OK here's the deal. I have this llama that does not like to get left behind when I go to have fun. It takes out its frustration in a very goat way - - i.e. - clambering on the roof of every vehicle in the driveway and pooping on it.
Darned thing loves to get on the trails and run though. Llamas and trails . . . I guess it's that old packer instink or somethin. But it's got me to wondering: leash laws are for the doggies and wandering toddlers; and, well, technically a llama is livestock, so I don't see as to where leash laws really apply.
Then again, if I had a leash, it could tow me back to the trail head when I got 5 miles out, no beer left in the fanny pack and I'm just plum tuckered out. But there's another problem too: llamas go where they want - - kinda like deer - - only their poops are more like elk-size pellets. It's a pain to pick 'em all up even with the missus' big wooden chili-stirrin' spoon; and you can kinda kick 'em off the trail like marbles, but you know that when a family with kids comes hikin' along that, well, they look just like big tasty chocklit drops to the tykes and . . . well, you get the idea.
So what do you say? Llama or no llama on the trails?
