We currently have five Llamas, Polo, Mr McGee, Leo, Marlia and Bella and two Alpacas, Midnight and Logan (A Alpaca who thinks he is a Llama) making up our Trekking team. See below for more information about them all.
Bella (2018) joined the Trekking team in early 2019. She is very calm Llama and is a regular member of the Trekking Team. Although one of the youngest llamas in the group, she is by far the largest, she is inches taller than here half Brother Mr Mc Gee. She is a Spotty Llama, mainly white with black and brown spots with in her fleece. Bella will start to carry a pack this year (2021)
Marlia (2018) arrived with Bella early 2019. As you can see she looks different from our other Llamas, she is a Suri Llama, her fleece looks like dreadlocks and is very silky. Marlia is very calm and brave, she will take on the role of Lead Llama if Polo isn’t in the group. She is trained to take a pack and will start to take weight this year (2021) Marlia is always popular with walkers as she is calm and enjoys a Hug.
Polo (2008) is a star! he is calm and very friendly he is also a striking looking llama. He also walks very well and is easy to halter in the paddock. Polo took to carrying a pack without any fuss, in fact it only took one days training.
Merlin (2012) has now been retired and along with Blackjack he is living a life of Luxury in Dorset
Midnight is one of our female Alpacas who has won many Rosettes at local and regional shows. Unfortunately she is unable to breed so she is now in the Trekking team. She loves to go out for walks and loves a cuddle, she is a bit of a favourite and very pretty.
Mr Mcgee along with Leo came to us in Nov 2014 when they were just over 12 months old. They are usually together on our walks. Mr McGee is trained to carry a pack so is usually carrying the picnic. Mr Mcgee is known as Woolly Llamas which means he has a much more fibre than other llamas and needs to be clipped in the Summer to make carrying a pack more comfortable.
Leo along with Mr Mcgee came to us in Nov 2014 when they were just over 12 months old. They are usually together on our walks. leo is also trained to carry packs. Leo’s breed is also a Woolly Llamas, he has a much heavier coat then the others and needs to be clipped in the Summer to make carrying a pack more comfortable.
Logan (2010) an Alpaca who thinks he’s a llama, he was the ﬁrst male cria born when we ﬁrst started our Alpaca herd. Logan put himself into the trailer one day when we where loading the llamas, so he came along and has been trekking ever since. He is calm and easy to handle and once he gets to know you will happily accept cuddles. Logan is a favourite with Adults & Children as he isn’t as big as the Llamas so it is a little less daunting if you aren’t used to big animals.
