This page is about to be updated , so keep watching this space or email me for more information, including please some details of what you are looking for .
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 !!
Son of Roseland Caramel and Swiss boy Rossi, born 22/5/13 , nickname Springer , this shy little chap has a coat of many colours ! Training sessions for Springer are all about building his confidence and he`s making good progress.
Son of Roseland Tabasco and Swiss male Benito , born 27/5/2013 , nickname Mc Vicar due to his clerics collar, this boy is slightly less woolly than some of the others , with a bright and lively personality.
Son of Italian Margherita and Swiss Benito, born 1/6/13 , nickname Checkers , this lovely chap has inherited his spots from his Mum, as well as her calm friendly personality.
Son of Italian Llaima and Swiss Dad Benito, born 7/6/13 , boy Number 10 , hence the nickname David Camelid ! Dave is a scruffy little oik, into everything , always wearing football boots, and super friendly !
Son of Roseland B&T and Swiss Rossi, born 21/7/2013 , really calm , another gentle soul, from a breeding line that consistently produces this lovely temperament. ( and no, his leg is not in plaster ! )
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.
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.
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.
