When choosing a name for a llama, we heed the warning that names can often become self-fulfilling prophecies. We wouldn't want to name a llama 'Trouble', or 'Leaper', or 'Spitfire'. The llama pictured above is named Santos, which usually refers to saintly or holy things. In this case, he is pretty much the opposite. In the pasture, he is the one we have to catch first, or he will come after the other llamas, spitting and cursing. (well, it sounds like profanity)
He is a great pack llama, though. Once he is haltered, he knows we aren't going to put up with his nonsense, and he settles down and is fine in the barn and on the trail. Most llamas seem to take their job as pack llamas pretty seriously, and are all business on the trail, and in camp, regardless of how they act in the pasture.
