Exposed to El Sombro for a Spring 2019 cria

We saw this girl for the first time when she was just born at the Colorado Sapaveco Ranch. We had gone to pick up Argentine Marcella whom we had just recently purchased. I had mentioned to Robin Benson's that I thought a great name for this magnificent cria would be Champagne Elegance.  Then in October 2014 Rick and I drove out to Texas to support and compete in The Lonestar Llama Showdown.  "Ellie" (Champagne Elegance) was 15 months old. We both just fell in love with this incredible, tall, stretchy girl. Rick worked for the entire weekend trying to convince the Benson's that Ellie belonged out in California representing their breeding program to the west coast.  I know how difficult it was for Courtnee Benson Onsager to let this beautiful girl leave her ranch. I went through the same agonizing heartache when we sold WOL Paradise in June. The reality is that we are both breeders and this is what we do!
