Post Newest llama cria
Hi all
Meet our newest cria. His name is Auriga Llamas Magellan. Some breeders are very interested in breeding black llamas we aren't but managed to end up with a black cria. Mum (white) is in the picture - grandma is black and white and the likely source of the black genes.

What a gorgeous little girl.

Crinia,
I'm wondering if there are sunburn issues with the white face/nose area, as there is with horses?

Yes we will have to watch that little white nose this summer and he may get to sport some zinc cream on hot days. Its usually only an issue with white noses with pink skin underneath.

Cute little fella,

why is their an interest in the black ones - in sheep breeding its certainly not a desirable trait - for wool production at least>

the black is popular with spinners and weavers and is uncommon
