Hi Llama!

Well thats certainly a different pet? So does it go in the house or do you have a barn for him/her?

Whats it's name?

Do you ride them?

Hmm this is pretty cool!

Hi Amaruq!

My Llama's name is "PomPom". Yes he does occasionaly come in the house for fun, but does not reside permenently there! He lives in the barn with our 5 horses, whom by the he loves very much, along with our geese, duck, sheep and dog! He loves to play with his "friends" , and they love playing with him. Llamas are very clean, since they will do their "business " only in one spot basically, for him it.s in his stall. He won.t go anywhere else, l take him to different events such as parades, nursing homes, schools as a zootherapy animal. He loves people and visits. He.s a very special and affectionate animal. The fact that he.s so clean makes it easy for me to take him places.

Okay guys you all want a laugh so here it is!!!!

A few years ago, while with my parents at a local garden centre shopping for a Christmas Tree....I decided to visit their petting zoo area. Yes they had it set up for Christmas..stupid idea!

Anyway, deer, rabbits, sheep and yup a Llama!

I did the oogle google thing and kissy noises to the animals as we all do. The last stable was the Llama!

It looked nice enough, really it did!

I walked up to it, there was nobody else around and quite honestly I don't know what I did to pizz him off but I did.

He hauled back his lips, reared his head backwards and let out of his mouth at the speed of sound the biggest nasty gob of gunk you could imagine.

I had no time to move, it was that fast.

The mess of gob came right toward me, landing smack in the middle of my face. It was all over me!! AND it stunk sooooo bad it was the worst smell I have ever come by other then skunk.

I ran to my dad...he always had those man hankies...and he laughed his azz off as he gave it to me. I used it to get the most of the slimey gob off my face but it was sticky, stinky and a LOT of it!

I ran outside and washed my face in the snow.

I stunk so bad I couldnt' stand the smell of myself.

As we drove home, there I was hanging my head out the window to get fresh air so I wouldn't gag and vomit in the car (thank gosh we're only 10 mins from that place)

Eventually after washing my face and mouth and hair SEVERAL times with EVERYTHING in the house the smell faded!


So THAT is why they refer to me as Llama Luba ;)

No, it was.nt PomPom, he has'nt reached that fame yet!! I think the Llama you are referring to is Charlie the Llama. The owners are the Stillwells. Very nice people we actually chat a few times a week!

Poor Luba! To get spit at in this manner! Yes it can smell quite a bit! PomPom obviously can spit, but will do it only if provoked very badly. e.g. somebody trying to pull at his tail, or push him around, or poke him! That he does.nt like! (Neither do i for that matter) He has been taught to be polite at all times! If i see that he is stressed by a situation, i walk him away , and relax him a few minutes! I.m with him at all times, and i don.t let people poke him, (yes, some might just to get him mad!) I find that having Llamas in a petting zoo is terrible, they get really stressed out. Llamas don.t like to be proded and poked and they don.t like eye contact. To them it.s a challenge! If you looked at the Llama in the eye directely for him it was a challenge, that.s why he put his ears down (he was warning you!!!) since u did.nt know what he meant, he then resorted to spitting! By the way they don.t like spitting because the aftertaste stays in their mouth for an hour after and it.s not pleasant at all to them to have that taste in their mouth! They usually look for something to chew after they spit to take taste out of their mouth!
