ELVIS though not an official rescue came from a farm that was using him as a guard llama for a small goat herd. He apparently was good at the job but they had no idea what was required on their part to keep him healthy and properly cared for. ELVIS was about three when I met him this last fall. He had never been haltered or trained in any way other than his natural instincts. Needless to say his first experience with a halter and lead was a challenge for both of use. Haltering and loading into the trailer was close to three hours. ELVIS still needs a little more grooming work to get out the rest of his mattes and burrs but is well on his way to becoming a fine looking Llama. He carries himself well and has a proud stance. I am working to find his parents and hope to get him registered. He now loves attention and will eat from your hands. ELVIS will make someone a great pet or guard llama. Prior to leaving the farm his grooming will be completed, his fighting teeth will be cared for, and if purchased prior to our spring shearing party I will include a free shearing either at my farm or yours if within a two hour drive. Sorry but His birth farm can't find his records so he can't be registered. However ELVIS is getting quite used to his handling and seems to now enjoy his grooming sessions.
