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.

At the rim, rather than descending on the official trail, a particularly poorly maintained chute of loose rock and soil, we took a hard left and picked our way along a narrow bench on the face of what amounts to a cliff with about 300 vertical feet of chances to fall. read more...

Levels of Training for Pack LLamas and What to Expect


Another good example of the terrible twos in llamas is a fellow we had been working with since birth. He was doing pretty well hiking our training trails here at home. Over the winter, just before his second birthday, I decided to take him for a walk. He was a nut case. He jumped around and crowded me from behind. This went on for the next couple of months. Just six months later, he went on his first training pack trip. He behaved as expected and performed most excellently for his first outing. read more...
