Why llama’s spit….

2013 January 30

There are many misconceptions about llama spitting.  It’s a social behavior that is often exaggerated for reasons we as an organization dedicated to llama health and welfare don’t quite understand.


Here’s what you should know:
·       When properly raised in a healthy herd environment, it is rare for a llama to spit at a person.  We see it when the llama was handled excessively during its first two years of development – petting, hugging, bottle feeding, or over-handling.  Also when a llama is restrained during veterinary exams, where the animal is unable to flee, spitting may occur as a stress and defense mechanism.

·       Spit happens between llamas to establish pecking order, when a llama is encroaching on another llama’s space, or when they’re having a quarrel.  A llama’s social status in the herd is ever-shifting. When feeding llamas, it’s recommended to have a least one hay-feeding station more than the number in the herd.   Some will share, but having an extra feeding station gives them an ability to establish a personal space; thereby, lessening the potential for conflict.

·       Llama spit is nasty; and as shown in the photo, it’s not a pleasant taste or smell for the llama sending or receiving.  It’s basically regurgitated hay – green and wet – up from their three stomach compartments.

Phantom has a new home

This past Saturday, volunteers drove Phantom to his new home in Wickenburg, AZ.  Arizona Llama Rescue will place only one llama if the adoptive home already has a llama, because of their social need to be a part of a herd – even if it’s only a herd of two.  In this case, Phantom will have a lot of company with a llama, alpacas, and horses.  The new owners reported on Sunday that Phantom is shy, but is getting to know his new family and hasn’t missed a meal.

Three coyotes visited our Snowflake, AZ, facility this morning just before sunrise.  This one posed briefly before running off.  With our herd of llamas standing watch, the coyotes posed no threat to our sheep, goats, alpacas, and chickens.

” Queen Creek residents Dave Salge and Alicia Santiago have their hands full with nine    rescued llamas in addition to four of their own, as part of the Arizona Llama Rescue, a non  -profit they founded. “A lot of older people get into llamas and alpacas and eventually they go into nursing homes or pass away” Santiago said. “A majority come from those situations…”

Dave’s adventure with Lakota

2010 February 23

It wasn’t the best day to travel; but Kathy Lohr was very excited to meet Lakota and welcome him to his new home in Mayer, Arizona.

Lakota has a new home!

I hit my first snow between Camp Verde and Strawberry, and then as I started up the Mogollon towards Forest Lakes and Heber found the 4-wheel-drive a necessity with snow and wind staying with me all the way to Snowflake.

Traveling with me today from Queen Creek to Snowflake was our recent alpaca surrender – Bandit (a.k.a. Norman).  He also seemed happy with his new space; flirting with the girls and running through the snow along the guy’s fence line.  We’ll start working on his some of his social inadequacies after he gets acclimated.

Nash  had been weathering the storm all afternoon and wasn’t too excited about his new roommate.
