Basher the goat and Tug our young llama get castrated!

Today was Tug’s big day! He has been mounting any llama that would keep still long enough to for a while now so we knew it was time he had the chop!
It was very stressful trying to fool the llamas that tody was a normal day and they were suspicious the moment we put them in the stables instead of letting them down the back field. Tug caused a bit of concern because he was only given a small amount of sedative and within minutes he was on the floor in a deep sleep. The operation went well though and the only concern seemed to be his reluctance to wake up but he did and all was well. Having this done means that he will be able to run with the herd and not be a problem to them.

Basher has been castrated today too! We figured he has had his fun since he has been here and we do not want anymore babies. We are hoping it might calm him down a little.. Well it’s worth a try!
