Llama Lady can clarify but from everything I've read (which isn't much)
the spitting is exagerated. I've read that they only spit at each other
and I believe that is either when a female is involved (two males
fighting over her) or over food.

I like the prospect of goats but if their not allowed on the entire
trail then... I wonder which animal would have more stamina for the 
long trek.
