PHF CADFAEL'S BANNER.  Banner, son of  Cadfael and grandson of the legendary El Fuerte, is our second foundation sire.  A medium wool male born in 1997, Banner has earned 45 ALSA points, an ALSA Recognition of Merit, and an ALSA Championship.  Banner has sired many prize winning llamas, including Jerry Dunn's Bocelli and our Flutterby.  He is an eager breeder but also a true gentleman with his partner.  He is available for stud.

LITTLE ANDY'S FRECKLES.  Freckles was born in 1999, descended from the famous Spook line at Rocky Mountain Llamas.  She is shown above at the 2004 Estes Park Wool Market, where she won two firsts and two grand championships in the double show.  The previous year at Estes Park, in her only other show, she won a first and a reserve grand championship.  Our foundation dam was bred for the first time in 2003, to Banner, and in 2004 produced RLM's Flutterby, shown just below.  Freckles has a very sweet disposition and has proven to be an excellent mother.

FRECKLES' FLUTTERBY OF RLM. Flutterby was the first cria born here on the ranch, in September of 2004.  Out of Freckles by Banner, she weighed 30 pounds at birth, and has taken readily to training.  She has her mother's willing disposition, one of the traits we breed for, as well as her mother's long legs and neck.  At the Estes Park Wool market in June 2005, she took a first and reserve grand champion.

Lawrence of RLM.  Larry was born in September 2004, out of Easter Lily by Sheriff. He's a delightful llama, like his father friendly but  unaggressive.  He's shown here at nine months.
