We have come from a long and successful background of Arabian horse breeding and showing. We have applied the same careful consideration to our llama breeding program. That has taken us to many top ribbons including Regional and National Championships. Along the way we refined our goals of breeding the best llamas we could. We set out to produce gentle, friendly llamas that were tall, long necked, correct legged, well-balanced, and fluid moving with attractive heads and look-at-me presence. We studied what the most successful breeders in the industry were producing, and then began acquiring llamas from renowned and proven bloodlines to improve our own program.
We have seen an increasing marketability of premium llama fiber, and the need for producing fine, dense, lustrous fiber on our llamas. We determined adding Argentine blood to our breeding program would best help us increase those qualities in our herd. We also were attracted to their unique, robust body-style, large leg bone and feet, and their exceptionally easy-going dispositions.
The Argentine sires we chose for our breeding program are from the most influential Argentines brought into the United States in the early 2000’s. There are currently only about 400 full Argentines in all of North America. They make an impact wherever they go. Even the part-Argentines strongly exhibit their very recognizable looks and gentleness. They are aptly called the “Teddy Bears” of the llama world.
We are concentrating our breeding program on our full and part Argentines. We currently have five full Argentine males and thirteen full Argentine females of the most influential and impressive producing bloodlines that were imported (originally from Argentine, via Chile). Four of the full Argentine females were actual imports themselves. Llama Dreams also now has 22 part Argentines that are 1/2 and better, with eleven part Argentines due in 2013 starting in mid April. This is the first year we will have part Agentines of our breeding program for sale.
We would love to have you visit our farm in person in Central Oregon, or if you are unable to come see us, we will be posting new photos of our current Argentines and new crias throughout the year, so keep checking back on our website.
