At Leisure Acres,
we're proud of our unwavering commitment to both
our customers and our animals. When it comes to the kind
care we provide, our animals speak for themselves ...
so we thought we'd let our customers do the same!
We purchased our entire starter herd
of llamas from the Leach's at Leisure Acres. We could
not be more pleased with both the quality of the animals
and the guidance and counsel we received from Sonja and
Chuck. With their assistance and our great llamas, we
have birthed some show quality crias with exceptional
personalities and gentleness. If you're looking for outdoor
animals to provide countless hours of companionship, we
know of nothing better than llamas and nowhere better
to buy than Leisure Acres.

Chuck and Sonja Leach
are true professionals. They have a wonderful farm and are
truly in love with their llamas. Sonja took the time to
determine my needs and find the best llamas for me. She
has always been available to answer my questions and is
quick to offer advice and encouragement. Her caring of both
the llamas and new owners is evident. She is an invaluable
resource who is also committed to further education of the
llama community. I highly recommend Leasure Acre Llamas
and have had a wonderful experience working with both Chuck

Chuck & Sonja,
We had a great time. I was touched
to have Sonja call Sunday night. The trip home went fine,
no problems, We stopped several times and Grady and Sam
jumped out to check on the "girls". We ran into rain at
the state line so when we got home it was dark and rainin,
but we got the girls settled in the barn.
I got them halter
broke on Monday. I had a hard time finding a halter small
enough for Patience. I had to adjust the smallest one
I had to the last holes! I used the famous "Mallon inntertube
method". It was actually neat to see them gradually succumb
and stop pulling back. At one point when I checked in
on them Patience was in a kush, just sort of "hanging
out". Chastity is a bit more feisty and stubborn. She
would relax on the tube until I came near then she would
jump around and pull back. After a few repetitions of
that she finally decided to quit that.
Later Monday afternoon,
since it was a beautiful fall day we took the "girls" for
a little walk around the yard. They did super, and in no
time were walking along with us. Patience really enjoyed
nibbling on the grass in my lawn but Chastity was a little
too nervous to eat while on the lead. My
older three llamas were quite intrigued by the newcomers.
The pony, Holstein calf, dogs, puppies, ducks, and rabbits
were real surprises for the new girls too! They are eating
fine and seem to be quickly adjusting. Thank you for the
bucket of pellets, that was a good idea for helping to ease
I am "tickled pink"
to have Chastity and Patience, and am very appreciative
of your letting them come to our farm. It was a pleasure
doing business with you, You are both wonderful! I'll send
photos and keep you up to speed on our progress.
