Being relatively new to having llamas I wanted to post about the odd behaviour of our llama and see if anyone had any ideas/ input on the situation. As I understand he is a senior citizen as far as llamas go, honestly cannot recall how old I was told that he was, he is gelded ( is that the proper term for llamas? ) As of late I've seen him walk over to the water tank ( we use 2- 5 gal buckets along with a 40 gal tank...the buckets help us keep clean water for everyone as the geese in the pasture cannot get in to bathe. He will dip his feet, one at a time in the buckets, sort of sloshing them around, rarely will he knock them over . Then there are times when he just comes and stands with either both front feet or both rear feet in the tank. Is this a sign of something that in our newness that we don't understand? He's not unfriendly but will not really let us handle him either, he'll come for treats or just to see what we're doing but not let us get too very close. Any thoughts? Ideas?
