JLL Michele M’ Belle

LW Marcellus x PPLP Huckaboo

michele_1542_crop_250.jpgAlthough Michele has her ALSA ROM and we are very proud to show her, her real fame is from her carreer as a PR and therapy llama. Michele has the most beautiful head and proud carriage, and when we visit a health care facility, you can hear the “ooh’s and aaah’s” from everyone! Michele simply loves the attention from childrem and adults, thriving on all the handling, touching, hugging, bumping of wheel chairs, and even the occasional over-zealous hair pulling. Michele is one of the few llamas to have earned her Delta Society certification as a Pet Partner. We have held off breeding her even though she is an adult, in order to use her for valuable visits at our local children’s home and Riley Hospital summer camps. She is often specifically requested to attend, and we just cannot disappoint her many fans. Showing and breeding are more fullfilling when we also share our llamas with those who really appreciate their visits. At some point we will breed Michele, and we hope she has a clone of herself that is just a versatile!

FW Tia Juanita

Macho De Las Montanas x FW Somekindahoney



Tia is a full Bolivian girl out of the respected “Monty” and Honey lines. I just love her palomino color, and her fleece has sold every year. All of Tia’s babies have been very correct with super silky fiber, and the best dispositions. Tia is a great mom, and one of those consistent, “no-worries” mothers that become treasured foundation dams. She is the mother of YW Phoenix, YW Alaska Cruz (owned by Dortha Little), YW Tiajuana Cruz, and current cria by Smokin Gun.

YW Kona Lady

LW Captain Curry x Grace & Favor of King MT



Kona is one of our renown “Curry girls” that we kept in our program. It was difficult to choose which beautiful show photo to put on this site! Kona was Reserve Champion Medium Wool Juvenile Female at the Grand National, earned 40+ ALSA points and multiple champion and reserve champion placings, and finsihed her show career with a Top Ten (6th) at the LFA Futurity. She has proven to be a good mother and has passed her silky, high luster, locked fiber to her outstanding cria including YW Kailua Cruz.

Vana (proven bred female)

Whist x VignetteDOB



Vana is likely the largest female of our many big girls, hailing from Kay Patterson’s program. She has the long upright neck of the El Fuerte line, and passes that valuable trait to her offspring. Vana has taken Champion in the show ring, and is a proven champion-producer with strong, tall, large babies with super banana ears. She is an excellent milker, and although she is medium wool, her fiber is fine and her babies have good fiber coverage, showing in medium and heavy wool classes. All of her offspring are excellent show and breeding stock. Vana is an excellent foundation female, with the size and mothering abilities that we want in our program. She is the mother of YW Vanadium (owned by Marlene and Carl Gruetter), YW Voyager ¬†and YW Valkyrie, by Smokin Gun, who we are retaining in our program.

We are offering Vana bred to your choice of males. Imagine getting a suri offspring with Vana’s size, substance, and ears! Her fine-fibered babies have all been large and impressive. She will satisfy the showman and breeder of big, strong llamas bred to your choice of our show-winning males!

Summer Fall Winter Spring “Princess”

OAB La-Mar’s Llevi x Ivory Pond’s Jackie

princess_statefair.jpgThis little lady has had a huge impact on our breeding program, and is a prized “grandma” to many babies. Every one of her five cria have been champions in ALSA classes, and recently have also taken top winnings in futurity classes. Princess has her ALSA ROM and ALSA Halter Championship in Produce of Dam, having taken Grand or Reserve POD seven times with babies by three different males. Princess’s pedigree goes back to some old famous lines including Union Jack. Although Princess is average in size, her offspring have been tall and stretchy, and have the body capacity and “spring of rib” that seems to be disappearing from many of today’s fine-fibered llamas. She produces quality fleece, from silky to nearly-suri. Princess has more than earned her place as one of our top foundation females.

Princess Models Summer Cut

Princess Models Summer Cut

Her offspring include the champion-winners YW Chatelaine, YW Smoke Jumper (one of our Jr. herdsires), YW Double Impact (Marlene Gruetter), YW Curious Cat (also Best in Show), and First Place Hot Mama Futurity winner, YW Hot Java.

Bardo’s Gypsy

Peruvian Bardo x MGF Gypsy Woman

The huge, impressive Gypsy is one of our most recognized females. She has won several OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAALSA Championships, including a 4th place at the first ALSA Grand National in a class of forty incredible, yearling heavy wool females. Gypsy also took a 5th at the Celebrity World Futurity. She has turned out to be one of our top breeding females, supplying her babies with as much as two pounds a day weight gain and very high IgG’s. Her babies have all been correct and have her intelligent disposition. YW Highlander, a jr. herdsire we are keeping in our program, demonstrates the incredible bone and substance that we just love in Gypsy and her crias. She is also the dam to YW Could it Be Magic (Frank and Judy Hoffreiter) and YW Smokin’ Vin Fizz.
