All our geldings are user-friendly and well trained. Whether you want a fiber producer, pack animal, or just a friend, these boys are for you!
It's hard to sell these boys. They become like family, after a while. We strongly believe that only the very best should be kept as future herdsires. These boys are very good, but not quite good enough. Any one of them is competitive, structurally and conformationally, in a Nonbreeder class. As pets, pack, or therapy animals, they are outstanding.
All these llamas have been halter broke with beginning performance training. Most have worked with 4 - H youth, at local fairs, shows, parades, school events, or just for walks in the woods.
Each every one of these llamas comes with a Sugar River guarantee, for soundness. We stand behind our llamas. All our llamas are halter broke, and, in most cases, have been in the show ring or used in public relations, such as school visits or parades. Free delivery is available, within reason. We will provide health records for each purchase, provide health care guidelines, and demonstrate toenail clipping and haltering to all new owners. We will continue support by providing shearing and toe nail care, if requested - for our usual service fee. Grooming and showing consultations are also available. If these boys are to be used as guard llamas, we do offer advise on how to help them bond to their new herd. Most of these geldings/females have wonderful fleece.
Please note: Our pictures are rather outdated. All these photo's are showing the llamas when about one year of age - now at least two years old, or older.

He will be very competitive in performance, gelding, and fleece classes. First time out, with no obstacle training, just a few walks in the woods, having never worn a pack before, Pthalo earming Reserve Grand Champion in Open Performance, earning 13 ILR-SD points on his one and only time out.

Pheona looks a lot like momma. She has silky, dense fleece, with high luster. We love the way she carries herself so erect to show off her correct conformation. Pheona produced the most fleece of the 2010 production.
