Real Pack Llamas
&
Classic Llama Breeding Stock







Welcome to the Spring Creek Llama Ranch Website


We selectively breed for packing llamas.

Our 33rd year packing with llamas.

We provide support for
new llama owners.






After 33 years in the llama business, we have retired from breeding and selling pack llamas. This means we are rounding up a small group of llamas to keep for long pack trips in our retirement. Also staying with us are our retired packers and retired breeding females. They are part of our family and will stay with us until the end.

We no longer have any llamas for sale.

We have kept up our pages about our former llamas for historial bloodline information.

The experienced string crossed the bridge with calm confidence. Graysun would not go and found himself caught between the dog and the bridge. read more...

He related how once at the fair (a place that can be stressful for animals and their owners) a whole herd of stressed out goats became bulgy-eyed and crazy in their stalls. The fair folks thought a plague had hit. read more...
