2008 JNK Llama Babies
It is always a long wait when you are watching for the babies to come. Knowing you carefully matched a sire and dam and what that perfect match potentially will cria't. This result should be the epitome of what you are breeding toward after careful and strategic planning. We continue to be blessed with beautiful animals and wonderful buyers!
Top- Kiwi 2 weeks Bottom- Kestrel & Kiwi at 2 months
Serenity Park's Silver Lining
AKA Kiwi (F)
Marisco x CMF Eagle's Kestrel
Terry & Sandra Spekreijse of New Zealand
Owned by Rodd & Rezina Zeiler
This is the first of the Eagle daughters crossed with our full Peruvian herdsire, Marisco. We acquired Marisco for this VERY purpose and boy did he hit a homerun with Kestrel. Long ago, after careful bloodline watching we decided that Eagle's offspring definitely needed to be bred to outcross lines because of the amount of foundation Patterson lines he has. This cross was done to enhance the best of well respect North American and Peruvian lines. This big gal is a mix of North American, Canadian and Peruvian lines. Her barn name "Kiwi" comes from our affectionate nickname for Terry when he is visiting here in the U.S. Kiwi has been started on obstacles and basic handling....She is an absolute sweetheart.

The second offspring born out of our select classic program. This male is special with him being born on his dam's 20th birthday and a half brother to top show llama "Isle Eagle." Tatum is destined to be a brilliant male with a sire and dam as amazing as Toby and Aster! This is the one many folks have been waiting to see and we couldn't be happier with him. Special thank you to baby EXPERTS Grandpa Jim and Grandma Marilynn Larson for taking such good care of him and birthing him while we were at the Portland Rose Parade. This guy is loved and cherished......Tatum if chosen to stay intact will be improving pack lines in Montana when he is old enough.
JNK Tobias's Mazama (M)
Anders Tobias x Rocky Mountain Sunshine
Congrats to Margaret VanCamp
The first of our true classic pack performance breeding program results. This male is out of a Rocky Mountain Jester daughter and by our top show and pack male Anders Tobias. Both sides of this combined pedigree has hardcore pack and all around llamas and proven classic lines in it. Mazama has already been nicknamed "Little Toby" because he looks so much like a lighter version of his sire! With his basic training and handling, this guy is already showing great promise as a calm and easy to work with llama. He will be moving to Michigan in January 2009 and will stand there when he is old enough to create new packing lines there.
This guy is a cross between our Aladdin daughter and our *Sipan son. We were excited about his potential. There is no linebreeding in this pedigree. Vivi has shiny, high luster, black fiber and very heavy bone. He was named after a Starbucks drink by our local Praise radio talent, Lynette Morgan Unfortunately, Vivi was too friendly in our opinion (was just born that way) so we placed him with our trustworthy veterinarian Dr. Michael Anderson.
