Our llamas are for sale!

We had a tough end to 2015 with a requirement to have our llamas TB tested - the good news arrived earlier this month to tell us we are TB free - however, the stress and discomfort that both the llamas and ourselves went through makes the whole idea of keeping llamas one that just fills us with dread rather than joy, so we have decided that it is time to call it a halt and move on!

We were breeding our llamas for sale in any event, so making a real effort to sell our llamas rather than just let the herd get a bit bigger every year, it sort of adds some reality to the situation.

Last year we made the decision to stop breeding as we were running out of room, but Nazca surprised us by getting Katie, Willow and Princess pregnant before he had the fateful operation, and despite failing the previous two years to get anyone pregnant.

This year he has produced Miss Take (Misty), Miss Hap (Happy) and BooBoo.

This is BooBoo!

I also turned 60 this month, a time to take stock and decide whether the directions I am taking are the ones I want, and whether it is time to make a change. All these things added together made it an obvious choice to sell the llamas - to good homes obviously - so that is what we are doing.

Not only that, but we will be selling two 3.5 acre fields that te llamas live in, once they have gone.

So, if you are interested in owning a llama (it must be at least two, as they are a herd animal) please do get in touch, and maybe check out our new website - please spread the word!
