We spent a long time looking for Madrid. We needed strong, straight legs, excellent balance, a topline that wouldn't quit. We needed good fleece, and a long family history of great temperaments.

Once Madrid was gelded and retired from the breeding pen, he proved himself to be the BEST pet - friendly, curious, smart, and always willing to work or play. He took kids for rides, he packed, he drove - and he introduced many, many people to the wonders of llamas and the fun of showing!

Now that Madrid is 16, he's a bit arthritic and he's REALLY retired - nothing to do now but hang around with the lladies, getting oats and talking to visitors. He had a tough week recently - he showed someone new how to cut toenails.

Madrid was Canada's High Point Performance Llama for 2003 and earned his Obstacle Level Two at the ripe old age of 11.
