Llovely Banks we have 3 Llama Workshops available.
Llama Carting Clinics ...and
Llama Open Days.
The Introduction to Llamas Workshop
is designed for beginners, and provides participants with
the opportunity to meet and learn about llamas whilst mingling
with our herd of more than 50 animals. To ensure individual
needs are met, Workshop group numbers are limited. Attendees
learn where to start and what to expect. The atmosphere
is informal with ample opportunity to handle the animals,
ask questions and take photos.
covered in Introduction to Llamas include:
Your First Llama
and much more!
Introduction to Llamas' Workshop runs for 6 hours allowing
plenty of time for participants to observe, handle and learn
about these gentle creatures in their home territory. Each
participant receives a copy of our booklet "An Introduction
to Llamas" and morning tea and lunch is provided.
Our Open Days are free of charge and take
place between 10am and 4pm.
encourage all our visitors to stroll through the llama
areas ... alone or accompanied ... giving them the opportunity
to interact with the animals for however long they choose.
display showing different llama uses and a range of llama
related equipment is set up and complimentary tea and coffee
is available throughout the day.
attending our Open Days we make just one request.
Please remember the importance of leaving each gate as you
find it. If a gate is open - leave it open ... and if a
gate is closed, keep it closed. The last thing we need is
unwanted llama pregnancies.
At Carting Clinics we aim to have each untrained
group of llamas working together as a team by the clinic's
end. We begin by familiarising attendees with harnesswear
and driving equipment before we move into the training.
Attendees who own llamas are encouraged to bring their untrained
llamas along so we may introduce each to cart and harness.
not unusual to have llamas ... with no previous harness
experience ... quite comfortable with the harness and cart
by the end of a clinic. We begin by training them in pairs
or triples ...but never in single-harness. Our carts are
designed with adjustable shafts so may be driven with one,
two or three llamas. Llama carting clinics run for 6 hours.
Morning tea and lunch is included.
