travelling llamas
« on: May 07, 2013, 04:52:15 pm »
some advice required please!

we are travelling 2 llamas from the IOW to Ayrshire, in a horsebox. should i keep the partition in and tether them, or take it out and let them be free in the box?
i don't think the are halter broken, which poses a problem......

what do you think?


thank you!

Hi,
I just transported 2 alpacas, I was told to take the partition out and leave them loose, apparently they will just lie down, I would assume that Llamas would be very similar.
Good luck it sounds like a long journey ahead for you.
Regards
