xx For Reference: GNLC Brunello (herdsire)
DOB: Jun 21, 2017
Parents: GNLC Merlin x GNLC Valentina

Brunello was the last cria produced by Merlin here at Great Northern Ranch. His dam is Valentina (8 generations GNLC), our most elegantly tall female who stands 48” at the withers and a lofty 82” at the poll.

Brunello is 50” at the withers, 78” at the poll and has a glistening black coat. His physical refinement, correctness, athleticism and strength make him a joy to watch in the pasture!

Brunello is now owned by Mitch and Ranae Vakoch, Maple Grove Llamas, Gully, MN.


xx For Reference: GNLC Merlin (herdsire)
DOB: Jun 18, 2006 (ILR #267549)
Parents: GNLC Prospero x GNLC Queenie

The epitome of the dual purpose llama, Merlin was a game changer. Strong, handsome and athletic, this gentle 430# giant stood 49” at the withers and was one of our strongest packers – a perfect example of our slogan “We Breed Beauty in the Beast.”

Hightower, a Merlin son, now stands as Great Northern’s leading herdsire.

Crocket, Scorcher, Fullturn, Sabrego, Rampart, Switchfoot, Fortunate Son, Divina, Minx, Platina and other Merlin offspring have carried his size, ideal conformation and sweet nature into some of the top herds and show rings in the U.S., making their own mark on the next generations.

xx For Reference: GNLC Silvertone (herdsire)
DOB: May 26, 2000 (ILR #228145)
Parents: MCF Etol x GNLC Ninko

After distinguishing himself in the herds of Doug & Jamie Sharp, Colorado, and both Justin Timm and Sherry Tallmon of Oregon, Silvertone’s life and breeding career ended here on our ranch where it had begun 17 years before. Silvertone was our favorite son from MCF Etol, our magnificent “E-line” sire who had the same handsome tuxedo pattern. Silvertone’s dam is GNLC Ninko who is also the dam of GNLC Queenie in a line that locks height and athleticism into its offspring.

Silvertone was 47” at the withers.

xx For Reference: Sijama Ikandy (herdsire)
DOB: Oct 13, 2013 (ILR #286498)
Parents: GC'S Inca Legend x Sijama Zamora

We are grateful to Marilyn & Bob Wynia for sending Sijama Ikandy to us in spring 2017 and 2019 to breed to our Merlin and Hightower daughters. This amazing male stands 49.5” at the withers and 80” at the poll, and has the type, style and ingredients to greatly complement our herd. His dam, Sijama Zamora, is one we know well as she is also the dam of Sijama Zestie in our herd. Zestie nicked so well with Merlin that we bred them five years in a row and had a standout cria every time. In exchange, GNLC Hightower spent spring 2017 and 2019 at Sijama Llamas in Oregon. Hightower and Ikandy have a history going back to their early show careers when, at the Cascade Show, they competed against each other in a two-judge system in which they each received a Best of Show award. Thus began a friendly rivalry that has moved from the show ring to our breeding pastures.
