In 1987, we bought a young male llama at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
so we could see what llamas were all about ... and that was the beginning of Figment Ranch.
We have now grown from one little boy to approximately 70 llamas and alpacas.
We learned very quickly that they are the most wonderful animals that we have ever dealt with!
Over the years we have become one of the most successful llama ranches with
several ALSA Performance Champions.
Even though breeding and training performance llamas is our specialty,
we also breed and train halter, pet, and guard quality animals.
Over the years we have rescued many llamas, alpacas, tortoises, exotic birds,
bearded dragons, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, guineas, chickens, dogs, and cats.
The owners of Figment Ranch are Ruby Herron, Robin Turell and Sean Price.
Figment Ranch is an active member of the
Alpaca and Llama Show Association (ALSA), the South Central Llama Association (SCLA)
and the International Lama Registry (ILR).
A Llama will guard livestock, sheep, goats, free-range poultry, etc. by their own natural protective instinct. The most successful guard llama should be a well socialized animal, accepting of humans, farm livestock, children and pets.
A pack llama can carry 70-90 pounds of llama equipment and usually doesn't have to carry extra food for itself. Llamas are browsers and will eat grass. Llamas are very quiet, very friendly to the environment and do not destroy trails.

(most are rescue animals) We do take donations.
These unique hand woven rugs are made from the fiber of our llamas and alpacas. After shearing each year we take the fiber to have it processed and woven.
The full service process includes separating and tumbling, carding, spinning cored yarn, and hand weaving into finished products.
These rugs are one of a kind:
