    Pigeons, pigeons LLAMA! YES! Awwww, what a cute llama. :-)

    Your pictures are terrific. I really enjoy them.

    @Charly, #3: that’s called a halter, and it’s used for leading the animal when it’s out of the pasture. (A harness is used for pulling a cart, and goes around the animal’s chest, around the body, and around the hindquarters.) It’s hard to tell, but it’s possible the lead rope on the halter is behind the neck where we can’t see it from this angle. The reason I think this is because there is a metal ring at the bottom center of the halter, under the animal’s chin, and I don’t see it… so possibly, the lead rope is pulling it off to the side.

    The llama, which made very little drama, is wearing a halter because we went llama trekking. It’s something our Zoo offers. You go on a 10 km hike with two llamas and the participants can lead the llamas. The lead rope is indeed hidden, as the llama is taking a snack.

    When you go out of your way to lead a Lama/llama, who actually leads and who follows? This was your daily zen riddle.

    @Giliell, that sounds really cool! I guess it is good for the llamas, ’cause of boredom and lack of proper movement in the pen, and good for nature loving people as well.
