Our Llama Family

We know each of our llamas as unique individuals. Each has different talents, needs, and desires. Those of our llama family who are nonbreeders are just as unique and special to us as those who have been selected to be the most likely to produce outstanding classic performance llamas, and we strive to make the lives of those who are breeding as full and enjoyable as if they were nonbreeding companion llamas. And, for those who have had a rough start in their lives (such as the rescues) or for those who just have a different perspective on what constitutes a "good" life, we accommodate, learn from, and even celebrate those individual differences.

Breeding and nonbreeding llamas are separated below (with breeding llamas separated by sex) for the convenience of those looking specifically at what we're using for breeding stock. They're all family to us; that's why they're otherwise in alphabetical order.

Our ongoing inspiration

Ranger Dusty

1984 - 2009

Why? Because of all the thousands of pack llamas we have known,
he is still the best, hands down. In breeding, we strive to come as close as possible to his endurance, willingness, sane mind, fluid gaits, and superior body and balance for both packing and driving in harness.

Some of these animals are immature, and may move to another category (such as "prospective breeding" or "available") in the future. Check each animal's individual page for clarification and projections (be sure to keep in mind that "life is what happens while we're busy making other plans" — a projection of future availability is not a promise!).

Rattlesnake Ridge Aquila (not ours) will be looking for a new home sometime after he's gelded. From proven packing stock (and 3/4 sib to our stud prospect Kody), but is a woolly (not suitable for fiber use).
Could be a good partner for Cynamon, above.

We have NO females
on the availability horizon

Four females are bred for 2024.
We anticipate retaining all of those babies regardless of sex, but will make final decisions after evaluating actual outcome against our projected breeding needs.
