In Memory - Our Boys
Pacific Rim's High Roller
Peruvian K-Tu x Pacific Rim's Deliela
Our boy Roller was a gentleman's gentleman. He had a nature that is rare to find in any animal. In his earlier days (before we purchased him) children were on his back going for rides. A stud that produced numerous offspring in his breeding career. Some were the highest sellers with U.S. breeders anxious to purchase his offspring. Some of those youngsters went on to be Champions just like their Dad, Roller boy. Roller was the Calgary Stampede's Supreme Champion 2005. He went on to challenge 'get of sire' entries in western Canada's lama shows (in the day). He was a treasure for us and we were glad to have him in his more mature years. I go into the boys barn still and expect to see those beautiful ears and head peering over the pine stall at me looking for his treats. What can I say.
Peruvian Condori PC-1 x WF Peruvian Ice (CAN)
Impact was a gentle sole and was the first to follow me into the barn looking for treats. Easy to handle and was not interested in tussling with herd mates. So mellow in fact that we eventually moved him in with our young male group as a mentor. He seemed to enjoy his status as the alpha male and never displayed any dominance over the youngsters. We miss our boy so much.
T.L.R. Silver Cloud
T.L.R. Ramstar x T.L.R. Geebey's Dream
Silver was on his way to a slaughter house when we purchased him. Such a lovely gent we just had to save him. Ears torn, rags for fibre he was standing proud none the less. He was a very big boy with familiar sires scattered throughout his family tree.....Nobility, Playboy, Silver Star's Doc Holiday. Silver had one cria for us (Silver's Finale) and through her and her crias his legacy continues. We miss our boy ...he remains in our hearts forever. So glad that his final years were with us. A safe haven and a forever home.

Sadly February 21, 2020 Clippy passed away. We attribute our loss to his senior age. He was a fabulous boy, one of our very first Herdsires. Clippy was a Supreme Champion, all of his ribbons proudly framed and on display at our farm. He graced our fields with beauty so much so that he became our grand logo boy. Many Llama breeder's worldwide will certainly recognize this photograph. He was breathtaking on the run as evidenced. We will miss his dearly.
Titan was an absolutely stunning in his carriage, personality, conformation. His paternal brother Northwest Tonto was a principal at Twin Lakes Llama Ranch. Titan's Grandsire was $100,000.00. There is no doubt that Titan produced some of the most correct and beautiful offspring that we have on our farm. His daughter, Misty Morn's Diamond Frost, graced the cover of Camelid Quarterly a few years back. We are devastated to have lost our boy. It just simply gets harder and harder to see our precious Llamas leave us over time.
Vyking is one of the first males on our farm. Our interest in this boy was his Sire's bloodline re: (Chilean Esperanza - direct import) giving us the opportunity to add yet another line to our programme. Experanza, his Sire, was sold to a European breeder leaving few of his line in North America. Elwood Blues (Vyking's paternal brother) has had great results in the show ring state side as well as in his breeding career before his passing. We have two females in our herd sired by Vyking. So glad that we are keeping his heritage moving forward.
