|This is stubborn.|
Our first real challenge was a white alpaca that fought and refused to open his mouth. We got the rope toy in his mouth finally then he clamped down and laid down. We could not pry his mouth open. I trimmed all his toes with him laying there by the gate. After 20 min his jaw got tired and we worked the big thick rubber bone into his mouth. His fighting teeth were so sharp they cut 1/4 inch deep gashes into the rubber. We finished five animals. Those five, three white alpaca and two black were placed back in the orchard. The professional victim went back to his private pen but he slipped between the wires again after an hour. The weird part is none of the other four alpaca are picking on him. I suspect that will change when we add back the other three that need to be sheared. Its funny how the dynamics change when certain personalities are placed together. We spent the last 1.5 hours hauling gravel to the back deck/garden area and installing some more brick walls to keep a nice line between dirt and gravel.
