The FINE Print
What comes standard with each of our llamas:
All of our llamas are microchipped in a safe location for your (and their) protection, and come with money-back guarantees appropriate to their purpose (packing, breeding stock, etc), and a fitted halter (unless you prefer to provide a suitable one).
All breeding stock is registered and has DNA on file with the ILR. Nonbreeding male llamas will have been castrated prior to sale.
All of our llamas are sold with full disclosure of personal history, known history of relatives and ancestors, and (for nonbreeding animals only, obviously!) known or suspected genetic defects. You'll find, for instance, the reason(s) each animal was castrated or spayed on his or her webpage.
All of our llamas come with a compatability guarantee — if they don't get along with your current llamas, inform us within 30 days and we'll take them (and their "gear") back for a full refund (minus transportation expenses if we incurred any).
All llamas that we bred may return to Lost Creek Llamas for their retirement years. (Llamas that we resold and companions to those llamas we bred who are returning here for retirement will be considered on a case-by-case basis.)
What comes standard with our pack llamas:
Pack llamas who have reached any stage in their training where they are carrying significant weight are priced and sold with a fitted pack saddle (Flaming Star) unless the buyer already has one (llamas whose training is not finished are not priced with saddles but can be packaged with a saddle or pack system at an additional cost). You'll have the options of:
• purchasing the panniers of your choice (not everyone's needs are the same — that's why we don't just include them outright)
• purchasing a used set (if we have them on hand), or
• using your own if they are compatible.
• Registration is available for any non-breeding llama at cost.
• If the llama has earned titles, awards, or certificates, those will accompany the llama upon request.
• At buyer option, we retain ILR registration on nonbreeder females OR have the registration changed to "nonbreeder" status at time of transfer.

Go ahead, PLEASE, shop around! Look everywhere. A lot of people will sell you llamas. Not a lot of them even know their animals' complete history let alone the type of information we ferret out about our animals' parents. Those who do know may or may not tell you all about a specific llama's quirks . . . AND his or her "warts."
