We are located in the beautiful Santa Rosa Mountains in Southern California above Palm Springs.
In 1997, we chose to purchase two "pet" llamas to go hiking with and to enjoy with our children.
Well, that didn't last long and we soon began looking for a herdsire to begin our breeding program and found him - PPF Beijing. He was the most beautiful llama we had ever seen. Along with his wonderful disposition, he was a head turner with beautiful fiber and color. To this day, he commands attention wherever he goes - a true Champion. We began showing Beijing as a yearling and in no time, he earned his ALSA Championship and Recognition of Merit. Beijing now lives in Havana, Kansas with Dr. Michael Bush.
Since that time, we added PPF Moon Doggie to our breeding program. This exquisite male is a full chilean Dreamcatcher son. He is size, conformation and beautiful fiber to his offspring, not to mention his wonderful easygoing disposition. He is a sweetheart.
In 2002, we added a suri line to our herd, a White Heat son, namely "White Russian". This male has HUGE bone and his fiber is beautiful. This male has a wonderful easygoing disposition, as well. We are very excited about "Rusky's" production as he consistenly produces suri and suri/silky fiber on his offspring and they have all done fantastic in the showring from local shows all the way to Nationals. White Russian is an ALSA Get of Sire Champion now.
His first cria placed placed in the Top Five in their classes during their first show year in 2004. His first and second cria crop placed Top Ten at the 2004 Grand Nationals through the 2008 Grand Nationals in Lincoln, NE.
In 2005, we added a full Peruvian line to our breeding program with Nachi, a *Sipan son. Nachi went 2006 Grand National Grand Champion male and he is producing some incredible babies with his tall and statuesque phenotype. Nachi brings more diversity to accomplish our breeding goals.
In 2006, we added a gorgeous half Argentine male to our program, E.L. Superman, who went on to achieve his ALSA Halter Championship and ROM in a very short time period. Superman has proven valuable in his production here. In 2007, we added two junior herdsires. One suri male named Integrity's Top Drawer, a Peruvian Vice grandson. Top drawer has taken championship after championship. We can't wait to see what he produces in our breeding program.
in 2008, we added another herdsire to our breeding program, a champion outcross male named Elikxir. Elikxir is tall and substantial. He is an impressive male, indeed.
In 2009, we acquired a beautiful spiral locked suri male named
K-D Thunder Struck as well as a partnership in a very elegant and kind suri male, Sashimi Grade (who was named the 2009 Grand National Grand Champion Suri Wool Male).
Our goal has always been to produce top quality show stock and we were rewarded at the highest level in 2008 when Caroline showed a young male bred by us to the title of Grand National Grand Champion Medium Wool Male, namely WINS C.K. One. In 2009, WINS C.K. One also was awarded 2nd place in the Celebration Sale Llama Futurity in Oklahoma winning an impressive purse. He is owned by Super Star Llamas and we couldn't be more thrilled for them. To top off the 2009 show year, our Champion suri herdisre, Sashimi Grade, was awarded the 2009 Grand National Grand Champion Suri Male. In 2011 and 2012, we added an Argentine male, El Noche SKLL, to our family and a very fancy high silky male, Pacific's Trifecta.
We have an abundance of hiking trails around our home and often enjoy hiking around for the sheer enjoyment of it all. Enjoying these animals as a family when hiking and camping, along with presenting them in the show ring, has been a truly rewarding experience for us!
