May I present to you a Guard Llama. Interesting story to that one – you see, fainting goats were bred specifically for the fainting trait, and would be put into pastures along with more valuable livestock so that when a predator approached, the goat would faint and be easy prey for the predator to occupy him so that the threat could be dealt with without a greater loss to the herd. Unfortunately, the goats can’t really live on their own, so llamas were trained to guard the goats – that way if they did their fainting thing when a predator came they would have some protection against the whole group of goats being slaughtered. Thus, guard llamas.
