Klahowya was Rosie's last baby for us, and has finally finished growing up! Like full-sister Saucony, she is verging on overly-tall by our preferences at 46". Like her other full sibs, Klahowya is also weight-control challenged, but is much the easiest of the bunch to keep at optimum weight.
Klahowya exemplifies the highly-desirable standard (short) Classic coat, has excellent packing potential, and is also a good breeding prospect for anyone who is serious about producing top-quality working Classic llamas.
We produced Klahowya with the intent to sell her, and now she's reached full maturity and will be ready for a new, appreciative home in mid-2017 after weaning her first offspring (due late Feb 2017, and possibly for sale). We actually were planning to keep Klahowya — she's THAT GOOD — but like full sister Saucony, Klahowya is much too closely related to our next-generation studs Koa and Scioty and although we can breed her to Highlight, we wouldn't have the option to retain any offspring as replacements in our breeding herd ... and so it's back to plan A.
A llama comparable to Klahowya (including true Classic coat, outcross genetics, congenial disposition, and striking appearance) is a rare find, and we know that in spades. Klahowya's relatives also have outstanding reproductive and maternal traits — important things that we've learned (the hard way) are much, much rarer than we're all led to believe.
Klahowya's current price is $2500 as a guaranteed breeder (her 2017 offspring is NOT included in that price), and she will be available after her 2017 baby is weaned (projected to be August or September of 2017).

Also available (immediately) is Klahowya's strong-and-confident nonbreeder half-sister Peanut. Klahowya's powerful full brother Credo (PLTA MPL certified) is a working packer in WA state (we have retained two of his offspring in our herd); full sister Saucony is a working packer for Jackson Hole Llama Trekking.
Klahowya is the Chinook jargon friendly greeting; Chinook jargon, for those who don't know, was the near-universal trade and inter-tribal language of the Pacific Northwest, spoken by Native Americans and whites alike whenever a common tongue was required. Klahowya is, like her mother and all her sisters, prone to bestowing pleasant greetings on all who meet her.
