    Is it overly complicated to halter train llamas?
    Sometime this week we are picking up two female llamas. One i know is 8, the other is a alpaca/llama X and i'm not sure her age, i'm assuming she's 8 or younger too. Would it be difficult to train them at this age? They've never had a halter on before (to my knowledge at least), would it be dangerous? and what are some tips or things i should know before i start?

    No, it isn't hard. I would suggest CameliDynamics by Marty McGee Bennett. That is a great way to train llamas and alpacas.
