Help keep llamas healthy an happy

Llamas

Llamas, like Alexa and Summer Wind, are very social animals and live with other llamas as a herd. They are intelligent, inquisitive, and can learn simple tasks after just a few repetitions. The wool produced by a llama is very soft, versatile, and lanolin-free and, each Spring, Green Chimneys students help sheer our llamas and the wool is made into yarn which is for sale at our country store!  Llamas eat grass, hay, corn silage, alfalfa, and grass roots, and adults can drink 3 gallons of water a day.
