one of them would have one of my tools in it's mouth tossing it around. One of them stole a heavy ass pole saw from me once.

It varies, but generally yes. But is that just recognizing "that's the animal that brings me food"?

Jesse would be not necessarily an outlier but would be on the extreme end of the "Antisocial asshole - Oddly friendly" spectrum. 

Some just don't care about anything but llama stuff, they'll go along to get along.

One of my other boys, noah, was apparently very little when he got to the rescue and was handled a bit too much. So he is very friendly and curious as well. When we got them we were told that noah was very bonded to jesse, that jesse had pretty much taken him under his wing and was his protector. So alot of Jesse's mannerisms rubbed off on noah and he is also a very good boy. Super easy to catch and harness, a dream on the trail- very trusting that I wont take him into bad places, doesn't freak out over downed trees that have to be jumped over. He's so good that if I'm fighting with another one I'll just take Noah out of the string and he'll just fall in back like he's still tied to the string. I don't need to tie him out when camping like the rest of them, he's not leaving his herd or his source of delicious treats (me).
