Our breeding stud male llamas
We currently have 11 breeding stud males on the farm, plus young Lunny , another one in the making ! Benito was imported from a specialist camelid breeder in Switzerland in 2010 , who carefully selects and imports top quality llamas from South America. One of Europes top breeders in Northern Italy who imports many wonderful woolly llamas from Chile provided us with Nahuel del Sur , a proven half Argentine stallion originally imported from Chile . Paolo was conceived in Italy but born here at Watertown . 2016 saw the arrival of two more exciting new prospects, one being Cinzano , an adult llama from Switzerland , who started work that summer, and he has given us some great crias already. The other new import in 2016 was young Samu , just 6 months old at the time , also from Italy , and his eagerly awaited first crias will be born in 2019 .2017 saw an exciting importation of several llamas from the USA and Canada , including one full and one half Argentine and two suri males who have already given us some great new genetics in our crias of 2018 ! Finally , in December 2018 our team was joined by Sonic Boom , the son of two North American llamas , and Lusitano , born and bred in Italy .
Cinzano is the newest recruit to our team , and was kept in an adjacent paddock for his quarantine period , but was able to communicate with the other males over the fences. Nevertheless there were still some adjustments to be made to the pecking order once we opened the gate and let the boys run together !
