Jack & Tracy Pearson have been raising llamas since 1986. Now In addition to the single coat of silky llamas, they are adding and developing suri llamas. Our suri herd represents a variety of suri lines, plus many we have developed here at Pearson Pond Ranch. We have over 200 llamas that represent the finest bloodlines available, including Argentine, Chilean, Bolivian, Australian, Canadian, Peruvian and North Americans.Tracy with her girls - Click for Slide Show
This web site is designed to share not only our current animals and activities but the experience and knowledge developed at Pearson Pond over the past 22+ years. The "Support Care" includes how the Pearson's faced off and stood down a barrage of deadly parasites almost 18 months ago. Even while they were in the midst of treating and trying to save 20 llamas that were severely affected (they all lived), the Pearsons openly discussed their ordeal and offered assistance and comfort to other camelid owners who were experiencing similar problems.
