The guardians

We rely heavily on guard animals to keep our herd safe.  With a large herd we depend on many guards.  This way they are protected at all times no matter if everyone is in the barn, out on pasture or a mix of both.

Our herd protectors consist of two livestock guardian dogs (lgd's), two mini donkeys and one guard llama.  each of these animals work in different ways to keep the herd safe around the clock.
