The Dawning of Mandalla Llamas
We have loved llamas for many years and after much research and enquiries we visited Judy and Paul Rose in Devon who had an amazing herd of llamas before their retirement. They had in particular been breeding for wool along with lovely personalities.
In the Spring of 2008 our small breeding herd of Roseland Tampuli llamas came to Sussex. Tampuli are woolly llamas with more wool down their legs and have a woolly topknot opposed to the shorter haired Ccara llama that was originally seen in the UK and more common here.
Our little herd settled in and bred some lovely babies (cria) over the next few years. Space was limited in Sussex and expanding the herd with new blood was not possible. Finally in 2014 we were able to make our long awaited move to Cornwall to a beautiful little farm in an enchanting valley near Looe.
The llamas and friends have settled in to their lovely surroundings and we look forward to small additions in 2016.
The llamas were welcomed to our home by
