Today was the much over-due Ivermectin shots for the 7 Alpacas and our 1 Llama. These shots need to be done every six weeks as part of a de-worming regement with the "boys". This helps guard them against roundworms, mange mites as well as mengeal worm which can be deadly to both Alpacas and Llamas. It attacks the central nervous system and an affected animal looks like they have rubber bands for legs.
In the picture to the right the boys were very upset
after being "clotheslined" by Tim and myself and then
subjected to the neccesary but I am sure a little
painful Ivermectin shot. Here is "Awan" showing me just what he thinks of us! What an attitude!
