Gaits of the Llama

Other animals such as camels, elephants, llama, alpacas, giraffes, etc., do variations on amble (tolt) and pace.  Scientists are studying the biomechanics of animal gait to better understand how animals move.  OK, enough with this--I can't keep up the pretense.  I just thought this video of a llama trying to herd sheep was really cute.  Be sure and watch to minute 1:46.  What do you call that gait?  I call it the Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh).
