Over coming months I plan to draft a virtual book entitled A Brief Guide to Llamas and Llama Husbandry.

As sections are drafted I plan to update through hyperlinks to relevant sections.

Originally, my plan had been to encourage collaborative involvement of fellow members of the BLS but given the lack of interest welcome any individual to comment, contribute, etc.
