The Boys

 

The long-awaited details of this years boys for sale have been delayed , waiting for a photo opportunity that isn’t taken on a bad hair day , which seems to be a forlorn hope so here are some bedraggled ones to go on with , and hopefully better ones to follow !!

All these boys were born between April and August 2013 , have been vaccinated and micro-chipped , and are now undergoing halter-training. At the time of writing they have not yet been registered , so have yet to be officially named , ( so if you always wanted to buy a llama called Geronimo now is your chance ! )

We have a small herd of some 30 female adult llamas who make up our breeding stock, along with 5 unrelated stud males imported from Switzerland and Italy, and it is normally the offspring from this core group that are available to buy each year.

All our young llamas currently for sale are born and bred on the farm , and raised here so I know every animal very well in terms of their parentage and personality , how they handle, their medical history, and their suitability for different purposes and different owners requirements. As a member of the British Llama Society I am a registered breeder and have signed up to their code of conduct for selling llamas. Unfortunately some less fortunate llamas are sold by horse traders and at agricultural auction sales , or by people who simply buy and sell livestock for money , which is not at all the same thing as buying from a reputable breeder.

If you think you might be interested in buying some llamas from Watertown I would be very pleased to give you the guided tour , and to introduce you properly to the various llamas that we have available so that you can decide which ones, if any , are right for you. There is no hard sell , and absolutely no pressure to buy ! I`m always happy to talk llama and to spend time sharing my llamas with visitors.

In addition we sometimes have adult llamas for sale and suggest suitable "groupings" if you are looking for several llamas.

There are lots of fancy terms for describing the different types and lengths of llama fleece, ccara, curaca, suri, tampuli, tapada , lanuda to name but a few, so I have tried to simplify my descriptions as follows : none of these llamas are the really short-fleeced ccara classic llamas , but some are woollier than others so in my terminology here ...............

"very woolly" means long fleece, very woolly legs right down to the fetlocks, hairy ears, long bushy eyebrows and top knot, a beard and lots of lovely long neck wool.

"slightly less woolly" still means heavily fleeced and lovely dense neck wool, but with a "cleaner" face, and/or the long fleece not continuing all the way down the legs.


For details of other females that may become available please email annie.austen@btinternet.com or phone me , 01769 540840 / 574411.
