July 2016 

 

State Fair  show- Cal Expo – Sacramento:

We took 4 llamas and got 4 1st places and 2 Grand Championships!

A fun show for all human participants but not for the llamas …

Too hot and noisy.

*****************

January 2016

Hobo show in Turlock was a great success: 7 first places, 3 seconds, 4 Reserve Champions and 4 Grand Champions!

This time all the llamas we took were born on our farm.

The Best of show llama was a 7 months old female from Oregon that was sired by our Inca Legend, bred at Sherri Talmon’s farm.

March 2015

Just back from the McRoberts herd sale. Flew to a freezing cold Nebraska where we drove around a frozen pasture to look at llamas in 5 degrees weather with strong winds!

What a beautiful and so very hardy herd!!

Purchased 2 beautiful Suri females: MGF Estralita and MGF Godiva White Chocolate. They will arrive to our farm in April.

February 2015

A tough act to repeat.

An hour later I was the very excited new owner.
What fun it will be to breed him to some of my girls.
All that stretch and color!
