How long do llamas live? Generally, into their 20s .As llamas age, their joints get creaky, their teeth go missing and grow sharp edges, and even if their teeth are in reasonably good shape, they aren't able to absorb enough nutrition from their food, no matter how much Equine Senior, shredded beet pulp, alfalfa hay, and sweet feed they get to eat. Today, Cheyenne took a rest in the sunshine, and never got back up. Yes, she has rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. She has expired and gone to meet her maker. Bereft of life, she rests in peace. She is an ex-llama.
Cheyenne wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but she was a good kid, and I do miss seeing her waiting for me by the feed room door every day. There's a large and growing herd of dogs, horses, and llamas waiting for me on the other side. I'll probably be killed all over again in the stampede.
