Livestock guardian animals include llamas, donkeys, and several breeds of dogs. At Joybilee Farm, we use both llamas and LDGs to protect our animals and even our children from the bears, cougars, wolves, and coyotes that pass through our 140 acres of forest and wetlands. Then there are the occasional weasels or stouts that decide to take down a chicken — these the dogs chase away or kill outright. And you can tell because the dogs smell like weasel for days. It’s hard to believe that people actually use that scent for perfume – its called “musk”. Give me lavender e.o. instead.
