Black Pearl has a new home!

Last Sunday some of our customers came to the ranch and brought two females they recently purchased from us so we could shear the girls and then breed them to our males. I did a modified lion cut on both of the girls. I usually only shear the barrel section but it is much hotter where they live now so I sheared the barrel and most of their back legs. They are so much cooler now!

While they were here, our customers/friends were looking at our young male llamas and fell in love with Black Pearl. I had barrel sheared him on Saturday in case some other prospective buyers might be interested in him (which they weren't - but now I know why I needed to shear him). Black Pearl is out of Minnie Pearl who consistently produces extremely sweet and easy to handle crias. He has always loved to give little llama kisses through the fence. When he started giving kisses on Sunday, they fell in love with him and wanted to take him home.

Here is Black Pearl after shearing - he has gone to a wonderful loving home where they are already referring to him as their "main man".


Congratulations and thank you Whispering Spirit Ranch!

Pricilla (Patty): Thank you! "unmatted" is the perfect word - we spent a lot of time doing just that before shearing him!
Lenox Knits (Paige): Thank you - and yes, it is perfect for everyone, including Black Pearl!
