I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
As an alpaca and llama breeder here in northern Arizona, I can attest to a few of the suppositions of this posting. Alpacas do sometimes listen to human commands and their fleece is extremely soft! However, some llamas have soft fleece too and are also even-tempered, but not always when drunk. They are, however, very judgmental-looking, so they CAN get the “will kill you the first chance it gets” look.
