Rory, pictured, is one of our best packers, but even he can get hurt on the trail. He bruised the pad of his foot*, and had a slow limping hike back to the truck. Once at home, he went on stall rest, and got to soak his foot in epsom salts. He rather enjoyed it, being in the barn, surrounded by girls, and he really didn't mind the foot-soak. One of the many reasons llamas make such great pack animals is their soft padded feet (see below) They make very little impact on-trail or off.
*Llamas have soft padded feet.
