Marbleous

2003 Regional Qualified
Halter and Pack

" Marbles" got a rough start in life by being born a month premature but after 3 days of intensive care he finally decided to stay with us. He never cared for the taste of grain as a juvenile so he was underweight and did not, at first, do as well in ring as we knew he could. As a yearling though, he changed his mind about llama chow and started to grow and fill out nicely. Today, our faith in little Marbles has paid off. He now impresses the judges with his color, heavy bone, straight conformation and yes, he even cheats by giving them kisses. Beauty and personality, he is simply Marbleous!

2002 Regional & National Qualifier

Born: May 25, 2001

Update

Marbles is no longer available for breeding due to a back injury. He is at UTK where he is undergoing physical therapy and hamming it up with the Vets and Vet students.

  (He thinks he is at a Spa and does not want to come home)

Update

Marbles was euthanized on 7/12/04.  We are awaiting the necropsy to determine what was wrong with him. All his test; Spinal Tap, Blood Work, X rays and Cat Scan showed no reason for him not to be able to get up. It was when Marbles became very depressed and no longer wanted to try to keep living that we gave up and let him go. Marbles was an incredible llama and will always be in our hearts.  Words can not describe how we feel at his loss.
