Minis are HUGE! 

A Llama qualifies as a mini if they measure no more than 38" at the withers. At E2U! Ranch, we have several miniature Llamas and hope to build on this herd in the future. 

How to Measure a Llama: 

One of the most accurate ways to measure a Llama is to have your Llama stand squarely on a level surface next to a wall.  Take a carpenter's level and lay it over the Llama's back at the withers (on the shoulders just where the neck joins).  Let one end of the level touch the wall and get the bubble in the middle.  Then make a mark on the wall under the end of the level. Now you can move the Llama out of the way and measure up the wall to the mark. This is a fairly simple way to accurately measure your Llamas. 

A Llama can be registered as a miniature any time after registration with the International Llama Registry. However, final miniature status is granted only to animals three years of age or older. Immature Status:  A Llama under 3 years of age may be registered only if its mother is a registered, mature, mini Llama or the mother is registered foundation stock and the father is a registered mini Llama.  

Mini Classifications

1. Miniature Llama: Llamas three years of age or older that measure no more than 38 inches at the withers may be registered as miniature Llamas.
2.  Miniature Foundation Stock: Llamas that are used in a breeding program for producing miniature Llamas but exceed the 38 inch height standard for miniatures by no more than two inches or forty inches maximum height may be registered as foundation stock. This standard was set by the Association in recognition that height is a genetic trait and breeding down is a realistic approach to developing miniature Llamas.
3. 

Immature Status:  A Llama under 3 years of age may be registered only if its mother is a registered, mature, mini Llama or the mother is registered foundation stock and the father is a registered mini Llama. 

The American Miniature Llama Association was founded in 1999 for the purpose of sharing opportunities and information among owners, breeders, and persons interested in miniature Llamas.Ears to You! is a member of the American Miniature Llama Association (AMLA.) Please visit their web site for more info on minis!


The association now has a growing membership, a full slate of officers, defined classifications, and their own Registry. The goals of this association are to raise healthy Llamas with good breeding conformation, and nice fiber, but those animals that will remain small in size.
