what can run with alpacas

TNY78(7a-East TN)April 29, 2013

my husband and I recently acquired two alpacas and had a barn built for them. I was wondering what other animals would be able to share their barn and pasture. the alpacas are both male, gelded, 6yrs and 4-yrs old. the barn has two stalls and a 10x10 run in. the property is five acres, and two acres are fenced. I am looking to get one guardian animal (maybe a donkey or mule) and possibly a pot bellied pig or a couple of goats...

thanks for your advice!

I would say goats but I would ask the prior owner if they were exposed to any animals in the past. If they have shown aggression towards other animals you would want to know before putting baby goats in their pens.
