    They make buck shields to prevent stud goats from breeding.
    Has anyone made one for their llama/alpaca?
    With their narrow hips, I'm thinking they would need a collar and back strap to keep it from coming off?
    They pee backwards, so getting dirty, that's no issue. And worn only 3-4mo.
    I'm thinking it should be more sideburn shaped, as in having it start along the sides, so it is more broad and less ability to push aside.
    Obviously a thick, stiff, but bendable fabric.

    The pacas follow sheep far better than my dogs do and they aren't horrible barking rats that eat everything....I'm kind of sick of it. I never liked dogs, other than a well behaved house pet.

    Things need to change.

    Maybe I should find two female llamas instead?

    Is this time period related or you just don't want the macho intact at all?

    What do you mean?

    Anything with a willy around ewes can cause a problem and I don't want those near my girls. If that's what you meant.



    It seems the dogs did better with just the two, M/F pair. But they(sheep) were also kept close to home. =/
