Cynamon is the third time Ranger Dusty and Gold'n Hawk genes have combined, and he's meeting our expectations for excellence in disposition; he is both sensible and interactive. Cynamon is also notably active and athletic. If llamas competed in cross-country jumping courses, that would be Cynamon's career!

Because we already have two fine shortcoat half-sibs, one from each side (maternal and paternal) as stud prospects, it is unlikely that Cynamon will be retained as a stud here. But what is not a good thing for our breeding program will be a wonderful thing for Cynamon — he will almost certainly get to enjoy being a happy-go-lucky gelding.

Cynamon is being considered for retention as a "trainer" gelding (we desperately need one or two!), but that's several years in the future, and there will be other competitors for that job; he may end up being a valued working llama for a serious backcountry enthusiast instead. For now we are enjoying interacting with him, and watching his growth and development ... and his antics with agemate Dunc'n Hawk.

"Cynamon" is the Polish spelling of Cinnamon ... giving an uncommon fellow an uncommon version of this very apt name for his coloration.
