Arlos

Arlos

Arlos is part of a trio of llamas, along with Astro and Tanner, who had previously been used as pack animals and were going to be auctioned off for slaughter when they grew too old and infirm to carry out their ardous jobs. Fortunately, a man took pity on the three llamas and rescued them before they could be auctioned off. Fellow MFS llamas Milkweed and Pedro had actually been rescued from the same auction a few years previously, and the lucky trio soon joined them.

Today, Arlos is around 20 years old. Guests on MFS tours often encounter him sitting just outside the lower goat barn, sometimes preventing people from passing until he is ready to move! Visitors can also recognize Arlos by his distinct beautiful black and white coat.
