Jacob purchased Ilchie when he was in his late teens and she was just a couple weeks old. Ilchie's owner and breeder were moving out of the area and the only way to purchase Ilchie was to buy the entire herd, so that is what I did.
I loved her looks, stretchy, and "kinky" wool. "Suri llama" before the suri alpaca hybrid suris came on the market.
Ilchie produced 9 offspring, including 6 females and 3 males. 3 were not registered including a female who died when she was young. Ilchie's early babies were big, growthy, and vigorous. Her best cria is La Luna (see below). Through La Luna this is a line that is in many of our best animals.

La Luna is it for me. What a llama should look like. I purchased her dam in 1997 from some friends of ours in the llama 4-H program and her dam at that time was what I wanted all my llamas to look like. As much as I love her dam, La Luna is even better! She is a great-granddaughter to "Martha My Dear", Jacob's first breeding female that he purchased in 1993 as a part of his 4-H project. Luna is 4th generation Mumford breeding.
