The Wandering Llamas



Chester is a tall boy, but is very easy to lead. He is strong and steady and can carry all our goodies! He loves bananas and apples and will tolerate lots of petting! His sidekick is Jambo, who follows Chester everywhere!  Chester is one of MY favorite llamas!


Flash is quite the character...he is quite aloof. He has a slow gait and is easy to lead! Flash leads the group and is great with kids. He is also a fantastic "guard" lookout and will be the first to spot any wildlife, especially bears! If you are lucky, you may hear him do the "llama alarm call"!


Moose is a sweet young boy! Wait until you feel his incredible fluffy fiber!  Moose always has his little tail up while hiking! He is now 2 years old, but can sometimes be stubborn. He has completed his training and can now carry a full pack.


This cute guy is now 2 years old and is out working with the herd. Jambo is an "Appaloosa", which is my favorite llama pattern! He looks like a walking powder puff! Jambo adores Chester and they are inseparable on the trail. Come on out and help us train him! Jambo has his own Facebook page, visit: Jammin' Jambo!


A new arrival! If you want a talkative llama then Clifford's the one! He is very gentle and sweet and is a great llama to lead. Cliffford is older, so we dont make him carry too much. He is a large llama and has the sweetest face!


This little fat guy is quite sweet and has the most beautiful light brown eyes! He hums a lot so maybe he will sing for you! If you need a llama for a party, wedding or event, Old Man Willow is the pick ... he is one of the calmest llamas Ive ever known!


Buck is a smaller llama but very easy to lead. He has those silly buck teeth, so yes, Buck is his name! Even though he is small, Buck can carry a good load and is a great worker! Buck just arrived and is one of our newest llamas ... Come meet him!


GiraffyBear is so tall that he looks just like a giraffe! He is a bit shy, but very sweet and does a great job on the trail. Even though he is large, anyone will enjoy walking with him! And, he loves treats!


Let's welcome Rivendell, our newest llama, to the herd! Rivendell is a "Suri" llama, which means his fiber is crimped and wavy. He was a show llama and performed in llama shows for years. Rivendell is a tall guy, walks well with anyone, and is in pack training now and doing quite well.
