The Argentine Llama


The Argentine llama is quite rare in Canada. They have a certain "exotic" look even without the Argentine-style haircut that is becoming increasingly popular. They have robust bodies and bone structure, mellow personalities and a great presence.


The output of fine dense fibre per animal is amazingly high since almost all the fibre is usable, from their ears to their toes. Once you have one Argentine llama you will, for sure, want more!

Our herd sire, Poco Rojo, is half-Argentine and is very handsome and correct. He has sired seventeen crias so far for us and we are particularly pleased with his ability to pass on his heavy bone, personality and fibre.

Lexie is 37" high at the withers and fits well into our miniature llama breeding program. Lexie is three-quarter Argentine. She is a gorgeous true black female and her first cria was Miss Moka, sired by Poco.

 

 

 

 


This photo of Lexie and Angie was taken at the September 2015 Saanich Fair, a large agricultural fair on Vancouver Island where the feature animal in 2015 was the llama & alpaca. Lexie was very well behaved with the public and participated in the obstacle course several times.

 


 

 


Argentine Santino

 

Our latest addition is Santino, purchased from Fortune Creek Llamas. Santino is a full Argentine male. His first cria was Blackjack, born in 2017, followed by Gemma and Rosie in 2018, and Martini, Nutmeg and Maverick in 2019.
