Melvin the llama arrived here in July 2009 having been rescued by friends of ours along with a few other llamas. When the tranquilliser that had obviously been administered to Melvin wore off his new owners discovered to their dismay that Melvin viciously attacked other llamas.

They immediately had him castrated and his fighting teeth removed but it made no difference, he continued to attack. In desperation we were contacted and as Melvin was happy to run with sheep, cattle and horses we agreed to take him.

Melvin does not “do” people, we may hold a bucket of feed for him to eat from but we may not catch him, he has that wonderful llama way of looking down his nose at you and the look says it all. He is happiest running with the sheep though sometimes he seeks a change and then moves in with the cattle for a while.
