This future herd sire is co-owned with Tom & Barb Parsons, Animal Acres Llamas.  We first saw his sire, Esperanza, shortly after he was imported to Medicine River Suris by Wendell & Ileen Miller, from Chile, in July, 2007. The sire embodied every thing we like in our llamas: Tall, stretchy, striking, super suri with wonderful fleece, correct conformation and presence. We knew we wanted a male from Esperanza to add to our breeding program. Then, we saw this wonderful little boy out of Karma, who has produced other show champions.  Yes! Elwood is a great addition to the Sugar River Llama breeding program!  Elwood has been giving us some fantastic offspring.  Elwood is doing a great job for us!
As a further note, Elwood is standing at stud. An opportunity for you to add some of his rare genetics to your breeding program.  His sire, Elwood was sired by *Chilean Esperanza, a super suri who was imported from Chile first to Canada and then on to Germany.  Not a lot of this bloodlines around. Therefore, a rare genetic opportunity.
