Hello again

Actually I "aint Maggie" but Terry Crofoot, Tim's superior half. I cant get this Forum to accept me as Terry. Discrimination for you! Thanks, Robert, for your reply to the foot question.
Two of my seven llamas give clumps of beans rather than the expected individual pellets. Occasionally there is "slime" on the clump. All my llamas appear fit and well however. Has anybody else noticed this?

llama beans

One of ours always produces largish clumps and a couple of the others less so. The rest produce beans. We also see slime occasionally, but I think this is a Spring time thing. Rich grass is probably the reason. I reckon it's unusual behaviour which is worth noting and regular clumping and annual sliminess don't bother us overly.
Best wishes,
Robert

I too, have noticed this phenomenum in the field. Tends to be from one or two animals each year, around the time they switch from a mainly hay to a mainly grass diet. They never seem to loose condition, and have had it tested by vet - expensive and test results all came back negative.

Slime

Post  Champion on Mon Nov 16, 2009 3:07 pm

Yes, I've seen clumps and slime from time to time too. My vet said a little is ok but it shouldn't be excessive. I was wondering if the slime was an indication of needing to worm, since the last time I had the dung tested due to slime (Easter) there were few eggs but a couple of live worms and the slime is now reappearing and it's about time to worm again.

I have noticed several of my llamas tend to produce clumps rather than individual beans and I think it is my boys rather than my girls! It certainly appears more when I use hard foods (concentrates).
