Oh it was SO embarrassing the first time it happened.
We were at a show and i got "volunteered" to pet the llamas as an obstacle for the Public Relations part of the competition" ( Llamas get used a lot as therapy animals. they need to be able to deal with strangers petting them if they are used for that) So Tia spend about an hour, petting about 50 llamas, one after the other.
My eyes swelled up and my nose ran, I broke out in a mild rash and I kept sneezing ( Which startled some of the llamas) And I couldn't LEAVE the ring!
I'm okay if I am out in the open with them and don't handle them too much and if I remember not to rub my nose.
On show day, I take an antihistamine and wear long sleeves. Fortunately, Caitlin is not allergic to the critters.
