Guarding Too Well

Meet Tamarin, our guard llama. He runs with the sheep to prevent loss of life due to stray dogs, coyotes or foxes. Until now, we can't complain about his work ethic. 

But lately we've suspected that Tamarin has been guarding our sheep too well. Recently we put the rams in with the Suffolk ewes. Tamarin doesn't seem to appreciate these newly introduced intruders. We've seen a lot of chasing, of late. Tonight, we cornered and caught Tamarin, and put him in with the Polypay ewes (who are due to receive their suitors later this fall).  

Never a dull moment on the farm...
