We currently have severn Llamas, Polo, Blackjack, Merlin, 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 & Marlia
Bella & Marlia (2018) joined the Trekking team in early 2019. They are very calm little Llamas and have started to come out on walks with us. Marlia is very confident and is already joining walks with Customers. Marlia looks a little different to our other Llamas. She is a Sure Llama, so has dreadlocks instead of fluffy fleece. Bella is also coming on walks although we are handling her ourselves until she is confident enough to be handled by our Customers. We anticipate this will be by August 2019.
Blackjack (2008) has been part of the trekking team since he was about 10 months old.. Although he loves to go out on walks he is a bit stand of ish. He likes to be at the back of the group whilst on a trek He will usually tackle any new obstacle before the rest of the group.
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 been with us since he was about eight months. Merlin is Steve’s Llama and we don’t usually hand him over to anyone else. He is a little more difﬁcult to handle but he is a great lead llama. Merlin likes to walk out front and the rest of the team are happy to follow him. Merlin is happy to eat from your hand.
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.
