My husband and I are recently retired (in our 60′s) and we are discussing ways to reduce the fire hazard in our neighborhood. In 2007 our backyard in Poway burned off in the big Witch Creek fire in San Diego County. We have been researching Llamas. Our lot is almost an acre in size and is pie shaped so the backyard is very large. Adjoining our lot is a large open space area which is covered by native chaparral. It is growing back at an alarming rate. We have read a research paper produced by University of California Davis that recommended that browsing animals such as goats or Llamas be pastured on these hilly areas because they do not destroy the habitat but do reduce the fuel load for enhanced fire protection. We have the space and the free time to look after a couple of Llamas. We’re home all the time and enjoy animals. The open space area behind our lot is home to a family of coyotes, and so we have ruled out keeping goats for fear that they will fall prey to them. I have talked to Llama owners however who say that adult Llamas are not in danger from coyotes. Can you tell us if there are older gelded males available that may be good companions for each other and would be happy in our back yard?
