A few of our llamas who have crossed the rainbow bridge...

Cherokee

Cherokee
Cherokee crossed the Rainbow Bridge May 10, 2015 after 25 years of faithful service as a pack llama. He was “rescued” from a petting zoo near Cherokee, North Carolina in 1989 and began his career as a pack llama in 1990. He was always a delight to children and adults along the trail. His favorite treat was a banana which he expected daily after his retirement.

Thor packed for many years with the rigorous Mount LeConte llama pack string in the Great Smoky Mountains before joining our herd. A quite, shy fellow, he enjoyed left-over pancakes.
