I personally really like donkeys and mules, but my lady insists she would rather have an alpaca or a llama as a guard animal. We are still looking for the larger area of land we will purchase, so the decision isn't pressing, but does anyone have any input with regards to their personal preference and why? I'm very much an animal person, so I'm sure I would be happy adding any of these animals to our rag-tag bunch.

Did you ever write these books?

Take a great pic, reduce the size of the pic to 700 pixels wide and post it to permies. Post the high res pic out at a stock photography site. Put a link to all of your pics at the stock photography site in your permies.com signature. Repeat daily for a month.
Now you will probably earn about $400 per year. So over the next ten years, you will have earned about $4000 - or $133 per picture.
Now do stuff with your picture to make it easier to find. Rather than the name of the pic being 10000045602.jpg, change the name to beautiful-rocket-mass-heater.jpg and set the description for the pic to "a beautiful rocket mass heater I saw in oregon". And then the text that goes with the post talks about it. And, of course, it appears in a thread about beautiful rocket mass heaters.
Now you earn $1000 per year on those images, or $333 per picture.
Now go to a few other forums and do it with the same pictures and you are getting more than $500 per picture.
Now do this for a full year and discover that you are getting $800 per picture over a ten year span of time. $2500 per month comes in and you don't do anything more. It is all on autopilot.
And if you stop posting pics, that money just keeps coming in year after year.

Today I got another email from somebody that wants to pay for a high res pic they saw here on permies.
