Quality & Trained Llamas for Sale
We only sell 3-5 of our own llamas a year. Why? Because we believe that an animal should not be sold unless it has been completely trained. We would rather sell a few "REALLY GOOD" ones than a whole bunch of "OK" ones. We also like to focus on bloodlines, conformation, temperament and overall long term soundness!
Our animals are guaranteed by contract to be healthy/sound and for the use they are sold for. There is no guesswork and promises of "Would possibly make a good" or "Might work out for." Since we actually do train and do the things we sell our animals for, we have a pretty good idea of their abilities. We breed/purchase for well conformed and nicely mannered animals. If they don't fit this criteria, we won't sell them! Anybody can say their llama will do a job, but actually being capable is a whole other thing.....
Each breeding animal comes with it's own informational book and any ribbons or show records they may have received during their time at JNK. Our llamas are current on a vaccinations and routine care items, including West Nile Vaccine on most. All llamas sold leave JNK with completed ILR registration and DNA verification cards on file with the ILR. We value everyone that is born here, even the non-breeders!
We will personally walk you through the process of working with the llama because you cannot be expected in most cases to know how to use the animal to it's full potential. If one of our sale animals is not what you are looking for, we can help you select one from another farm. We keep in contact with many of the farms around Washington and Oregon and will only refer to ones with similiar training/care methods. Niki also is available for consulting if you are looking for a particular animal. Any animals offered for sale from JNK Llamas come with a new halter/lead, after sale follow-up, showing services if requested, current on all routine care and much more.
Our llamas receive monthly grooming, fecals ran as needed, supplementing with minerals/pastes and more. We take care of our llamas and our customers! We have numerous referrals we can provide upon request.
Please be advised that we will NOT sell babies, breeding stock, mixed sex pairs or intact males to brand new owners for breeding etc.. Why? In over 30 years of llama involvement through both breeding and rescue, we have almost never seen this arrangement work out. Pairing a new owner with young untrained animals, hormonally charged animals or grumpy pregnant ones almost never ends up being a positive experience. Additionally, very rarely do new owners not ruin their babies by either over-handling (see the videos below) or not handling them enough. We have had to rehab, euthanize and deal with more than our fair share of failed baby situations caused by other irresponsible breeders. We care a lot about animals and want to make sure that they are in the right situation and that you get what you need too!
Whether we have what you are looking for or you need something different, we are happy to mentor and answer questions of future and present owners. We have found that by doing this, it cuts down on our rescue populations! We are not backyard breeders and welcome visitors to our farm. Our llama pens are cleaned twice a day and everyone always has fresh water and llama minerals available. We feed top quality Eastern Washington hay too! Raising healthy llamas is not cheap.......
We almost always have llamas that we know of that someone might part with after some arm twisting. Contact us directly for more information or with questions. Sometimes we know of a few great classic pack style llamas or nice woolly llamas for sale. Contact us for more information on them! Contact us to be on our waiting list for either the classic packers or woolly llamas. Currently, we are operating off a waiting list.
Everyone thinks you should start off with a pregnant female or baby llamas/alpacas and male/female breeding pairs. Over the years we have had to deal with many over handled and ruined adult animals from this type of program. Nobody can believe that a baby llama or alpaca will be an aggressive adult. Below are videos of people with these types of animals. Once they are at this point, they cannot be rehabbed or fixed. They are dangerous and a liability. Hence, why we will not sell babies or pregnant animals to new owners! It is not funny!
