My name is Oscar, but you won’t mistake me for Oscar the grouch on Sesame Street! My hair likes to go all over the place like his, but I am not a grouch! In fact, don’t tell the other llamas, but Steve says that I’m one of the nicest llamas he’s ever met. I like leading, so if you want to hike at the front of the pack, pick me.
Hi there. My name is Leonardo, but you can call me Leo. Have you noticed that there are quite a few white llamas on the farm? Well, I am the littlest white llama. I’ve been living on the farm here for about two years, and I’m still getting used to trekking with people. I’m not as comfortable carrying a pack as my brother, the General, is, but once I’m haltered, I’m a great hiking companion.
A-TTEN-TION!!! Just kidding, just kidding! Don’t you think my picture makes me look like an army general? I guess that’s why they call me General Jackson. Well that, and I like to be the leader. Some people think that I look like my brother ole Snuffleupagus. But I’m not quite as big as he is, and I have a brown spot on my hip. Now, let’s get a move on! Hup, two, three four! Just kidding, just kidding!
Hi there! Are you looking for a large llama? Then you must be looking for me! My claim to fame is that I weigh almost 400 pounds and mm the biggest llama on the farm. Don’t let my size scare you though, I’m a gentle giant. My name is White Lightening, but sometimes the call me Snuffleupagus. I’m a big guy, who’s a little bit shy, and everyone thinks I walk funny, sort of like Snuffy on Sesame Street.
My name is Blackfoot, and guess what? I have a black foot! Johnna says I’m the teenager of the Smoky Mountain Llama Treks family! I love having fun with new friends, especially when you want to pet or cuddle me. Everyone thinks that I’m really cute, and I agree! In fact, I’m so cute that I think you’re going to fall in llama-love with me!
We all sure hope that you’ll come and visit us soon!
We want to help you make a
Smoky Mountain Memory!
My name is Peanut Butter, but everybody just calls me Peanut. Some hikers think I’m the baby because I’m the smallest (and some say the cutest). But the truth is I’m an alpaca, cousin to the llamas. Everybody loves my long eyelashes and soft curly fiber. I like to be petted, but please don’t tickle me. (It makes me kick and then I get accused of having an attitude!) When our treks take us to the creek, I’m always the first to jump in!
You can call me Abu. If you’re looking for a cool llama to hang out with, Cassidy will tell you that I’m your guy. I’m cool, calm, curious, cautious, alert and attentive. I learned all those things while packing for LeConte Lodge. Now that I’ve retired from there, I just want to have fun. I’m easy to lead, and if you bring me bananas, I’ll be your best llama friend forever.
JJ Bird is my name, but I’m not a bird. Some people think I look like a deer because of my unusual coloring, but I am definitely a llama. In fact, I come from champion show-winning llama parents, and I was the first llama at Smoky Mountain Llama Treks. I’ve been around since before Steve and Johnna were here. Well, to be honest, most of us were. I just like to have fun with Steve–playing chase is one of our favorite things to do together! We do have a few new llama faces in the pack since Steve and Johnna arrived though. Here, let me introduce you.
Trekkers like to take pictures of me. I’m Blackjack, the largest of the llamas and the Smoky Mountain Llama Trek’s stud. I was bred to be a show llama and come from excellent blood lines. (Talk to Steve or Johnna about my stud fees.) While I’m the alpha male in the pack, I believe in leading by example, teaching the other llamas to be gentle and lovable. One thing you should know about me is that I am a picky eater. I don’t like graham crackers, or banana or orange peels.
