opportunity has arisen for my husband quite suddenly to
retire and following a quick sale we are moving hastily
from our home here in Kerry to Guernsey where we will have
only a small garden and wonder if you could help us find a
home for our gelding 'Cisco' together with six pet Jacob
sheep. They really do need to go together. We acquired
Cisco about ten years or so ago. We think he was three or
four at the time and he had never been handled. The owner
told us he was too old to train but within a few months he
was haltering and leading happily and it was not long
before we succeeded getting him to carry bales of hay and
implements for us!. We kept him separate from the sheep at
that time not knowing if they would get on and knowing
nothing about llamas as sheep guards. One day some years
ago, however, we saw him pacing up and down the fence
desperate to get into the sheep's paddock. When I went to
investigate I saw a fox emerging from among the sheep (two
dead lambs). I let Cisco into the paddock curious to see
what would happen and he charged after the fox like I've
never seen. He did not catch it, but he stayed in with the
Jacobs after that and we never lost a lamb since! At some
stage Cisco injured his leg and he does have a bit of a
limp. I do not think he would work as a guard anymore but
he and the Jacobs (not the original ones) are inseparable.
We are very concerned to find the right home for

fascinating and very helpful! Well done!
My mother has a llama in almost identical circumstances to those you
describe in your introduction: One of her two greatly loved llamas, Libby,
died a few weeks ago leaving her companion of some fifteen years, Lily,
completely alone. My mother who is no longer young really cannot start
afresh with another llama and I live in London! Lily has never been bred
and we feel she is too old now to go with an active male. So I wonder
whether you know of anyone who might take on Lily and give her a
good home with another llama mare or gelding? Thank you so much for

Hello, I wonder if you can help? I have a
twelve year old female llama with a bad abscess in the bone of her jaw. My vet says she is
too old to operate and we've tried every antibiotic with no success of eliminating it.
Unfortunately I cannot look after her properly because I am away a lot. Would someone like
to have her at no charge providing they are prepared to bathe and clean her abscess
WITH GRATEFUL THANKS TO
DEREK & TOM
|Thank you so much for making this opportunity available. I have had a pair
of llamas for about six years. I gelded the male because although absolutely fine with
people he did not like other llamas and would attack them: females, babies, whatever...
once gelded he calmed down and was fine with my female but sadly she passed away recently.
I bought a ten month old male to go with him but despite being gelding some years ago he
still behaved like a stud and attacked the young male. He is fine with children, dogs etc
and leads o.k, and is very handsome (he would have been a fabulous stud looks-wise) but
needs to go to a home with another female that is not being bred or...????.
