The rift opened...

We were following the footpaths when suddenly the rift opened and the
path went through a field of llamas. They advanced upon us curiously,
and I had a sudden terrifying mental image of a llama version of the
Pamploma bull run. One of the llamas was truly hideous, it only had one
ear!

Aw... I like the one-eared llama. They do look rather more in the way of recently-shorn alpacas though. Llama's ears curve inwards over their heads (known as "banana ears"), alpacas are a little under a metre tall at the withers whilst llamas average twice that. Can't figure out how close they are to that fence - what do you reckon? Llamas? Alpacas?

If they are alpacas, they must have liked you - not guard beasts by any means & usually coy with strangers. Very clean & tidy creatures, the alpacas, they choose one bit of their field as a toilet, all use it, & never graze it. Another reason why smallholders like them - makes poo-picking their field much easier. :)

DD said they were alpacas and they weren't very big so you could well be right. Also, they had very recently been shorn. Having once been spat on by a llama I kept my distance. It didn't help that the field before was full of frisky horses.... I like the idea of guard llamas paintist and I have seen geese used as guards.

Top one is priceless. At first from the thumbnail I thought it had a tube on its neck to protect an injury...
