The Wandering Llamas

MEET OUR LLAMAS

CHESTER

Chester is a classic 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! Chester is older, but is still one of my best packers!  Chester has a BIG appetite and will eat anything!


FLASH

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"!


CHOCOLATE MOOSE

Moose is a friendly young boy! Wait until you feel his incredible fluffy fiber!  Moose always has his little tail up while hiking! He is now 3 years old, but can sometimes be stubborn. He has completed his training and can now carry a full pack.


COUSIN IT

COUSIN IT is one of our newest llamas and is a charmer! He's so mellow and sweet and has the most gorgeous "suri" wavy fiber! He is a small guy and loves to "talk" with his squeaky little hum...come out to meet him!

CLIFFORD

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! He is wonderful to lead and great with kids.


OLD MAN WILLOW

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

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! Come meet him!


ARAGORN

Aragorn is one of our newest llamas and is quite tall! He is VERY smart and observant. He was a show llama in the past and has won many ribbons! Now he has joined us out packing and hiking and enjoying nature! No more prancing around the show ring!


RIVENDELL

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 one of our friendliest llamas! I have to say, he one of my favorite llamas!


WIZARD

Welcome our newest baby llama!  He is precious and very adorable...we know that everyone will want to walk with him! He is now doing well, training on the trails and in a few years will be packing gear. His grandfather was named "Lord of the Rings", and since thats our company theme.... his name had to be Hobbit related!
