Freckles is a male llama. Llamas are shorn every other year for their fiber. Llamas come in an array of colors and often produce beautiful fiber. The only time a Llama spits is usually at another animal over matters of food. Llamas will rarely spit at a human. Llamas usually go to the bathroom in the same spot, making it very easy to clean up after them.
