Gio is a llama on a mission — we just don't know exactly what mission he has in mind yet! In any case, Gio has been one intense bundle of muscle and energy from the moment he was born. Gio will be a one-in-a-million llama for someone; at the same time, he's so intense that he's not going to be a llama suitable for just anybody.

We won't need Gio as a stud (unless some serious and untoward "life happens" event occurs). We plan to retain him for the next few years to evaluate whether he fits our own needs as a harness and packing gelding. If it turns out that he's not a fit here, we will offer him for sale as a gelded packer after maturity and training. In the interim, Gio is specializing in being ahead of the curve and we're enjoying the challenge of managing his rare precocity in a way that instills respectful boundaries without undermining his strong spirit.

"Gio" is short for a number of Italian names; it's also the name of an exceptional red dun Fjord stallion. Urban slang defines "Gio" as "hot" and "godlike". Our Gio is definitely both exceptional and "hot"!
